Do median barriers come in three different sizes?

Jacinda Ardern either thinks that median barriers come in three different sizes – small, medium and large or she isn’t aware that they are called median barriers.

A reader emails:

Hi SB… did you watch Adern’s AM Show interview this morning? When talking about today’s ‘hot topic’, she can’t even get the words correct! ‘Medium barrier’? Even a simple blonde like me knows that it is ‘median barrier’. She said it twice in this morning’s interview so it wasn’t a one-off; also in a TV1 interview last night.

She also, in the Newstalk ZB interview, denied that the fuel tax was a tax.

So, to sum up: We are now going to be unable to pass slow cars on roads because of medium-sized barriers blocking our path and the tax that will be paying for them isn’t, in fact, a tax because it is just an increase on an existing tax.

Got it.
