Rabid Right Winger Stuart Nash agrees not to criticise women for their looks

Labour MP Stuart Nash has said sorry to Newshub political reporter Jenna Lynch after telling her she looked as though she’d had a “rough night”.

In a blog, Ms Lynch called out Mr Nash for commenting on her face, which was not covered by any makeup, as he arrived to speak to her at Newshub’s Wellington office.

Opinion: Embracing my bare face
“Labour MP Stuart Nash walked in trying to sell some bloody story about cops. He looked shocked, almost offended at my face,” she wrote.

“‘Gosh, did you have a rough night?’ No I didn’t. Unless you call being curled on the couch watching a movie with my partner a “rough night”.”

Ms Lynch said in her blog Mr Nash should be ashamed over his comments.

“I feel sorry for the women you work with on a day-to-day basis if you hold them to the same standard.”

However, he’s now apologised for his remark.

“Look, I don’t go out of my way to offend anyone at all – I’m very apologetic,” he said.

“I’m sorry that Jenna took offence and I apologise unreservedly – I completely regret saying what I did.”


Nash should never have apologised.  He should have doubled down on the deceitful little so-and-so from Newshub who decided she’d rather be the news instead of report the news.

That said, Nash is well used to ugly women considering the Labour caucus so has some expertise in that regard. She must have really looked dreadful if he commented.

Middle NZ though will know that Nash has a discerning taste and, unlike many other in Labour, actually likes women, is heterosexual and open about it.

One thing is certain: Jenna Lynch is never getting another tip or story out of Nashy.

    It sounds like there’s a que at the moment of people demanding apologies from Mr Nash.
    He should have told her that if she wants an apology, to take a ticket and stand in line.

      Does that headline need correcting Isherman? I know we’re not supposed to point out typos but perhaps that’s not good on a post about looks? Please delete this if the suggestion is inappropriate.

        Oh, duly noted :)

    This is all total nonsense. If a bloke turns up at a formal / professional situation lacking facial grooming (i.e. forgot to shave), he would be ribbed for having had a “rough night”. Why should a woman who forgoes normal female grooming be exempt from the same?

    A journo flake being all prissy, give me a break.

    A quick win for you there Jenna. What a lovely confidence booster in your pursuit of social justice for women. Can I now entreat you to join your Sisters of the Right in our efforts to repeal the slow creep of sharia the unenlightened are encouraging to embed in our society?

  • George

    She may not have had a hard night but that doesn’t excuse her appearance. But since when did those in the MSM have any dignity. Since when does she think that any one cares about what Nash said and above all Jenna, grow up. This is childish rubbish.

    It is a sign of disrespect, laziness and lack of self worth to inflict yourself on your colleagues in the workplace in anything other than what that workplace determines as an acceptable level of dress and grooming. Pity she didn’t have superiors who had done some military service.

      Ex military tend not to do so well in civilian organisations, just simply because they think their whims ought to be obeyed without question. I’ve seen more than one have to resign because of a god complex.

        Well, this one has done OK and has and has turned small businesses into multi million dollar entities. I think you will find there are more of us here too.

    Considering that Ms Lynch got her job at newshub because of her looks- hello ?

    Is she the replacement for Wellington Newshub reporter, whose name they hid [RP], while moving her on because of the Reserve Bank ‘Dirty journalism’ scandal

  • R&BAvenger

    Jenna Lynch – typical SJW/SJB/Generation snowflake? The gall of her. It doesn’t matter if a he or she, it’s just such an OTT reaction.

    More inventing the news, making themselves the news???

    By comparison Bob Jones was let off lightly when he called Air NZ hostesses ‘ugly’. There had to be a response from Air NZ for morale reasons but at the same time without annoying too much one of its (then) frequent flyers. So the Chair of Air NZ said that ‘there was nothing wrong with being called ugly – by a toad’.

  • jaundiced

    She obviously looked like she’d had a rough night. What’s the issue here?

    Are these people mentally challenged ? What’s Labour now , 26% ? Hell why not go for 20%, what a moron. I guess baby kissing, pressing the the flesh and greasing isn’t part of the job description anymore. The man should get a real job, he’s a liability.
