Ardern Celebrates Banning The Very Thing That Saved Kushila Stein's Life

There is an hilarious social media blitz currently while the part-time PM is overseas, highlighting her achievements to date.

It is hilarious because it really reads at this time of year like a school awards ceremony for the doongy kids.  You know, those loathsome prizes they give out to academic underachievers for things like "best and fairest" and "helping the teacher" and the really kicker "effort", which is code for they had to try hard because they're too thick for a real prize.

Ardern, sitting at her desk, spoke about how her government created 92,000 jobs, banned semi-automatic and assault rifles, built more than 2200 state houses, introduced the zero carbon bill, deployed over 1600 new police officers, and banned single-use plastic bags.
She also spoke about the 140 million trees that were planted, the free lunches in schools programme, and increased wages for police, nurses and teachers.

Even the left-wing blogs are sniggering as none of the achievements actually are anything they really want - like reducing poverty, increasing wages, kiwi build, state housing etc...etc... In addition, National will feed off this like hyenas and put out their own campaign showing she actually hasn't achieved most of this at all.  A lot was already in train under National or like the lunches has yet to even be rolled out.

Media have over reported its relevance worldwide quoting that it had attention from people completely removed and insignificant from New Zealanders lives.  And the ubiquitous cheerleader in Helen Clark.

The only thing really that Ardern can say she has actually delivered of any significance since becoming PM was a baby.

What is relevant however is this.

The timing couldn't be better with the stupendous news that Kushila Stein spent two days in an inflatable dinghy and credits her survival to three plastic bags and sugar lollies.

Crete looking gorgeous 

She wrapped herself in plastic bags to stay warm, and survived without drinking water by snacking on a 'handful of boiled sweets' during her two nights lost at sea. 

Ardern has banned plastic bags and will I am sure of it progress to listen to the health lobby to ban hard boiled lollies at some point.

It just goes to show is that absolutely nothing is evil on its own, just the way we use it.


  1. Haha, "doongy" - there's a word I've not heard in a few years!
