    Yes the news have gone on and on. So do they with any major event that happens here.
    Chch earthquake, Pike Mine, but that didn't start a lot of whining about the news coverage.

    Do what I find it easy to do, read all the other news.

    I'm not a fan of Adern or her brand of politics, but this week has shown she has made the transition from being a silly little girl to doing and being something / someone useful.

    You'll probably find a lot of it is Comrade Clarke intervening and trying to run something now we don't have to change our shower heads.

    She has actually done a very good job over the past week and probably ensured that she will have an election win next year.
    Now if she could just control some of the idiots in her 3 party coalition government that would be a certainty.

    I think the preferred PM poll results are due out Monday. I'd be surprised if she hasn't skyrocketed to an unprecedented pinnacle there.

    It seems to me that a lot of her responses may have been scripted and hastily rehearsed. No doubt as allblack has alluded to, with H and H2 in the background orchestrating the performance. There are no magical wands available to accidentally change a mediocre performance to that of a star.

    However as a charitable gesture I'm begrudgingly prepared to give Comrade Jacinda the benefit of the doubt.

    I did not watch TVNZ or TV3 and quickly closed the online Herald and Stuff last week so I was bale to avoid seeing her.
