    When even the far left failing rag the Dom Post goes after you you have royally stuffed up, they give Ardern a partial swerve so they havent gone totally off piste. Its a well written piece though.

    Well I thought it would be a race between Watkins and Trevett to leap to Arderns defence well it turns out Audrey Young has managed to get there first and unbelievably has managed to make Ardern a victim.
    I think you have to suspend rational thought to believe that Ardern didnt know anything, maybe not from Kirton but definitely from Woods, and if she didnt then both her party and her cabinet dont think she is much cop so there was no point in telling her.

    I see Mr T has sacked another one of ‘his inner circle’; Rex Tillerson
    NO reasons given so far
