I see all three coalition leaders attended an event over the weekend to announce motherhood and apple pie.

 

Winston kicked things off followed by his PA PM.

 

James didn't get to give speech at all, but he was allowed to answer a few questions.

 

 

Nicely summed up.

I am wondering what stupid thing the Coalition will try and slide under the radar this Friday, it's becoming quite the regular occurence. It's like Friday night fish and chips, but without the enjoyment.

Any visitor to NZ would be excused for thinking Winston is PM and Jacinda Ardern is his press secretary. It's sad and embarrasing. James Shaw is the most talented of the three yet is being sidelined by the flying circus.

Coalition is never easy. Sweden, Italy, Germany, Austria, to mention a few are having their moments too.

NZ Green Party should have gone with National and they would have achieved so much more.

 

 

They are working quite closely on a consensus climate change policy.

Oh Snap @MikeB4 funny you should say that I have a machine tech just arrived over from Istanbul last night to commission one of our new machines and he asked me this morning why does your prime minister's secretary talk. I kid you not that was his exact words.

Regardless of what the situation may be with Winston, an anecdote from a Turkish man could more likely be attributed to sexism rather than anything else.

 

There are certainly worse places, but Turkey ranks 120 out of 144 on global gender gap reports, NZ ranks close to the top.

Why because I am human and I have a sense of humor and can laugh at life and not take everything serious!!!
