Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is the next co-leader of the Greens. We won’t get the results for two weeks but we all know that Julie Anne Genter won’t win because of her huge handicap (being white).

She really should practise what she preaches and ‘move over’ and give ‘diverse’ Marama Davidson the role uncontested as, let’s face it, the best person for the job and merit-based appointments are so passé. It is all about identity politics these days and Davidson ticks all the boxes.

  • Activist
  • Brown
