Now Jacinda is pushing for a republic

Not content with being appointed to her current role, she is now making a push for a republic.

As usual she is tone deaf, making her comments on the eve of a trip to the UK for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

Of course she never will say this in NZ media, no, not our Jacinda, she instead makes the comment in The Guardian:

In an interview with British newspaper The Guardian, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said she expects New Zealand will become a republic in her lifetime.

While she couldn’t remember the last time a voter asked her about the matter, she told the paper it was highly likely.

“When I have been asked for an opinion, I think within my lifetime I think it is a likelihood we will transition. It is not something this Government is prioritising at all though,” Ms Ardern said.

“The most important thing for New Zealand is we have a very special arrangement and relationship via our Treaty of Waitangi, and the relationship between Māori and the crown, so before any conversation like that occurs, that is something that will needed to be resolved within New Zealand.”

The matter was a decision for the royal family to make, she said.

“No one really wants to discuss [succession] because of course we all treasure the leadership globally that is displayed by the Queen, but ultimately that is a decision for the royal family.”

However the soon-to-be first-time mum said there was fondness for the members of the royal family when they visited New Zealand.

End of quote.

Let me guess? We need a conversation on this?

I’m glad the government is not prioritising this, I mean she hasn’t eliminated child poverty yet. When she works out that housing is still a disaster, transport solutions, aren’t…and they need a weapon of mass distraction, watch them roll out the republic.

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.
