The Herald contains the most remarkable piece of “journalism” today. Here it is in full.
She is hotly tipped as a future Prime Minister, but Auckland MP Jacinda Ardern tells sociologist Dr Jarrod Gilbert that having children and a life is more important.By Dr Jarrod Gilbert
Jacinda Ardern’s office is dimly lit. Her PA would later tell me it’s calming but I feel anything but calm.
I have rushed to Ardern’s office to get there by 9:30am to spend a day with her, and I arrive uncomfortably hot. Removing my jacket reveals an unironed shirt.
Don’t worry about that, we’re a rough old bunch in here, she says, standing there impeccably dressed. On its third leader in Opposition and mired in the polls, I might say the only thing in rough shape is her Labour Party.
Ardern is seen by many as a future leader and I want to know if that’s true.
