Phil Goff has done something Jacinda Ardern could do, overrule officials. After all, she is the captain of the ship.
Wise decision to cancel Pacifika.
Will she press ahead with the Christchurch memorial? with the middle east situation, a gathering of members from that community is a terrible idea.
I have little faith in her ability handle this. Its one thing having advisors but she needs to be able to read public sentiment and make calls that at least gives the perception its under control.
