    Weird woman (?).
    The world is full of wierdos but we obviously need to have a better filter than an election to keep them away from government. She is a joke .

    A joke maybe, but only to the older and wiser, she is not talking to us and is scoring untold points with her listeners. Believers, they love her. She is far more influential than the crusty's give credit for.

    For sure she does with her listeners.

    But as Chris Trotter observed, she is following in the footpath of Jeremy Corbyn and there will be but one outcome :

    “By the time the Powers That Be were through with Corbyn, working-class Brits were cursing his name. By the time our own elites are through with Chole Swarbrick, she’ll either be a broken political doll – or New Zealand’s first Green prime minister.”

    Quite right, she has her own constituency & is telegenic & a very effective communicator. e.g. just as an indication, Chloe just as an MP already has 84,000 followers just on Facebook alone & latest post liked/loved by 1.4 thousand,
    compared to James Shaw 19,000 followers ,
    David Seymour 84,000
    or PM Chris Luxon who has a team working on his online content, 92,000 followers.
    Nicola Willis 47,000.


    If she becomes Joint Party Leader, her profile will take off.
    I think some seriously underestimate her.

    I think you are seriously over estimating her appeal, outside of her core constituency where she is no doubt very popular. But that is it.

    Ardern has over 1m followers and what a freaking disaster she showed herself to be - useless, clueless, incompetent and a quitter.

    Popularity built up via spin and BS seems to be the pre-occupation of the most useless woke leftist politicians - they gain while the whole country pays.

    Screw them.

    Am not suggesting she'd ever become PM, or have broad appeal, some of the Greens policies are balmy Imo (like others wish they would focus on environmental issues) just that a lot of young people, & those who feel they don't quite fit in mainstream society, or people who feel locked out of ever owning their own home, feel she is a voice for them, feel she personally connects with them, & she may energise & activate a group who have been too cynical or apathetic about politics to bother voting.

    I don't think as some suggest she will tank the Greens vote.
    I'ld expect the Green's to go up in the polls.

    Unelectable - Greens under Chloe & Davidson.

    https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/...g-unelectable/

    So the other interview was Jack Tame's conversation with Chloe Swarbrick.

    It was a shocker.

    Her refusal to understand how her Palestinian chants had been received was remarkable. This after mediation by the Human Rights Commission. This after Jewish members of her electorate had spoken with her.

    The left are famous opponents of hate speech, but to understand if speech is offensive you need to have the empathy to understand how the offence has been taken.

    Chloe seemed unable to comprehend the fear Jewish people have of that chant. She was unable to own any blame.

    The rest of the interview made me feel that the fresh and intelligent woman who entered parliament has been replaced by a hard line radical informed only by her own echo chamber.

    The Greens are in deep trouble. The Ghahraman resignation and forthcoming trial. James Shaw, the one calming influence, the man billed as a relationship builder, gone. The prospect of Davidson and Swarbrick ruling a radical socialist party.

    The damage is already evident in the polls this weekend with the Greens dropping 4.8 per cent to sit at 9 per cent.

    They're fast becoming unelectable. A socialist party that pays lip service to the environment and has forgotten about why they came into being in the first place.

    This is Chloe, the next co-leader of the Green Party of Aotearoa :

    Summation of her interview with Jack Tame.

    Her constant use of the phrase “let me unpack that for you” was rather amusing… one of her many diversionary excuses.

    Let us “unpack” Chloe’s interview –

    She’s against hate speech… unless it’s her. (In 2019 she campaigned on hate speech)

    She’s for debate on culture… unless it is about something she’s does not like.

    She’s for reaching across political aisle… but it only applies to other side.

    She’s for transparency… but just not for her.

    She can’t remember… if it’s embarrassing for her.

    Worse is yet to come.

    Only a matter of time before Nordic wild child Greta Thunberg will refugee herself into New, oops Aotearoa.

    Your guess whether she replaces Marama or Chloe!
