Thanks Christ for Jacinda being Prime Minister in the dark days ahead. Just pause to consider her leadership during the Christchurch atrocity and White Island eruption to this unprecedented pandemic. At each crisis, she has stood unflinching with compassion, empathy and courage, she is literally reshaping our definition of leadership in front of our eyes.
In the frightening weeks and months to come, when Government has to make very hard calls, I am deeply grateful that she is the one sitting at the top of the table making the final call.
As for Simon Bridges, this pandemic is calling for bi-partisanship, not pointless rancour.

The time for genuine co-operation is now comrades, the very fabric of our society and culture is at threat, we must work together, there is simply no other option.
Kia kaha dear friends.
