Cat fight goes to round two

Nikki Kaye and Jacinda Ardern are in a cat fight and so far only Nikki has her claws out.

Frankly, I didn’t think she had it in her:

National MP Nikki Kaye has launched an attack on her former opponent in the Auckland Central seat – saying she’s all show and no substance.

“I’ve been in Auckland Central for eight years, I struggle to name anything Jacinda has done”, she said in Parliament on Wednesday afternoon.

Ms Kaye says Labour Deputy Leader Jacinda Ardern failed Generation X and Y by not supporting a rise in the superannuation age.  

She also criticised Ms Ardern for her public image, saying she will do “a whole lot of photo ops, she’ll be across every billboard, but she absolutely failed our generation on her first day in the job.”

Jacinda Ardern was surprised at the attack, and told Newshub “It’s certainly not a style of politics I’ve seen her use before”.

“Nikki and I have run against each other in Auckland Central for a number of years and usually pretty much stuck to the issues and avoided making it personal. I’m going to stick to that.”

“I’m going to stick with the way I like to do politics, and it’s making sure that you keep away from making it too personal. But each to their own.”

Matthew Hooton was onto this straight away.

The same could be said of Princess Nanaia Mahuta.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
