Thanks for the conversation sweetie, but the answer is still no

Jacinda Ardern has twice gone to Australia to advocate on behalf of criminals and twice been told no.

She must be thick to keep harping on about it:

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has run up hard against the immovable object that is Australian domestic politics – and failed to change her counterpart Malcolm Turnbull’s mind on the plight of Kiwi expats.

At a press conference with Ardern, Turnbull made it clear Australia would not budge on the issue of Kiwi deportees and insisted the policy was both legally and morally right.   

The Australian government’s hardline stance on Kiwi deportees has strained relations between both countries – some expats deported “home” have barely set foot in New Zealand and have been separated from friends and family.

Ardern has raised the plight of a recent deportee who had never been to New Zealand before being forced out of Australia.

But when asked if Australia could morally justify the policy Turnbull had a clear message for New Zealand.

“Yes.”

To dispel any doubt, Turnbull added that it was a “fundamental right” and an issue of sovereignty for Australia.

In other words, ‘Thanks for the conversation sweetie, but the answer is still no.’

She’s wasting her time. Kiwi criminals aren’t wanted in Australia. She can be as judgy as she wants but the Aussies have more than enough of their own ratbags without imported ones as well.

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.
