Jacinda got this right.
In my view.
Of course, I could be biased. Afterall, it was I who was berated in caucus by the erudite King Country farmer and his second lieutenant McKinnon and my neighbouring MP John Banks, for daring to propose at a branch meeting my electorate of Hobson (great name that: Hobson!); that National adopt Labour’s anti-nuke policy.
What’s worse for they who condemn me as a – perceived- acolyte of the “evil empire” (aka Red Squad and Arms dealer and Russian agent etc), it was the Hobson Executive’s agenda item at the Dunedin Conference 1989 where I spoke to the merits of adopting Labour’s anti-nuke policy, which was adopted by the Conference and which subsequently became policy of National when it took the Treasury benches 1990.
Of course, this is not the first time I have uttered charitable utterances about Cindy – or – her pedigree. For example, I spoke about the qualities of her dad.
But, be assured, I am no toady. And so, I do say, ‘Jacinda. Pushing Maori down the throats of the majority who increasing harbour rising animosity, will be the undoing of your miraculous rise to stardom.’
Wow! Am I a racist bitch for speaking contrary to Labour policy?
As I penned in, A Step Too Far I have a powerful Maori pedigree of my own. What’s worse for they who would slag me: Its Royal pedigree.
In my view, You Done Well, Prime Minster with your stance on American Nukes for sale (price not disclosed).
But tread carefully on the fabric of the majority of New Zealanders.
