Mark Richardson is spot on

Mark Richardson is sick of the Jacinda-mania sanctimony and pious handclapping: Quote.

Mark Richardson has launched a blistering attack at the “sanctimony” over Jacinda Ardern, saying she’s “not a pioneer when it comes to women holding successful roles”.

It comes as Ms Ardern was chosen as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by?Time Magazine?during what has largely been seen as a successful European tour.

“Can we all just settle down a little bit?” The AM Show sport host asked on Friday morning.

“Yes, she’s a pioneer when it comes to maybe being the Prime Minister of a country and having a pregnancy. She’s going to have a baby. That’s great.

“But I don’t think she’s a pioneer when it comes to women holding successful roles, having babies and still doing a fine job of it. That’s been going on in this country for some time now.”

“I’m sick the sanctimony that’s coming out of our disgraceful written media at the moment. They’re the ones that are leading this charge and they should be ashamed of themselves.”

Richardson says he’s not sure why there’s so much surprise that Ms Ardern is doing “a good job”.

“She’s an affable young lady and going to impress and she’s going to get on with the people that she comes in front of.

“I mean, John Key did that as well.

“She is the leader. And as one of these 100 most influential people I would hope as a leader of what is a fairly significant country in this world that she is actually influential.

“I’m just sick of all this symbolic crap.” End of quote.

Buggered if I know how she is one of the top 100 most influential people. She’s as dumb as a bag of hammers, actually gauche, and a virtue signaller who has nothing more to say with a lazy drawl than slogans.

She’s achieved nothing, will achieve nothing and doesn’t deserve any of the accolades these fools are bestowing on her.

Mark Richardson is spot on.
