National leader Judith Collins has dubbed Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield a “deified”, “one-trick pony” who’s “good at standing up and talking about COVID”.
Her comments came after Dr Bloomfield apologised to Parliament’s Health Select Committeefor telling MPs he hadn’t discussed the transfer of an ill United Nations worker from COVID-ravaged Fiji to New Zealand with Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) officials.
Look, Judith had every right to criticize Bloomfield’s convenient memory lapse over airlifting Helen Clark’s mate out of Fiji despite NZ officials originally turning down the request but the way she has gone to attack Bloomfield in the manner she has while he is the Director General of Health in the middle of an ongoing pandemic is outrageous.
It’s like Judith just help herself and twists the knife out of spite and malice.
She would just be incapable of handling any Executive power rationally.
Attacking the Director General of Health in this manner when his credibility while fronting a pandemic demands total respect is a type of political vandalism.
Judith can’t be trusted with Prime Ministership.
