Ardern's credibility in tatters

Ardern is under increasing pressure, as she tries (but fails) to defend her government's management of protecting our borders. Her spin is no longer credible, and her Team of Five Million feel badly let down.

Our border quarantine rules are a joke – and a total shambles – risking us all. Ardern has let us down. Bloomfield has let us down. The glitter has been exposed. The bottom line is we can’t trust this government to do anything right, when it comes to implementation. This is a government of spin and glitter. We deserve better. We need to get New Zealanders working again – but we need to do it safely

Ardern is showing no leadership - Health Minister David Clark continues on as a total ineffective minister, and Ardern is not brave enough to do anything about it. The truth is that her Cabinet is incredibly weak, and so three people are being relied on to carry the entire load. This is not leadership - she just relies on "star dust'" and as Albraham Lincoln once said “You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”

This is a huge opportunity for National, but its leadership needs to leave their paranoia at home, and trust its MPs to be a united team with the skills to get New Zealanders working again - albeit safely.
