Th latest political rumour being feverishly spread through the back channels is that Jacinda and Grant are at loggerheads over a secret new policy programme to the point that Jacinda has threatened to resign if Grant doesn’t give it to her.
Now sure, there is a secret new policy programme and sure it is transformative, but the resistance to it isn’t coming from Grant, it’s coming from the Wellington Bureaucratic elites who are terrified that Jacinda intends to actually make them help the people.
In the immortal words of Unionist Robert Reid…
…the Wellington Bureaucratic elites are neoliberal feudal lords at heart and have zero interest in sharing any of that power with the people they are supposed to serve.
For too long these Mandarins have shaped the 35 year neoliberal experiment in their favour. For decades, like a legion of Wormtongues, they have whispered into every Government’s ear that there isn’t any money and that this is the best that can be done, but Covid showed the Government can snap its fingers and make money appear on command.
Covid slaughtered every single sacred right wing cow there is and there’s no going back.
People have no interest in hearing National or ACT mantra about small Government when they are fleeing to that Government for protection.
Jacinda has taken the time over the Summer to decide being kind has to mean something, desperate rumours spread by Wellington Bureaucratic elites that there is a split between Jacinda and Grant are designed to create a rift not report on one.
I like it when the Wellington Bureaucratic elites are this frightened.
