    NZ PM Jacinda Ardern rewards Metallica petition boy with tickets







    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-47500366

    Putting into action what Mathew Hooton suggests what she needs to do — “Ardern is well advised to keep well away from anything difficult and, for the next 18 months, just smile and wave........and give away Metallica tickets”

    And no doubt Jacinda got her free (sorry complimentary) tickets as well

    And no doubt the taxpayers paid for the return flight from Hawke’s Bay to Auckland and all the other treats .....expensive photo opportunity eh

    Barclay failed to get job back Now we know why.

    "His unexplained suspension and subsequent resignation has caused significant political strife for Housing Minister Phil Twyford."

    Really? Still "allegations" at this time.

    Federated Farmers back with their next "Fart Tax" slogan, this time farmers are being treated like ATMs by the new govt. An expert has looked into the allegations and found the argument wanting.

    An Australian expert has praise for Adern's handling of shooting aftermath.

    "We expect our political leaders to behave in a compassionate and forthright manner in those circumstances. Ardern has lived up to this expectation."

    But the rest is ordinary? I wouldn't want to see what John Key's govt would have done in similar circumstances. Promised a lot and done nothing most likely. Ms Sloan thinks that simple borrowing on the taxpayer's purse was artful handling of the GFC by National?

    Maybe you have forgotten the Christchurch earthquakes that resulted in 2,000 injured and 185 deaths,

    Jacinda doing well in China ....being careful with what she says and plenty of smiles (no hugs yet)

    Knows the way to do business in China - the way this guy describes it:

    @SCS_disputes
    "Pavlovian conditioning is not something that usually comes to mind when dealing with int'l politics." Nothing has changed in the last 500 yrs. Grovelling & prostration were de riguer for early Western traders to Canton. Either Peking's way or the highway!

    I guess that's what you would expect when a leader of a small country visits the country in the centre of the universe (China = zhong guo = country in the centre). But let's face it - given the current occupant on the throne of the "beautiful country" (USA = mei guo = beautiful country) - it certainly wouldn't be different there, just less tasteful.

    Looks like Jacinda is a virtue signalling idiot.

    It is great that the Daily Mail is standing up for Women’s rights and Islamic Women’s rights in particular. Undermining liberals is just an unintentional bonus?
