    The opinion writers have all written the same piece this morning hailing Ardern as the returning savior who with a winning smile will fix all the things that need fixing, this will be the same Ardern who was in charge 6 weeks ago not 6 years ago.
    The media need to get a bloody grip, the strikes, plunging business confidence, no kiwibuild houses, waka jumping etc etc etc all happened while Ardern was running things.
