Looks like Child Poverty is solved, Jacinda moves to end filling out departure cards

Jacinda Ardern must be congratulated, she’s solved the housing crisis, child poverty, transport issues, climate change issues and it is only small stuff that needs fixing now…like filling out departure cards:

The Prime Minister wants to stop people having to fill out departure cards when they leave the country.

Australia has already put an end to the practice, and Jacinda Ardern said she would like to do the same.

She said members of the Australia-New Zealand Leadership Forum had raised the matter with her.

Ms Ardern said she would be asking Statistics Minister James Shaw and Customs Minister Meka Whaitiri to start moves on it.

She had already talked to them about removing what she called this “bugbear”.

I wonder if she can get Phil Goff to mow the berms again?

Or maybe something meaningful…like changing the side of the road we drive on?

She sure is tackling the tough stuff isn’t she?

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.
