    Default Jacinda Ardern New labour Leader

    Well looks like Little, like Key, jumped ship.

    One of MANY articles https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/pol...avis-all-about

    The new Deputy, Kelvin Davis, looks like the type of guy who doesn't take any **** either. Maybe what the country needs instead of the gutless whimps running the place now .

    No I don't think she will. At least these appointments were made by Caucus.

    IMHO, a very impressive press conference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxejFpT8TD4

    Shifty Bill, the Double Dipton boy may have some opposition now. Go Jacinda!
    Feel a bit sad for Andrew though, but he did the only thing left to him, really.

    NZ City says....

    "New Labour leader Jacinda Ardern says she she'll bring "relentless positivity" to the party as colleagues draw comparisons between Helen Clark and David Lange."

    A bit early to do this comparison! To my mind, she wouldn't have to do wonders to be more presentable than Andrew Little. His previous life as a union boss made him what he is today.

    In my time I have had a few dealings with union bosses and generally found them to be humourless B**stards with only having the opinion that they are right and the company managers are wrong.

    I suspect Jacinda is there as a caretaker until the heat's on for the next election.

    Forget the window dressing of a young attractive young woman, a complete contrast to the dour Little. I would thought Labour may have recognised a safer bet and much more capable Stuart Nash.

    I'll stick with National - the devil you know.
    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.
