Was this deliberate?

John Tamihere was on Q+A yesterday and made very?specific?references to non-performing Labour front benchers:

Across the whole line, whether it?s health, welfare or education, and those are the biggies. ??

This has to have been a deliberate attack…on the “front bums” of the front bench. The Labour MPs holding those jobs are?Maryan Street, Jacinda Ardern and Nanaia Mahuta.

Notwithstanding that, he is dead right on their performance.
