Jacinda’s deportation hypocrisy

While the international press waxed lyrical over the high priestess of woke,  NZ PM Jacinda Ardern, standing firm against Australian PM Scott Morrison over the corrosive situation being created by deportation, she ended up revealing her own hypocrisy.

The Australian Department of Home Affairs reported 907 people had their visas cancelled based on character requirements in 2018. 453 of those were Kiwis.

While she may protest that Kiwis that are deported after committing crimes/serving jail time in Australia, Immigration NZ noted that in the past 5 years, 1,040 people have been sent packing from the land of the long white cloud. Most deportees were from Samoa (145 in five years), Tonga (120) and Fiji (113). To think of all the fossil fuels required to send these people back home when she knows their islands are being threatened by rising sea levels (even though they aren’t)!

Oh, and even though the Labor Shadow Treasurer Jim Chalmers may think Jacinda Ardern’s Wellness Budget is something to aspire to, he needs to look at the data which shows Australia is more generous on a relative and absolute basis, so to adopt it would be regressive. Furthermore, it is happy with higher unemployment as a consequence.

#TurnArdern

Although she is the high priestess of woke and a darling of the left, it seems not all New Zealanders are fans of their PM Jacinda Ardern.

A new Twitter hashtag, #TurnArdern, has emerged which encourages people to flip over magazine covers adorned with her face.

It was started by a 66-yo bricklayer, Colin Wilson, from Christchurch who said,

People are sick and tired of all the fluff articles – people want a prime minister and not a fashion model…A lot of us feel she spends a lot of time doing photo shoots instead of running the country.”

While the mainstream media lavishes praise on her, her domestic record is dreadful.
