Almond milk,sausages and fish bites but what he really needs is a gag

Is it just me or are you sick of Clarke Gayford’s inability to stay out of the limelight? He needs to understand that unlike his last celebrity girlfriend he doesn’t get to share the fame on an equal footing. Yes, he will get his photo in women’s magazines but this time around he needs to know his place. Jacinda has star billing and his job is to smile and to be supportive but most importantly to STFU. No one voted him into power and he needs to fade into the background like a good political spouse.

It is very interesting to compare Clarke’s article about Jacinda with Mary’s about Bill.

Mary’s description of her husband Bill is focused on him, not on herself.

[…] He was a first-year arts and commerce student up from the farm in Dipton […]

He was slightly tongue-tied, obviously shy and on crutches because he had fractured his foot.

My all-important first impressions were that he was a thoughtful, decent and genuine person who was interested in other people and their opinions.

I’ll leave it to others to judge the merits of his contribution to New Zealand and the policies he is campaigning on, but there are some things I can say about him on the basis of more than 30 years of close observation.

He is a hard worker. Whether it’s shearing sheep, helping with the housework or steering New Zealand through the Global Financial Crisis, Bill believes strongly in doing his best.

He cares about people. If you see him out and about he’s always stopping and talking to people. That’s not for show or because television cameras are there. It’s because he is interested in and enjoys connecting with others […]

Clarke, on the other hand, manages to make his article about his partner Jacinda all about him.

I want to let you in on a secret. All this time while I’ve been having a relationship with Jacinda Kate Laurell Ardern, I’ve actually been secretly and covertly vetting her on your behalf, New Zealand.[…]

I selfishly thought it was just me that felt special in her company, but I see […]

I’ve been so incredibly proud to watch her become the person I knew she had bundled up inside her.

[…] Jacinda is someone who so constantly thinks of others that she once woke in the middle of the night worried I was out of milk for my morning cup of tea.[…]

It was the best cup of tea I’ve ever had, and I hate almond milk.

[…] We met when I was in a bit of a low point in my life. Through her relentless support, planning and encouragement I stepped out to create what is now a dream international TV series.

[…]  I am prepared to share her with you because I really do believe we will all benefit from that – and I really do believe she has so much more to offer.

[…] I’ve said too much.
