A BEAUTIFUL PERSON, MAYBE TO SOME?.



I do not subscribe to the too often quoted assessment that Taxinderella is a beauty.
Nice hair, yes, a smidgen of youthful skin, yes again but those teeth and the substantial ears when the hair is pulled back, then it is the beauty to be reserved for parents and close relations.

Of course when lined up with the usual bunch of females who inhabit so much of the socialist landscape revelling in unfortunate degrees of the attractive  while largely eschewing the clear advantages of makeup, I guess Ardern has some assets on view.

To base the suitability as elected leader of the New Zealand increasingly fragile democracy on a warped view of beauty is shallow in the extreme but situation normal for a media that is drowning in a deficit of ability.

That said Ardern has a wonderful modus operandi to avoid anything that could reveal her astonishing lack of acumen as to what makes for a successful western democracy to function, with glib use of vague responses and clearly efficient communication skills in the face of an unquestioning media.
Her use of tears when confronted by a large number of shoes outside the Parliament to represent the country's less than admirable suicide rate was masterful but when viewed against other campaign tactics was revealed as shallow and artificial in light of the truth as I understand it.
When coupled with the alarming extension of abortion to far greater foetal development and the removal of that very fraught killing of the unborn from the crimes act then a faux regard for life so well expressed in the  staged shoes event is nonsensical, unethical and totally manipulative.

"Lets do this together" is another unchallenged facet of the Labour campaign to be revealed as  rather tawdry; with the divisive activities around ageist attacks on benefits and taxation, the destructive attitude to rural and provincial sectors, her outright bribery of students while making things harder for young entrepreneurs wanting to just go to work and succeed, making saving and growth  of personal asset creation dirty words and activity to be taxed out of any chance of a  successful result.
Suddenly "together" becomes a massive misrepresentation of what will continue this country's progress in an increasingly challenging real world of commercial success that has delivered under the management of the last nine years

An accurate campaign slogan for what is happening under the new brightline test could well be;
"lets restore equality by making everyone equally poor", that folks is what we have in store should shallow and incompetent become the focus.

Presumably the subject of the childish name-calling is Jacinda Ardern, although a citation is needed for these supposed claims she's beautiful. No-one gives a shit what you think of her appearance, just like no-one gives a shit what I think of Bill English's appearance. It's almost comical to see how difficult right-wing men find it to assess women on the basis of something other than what they look like.

That does seem to be a current right-wing talking point. Which is pretty rich, coming from people who've spent the last nine years singing the praises of a glib con-man.

Suddenly "together" becomes a massive misrepresentation...

That might make more sense if the word "together" did actually appear in Labour's slogan "Let's do this." Maybe you're confusing it with the Greens' earlier slogan "Better together."

The issue with appearance is that Jacinda is being paraded about largely because of appearance. I don't really care about looks in a PM because substance matters more but on the basis of substance she looks pretty flimsy. Running a country is not a reality show.

I think we all assessed Hillary Clinton accurately, corrupt. "Crooked Hillary" stuck.
Don't forget to buy her book, out today. She needs the money.

As for "smile and wave", who will remember him two weeks from now?

It's all Prime Minister Jacinda from now on, rocking a Team New Zealand outfit, standing with the team on a shiny new mono-hull yacht, impressed with where shes ploughed all those additional tax dollars she's so desperate to rake in.
