No, Jacinda, you’re wrong, check with Andrew Little

Jacinda Ardern has called people smugglers “parasites”:

The Prime Minister has denied New Zealand’s refugee offer last year encouraged people smuggling, after an allegation surfaced in the Australian media.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she was advised any heightened “chatter” among people smugglers who may be targeting New Zealand was not unusual.

A story in The Australian quoted unnamed intelligence sources confirming three boats had been intercepted, destined for New Zealand. It claims the sources believed New Zealand’s offer to resettle 150 asylum seekers was encouraging people smugglers to target this country.

There was a similar news report late last year.

Ms Ardern said people smuggling activity, and talk about coming to New Zealand, ebbs and flows and this was nothing out of the ordinary.

I consider them [people smugglers] to be parasites. They prey on people’s vulnerability. They manipulate situations and use any propaganda they can to take money from vulnerable people.”

She said she had no comment on whether the Australian government or intelligence agencies have been leaking details to Australian media.

Surely she is wrong. Andrew Little told us who the real parasites were:

As you can see Jacinda Ardern must be wrong. Andrew Little considers that the ONLY parasites are employers.

She should check with Andrew next time before calling anyone other than employers parasites.
