After destroying Duncan Garner on Monday with this devastating response to Dunc’s death cult capitalism…
“Duncan, do you for a moment question the fact that I do not have concern about the employment of New Zealanders? It’s why we have the wage subsidy, it’s why we put in the small business loan scheme last week, it’s why we worked with the banks on the business guarantee scheme, it’s why we have put through $3 billion of tax changes to get cash flow into business. I am desperately concerned about peoples employment, I’m also desperately concerned about their lives. Our job is to make sure that we do the best thing for both and it just so happens our strategy is focused on both. The sooner we win the fight agains the virus the sooner we get our economy back up and running but I do not want to make hasty decisions that lead to a yo-yoing between levels. So I am going to listen to the evidence and the advice and the data.”
…Jacinda followed that up Tuesday with a beat down on Simon Bridges in the House when he tried to play the same game…
“That member may have the luxury of sitting on that side of the House, not bearing the consequences of a wrong move, but we do not. We have to factor in the livelihoods of every New Zealander,”
The PM is on fire and is showing a confidence in defending her record that just highlights how hard it will be to defeat her at the election.
Bridges isn’t connecting with his watered down death cult capitalism with his demand for ‘daily’ refection on lowering us to Level 2 because the gestation period of this bloody virus is 14 days! The Leader of the Opposition can’t negotiate with the virus on a day to day basis, we have to wait the full 14 days because that on average is what the virus can incubate for.
Bridges can demand daily reflections to level 2 all he likes, unfortunately for him, the virus (like the majority of NZ), doesn’t listen to the Leader of the National Party.
Jacinda is beating this plague the way she is beating right wing media broadcasters and politicians.
