The funniest thing about yesterday was how the Green Party Leaders are effectively the kids from Flowers in the Attic in this Government – is James Shaw even allowed to speak directly to Winston?
The majority of media response has been underwhelmed and I don’t get people who are complaining about that response to Jacinda’s limp crisis management. Are you really surprised the Media wrote it off?
Of course they were going to do that – which is why you limit the events they can attack & set the narrative rather than react to it.
If there wasn’t a sense of crisis due to poor communication between the different parties of the Government we wouldn’t have had yesterday’s fairly hollow rah-rah. This Government needs to stop reacting to the media narrative and start setting it.
Celebrating 12months in power with strong spokespeople dominating the punditry panel shows in 2 months time would be resetting the agenda – yesterday looked panicked, left more questions than answered & felt like someone from Wellington had planned it.
And there’s nothing more vacuous and out of touch woke than something that looks like Wellington has planned it, you know, like your average Spark advert.
That’s what yesterday was, your average Spark advert.
How about they stop panicking, start a far better internal communication plan, utilise the personal relationships they already have existing with Winston within the Labour caucus and get some bloody runs on the board.
The depressed being failed by the mental health services, the beneficiaries punished by punitive spiteful measures, those who cannot buy a house, cold renters, those rotting in prison, exploited workers, a squeezed middle class, the homeless, families in motels and cars, the working poor and children in run down schools saw nothing in yesterdays forced error of a crisis management speech.
Less talk, more walk. Less hui, more doey.
