    The ”Jacinda Effect” is now being fleshed out.

      The ‘Jacinda effect’ has almost got a description – ‘when a political party (that was previously unpalatable to the public) is heavily promoted by the MSM as ‘fresh and exciting’ when later led by a youngish female with no real world life experience even though the party remains exactly the same dysfunctional unit it was before she became leader’.

        That descriptor is apt. But it wont stop those under its spell gushing sweet nothings. I watched her last night on the news talking to Polynesian secondary school kids. She made a joke about learning to drive with her policeman dad. Not a great move given the audience. But more concerning, I noticed a slight disconnect between her and the audience.

        ‘no real world life experience’……make it up as you go…desperado.

          One night a week in a fish and chip shop as a youngster…….don’t cut it.

              Don’t worry Blazer – I’m nowhere near taking your title of ‘king of stupidity’ – don’t be so defensive & petty.

              “and the other 37 years?”

              Considering Ardern herself in her defense of not having any ‘real-world experience’ could only mention the fish and chip job obviously not a lot else she has done outside the left-wing political bubble.

            ”2 fish and a scoop please luv.”

            ” Will that be with, or without salt, sir?’

              Customer: $2 chips please.

              Ardern: OK. Would you like chips with that?

    “If anyone thought it was [racist] of course we would apologise” – @jacindaardern on the Chinese sounding names thing on @NZMorningReport
    7:48 AM – 15 Aug 2017

    Although it’s highly unlikely I would ever vote for Labour, I would commend Ms Ardern if she distanced herself unconditionally from Phil Twyford’s race-based mischief-making. But that comment is lukewarm butt-covering, at best.

    • Phil is about as far up the Jacinda ranks as you could get – unless your name is Grant.

      To be fair he’s a political trollop. Where there’s perceived power you’ll find Phil.

      Chinese sounding names is the most piss weak reason to get aroused in recent …memory.

    seeking 100% sincerity in politicians on the campaign trail is an exercise in futility.We all know this…eh..Lew.

    I heard het on immigration and it sounding like business as usual but with a bit more caution. She didn’t use the old cliché that this nation was built on immigration, she said (something like) “In the past immigrants have built what this country needed and that will continue. But we need to match skills and deal with the education sector”

    Nothing to equal former executive of the year Kerry Mc Donald
    The high rate of immigration is a national disaster. It is lowering the present and future living standards of New Zealanders by serious adverse economic, social and environmental consequences.

    Is it a new phenomenon, a politician being articulate and positive-sounding on something which on some analysis is “full of shite”? Is it something limited to Little, Twyford and now Ardern?

    Or can it be that Quick Response Lew has always accepted that the authoritative sound-bite Steven Joyce, is always, well, authoritative and not “full of shite”?

    Is that a tone of disappointment from QRL that a hope has not been fulfilled or merely just a partisan snipe? To use the tone of the headline, is his story-provoking effort just another angle and presentation of a shite attack?

  6. Who is LewSOS? I note their tweets are often used in news stories. Their language however reduces the impact of what might otherwise be a valid argument.

    She certainly isn’t fooling anyone in this particular congregation 😀

    Don’t vote for Jacinda. She needs to shut up, go home and get in the kitchen where women belong and bake a cake for her boyfriend
