    Jacinda Ardern and the coalition. As the Hon Shane Jones said last year “something special is being uncorked here bro”……

      I’ll lift a glass to that! Slainté.

    • Muttonbird 1.2

      I think it probably is. Hard to see them being ousted in 2020 on the width of their intent. They’re more cautious than I want but that then brings on board hundreds of thousands of soft centrists so I can live with it.

      If they are confident leading into 2020 then I hope to see them be a lot more bold in socially conscious policy and budgeting.

      Could be a 12 or 15 year term.

        At least 3 possibly 4 terms, that explains somewhat the shouting and screaming from the ousted ones. I suppose they have the next stage of grief to look forward to.

        The sound of the Nat chopper blades will be heard probably after the second coalition term. But then again if the bridge to nowhere keeps up pushing the boat theme it could be the Natanic docking.

        Anyone feeling even slightly sympathetic?

    I am a bit biased but it seemed that Hysterical Shouty Bridges was badly astray in leading the Budget Reply. His content was all over the place and Judith was eying him in a speculative way. This year or next?

    Jacinda by contrast was funny and crystal clear. Wonder if her child will be able to emulate her rhetorical skill having been listening via Jacinda’s tum?

    • Muttonbird 2.1

      The trout isn’t any better. I watch the first seconds of a parliament clip one of the RWNJs here put up the other day and she was awful. She appeals to the very worst instincts in people and that is not healthy for anyone.

      And she’s proven to be corrupt many many times very recently:

      Dodgy Police reporting
      Oravida
      Swamp Kauri
      Attacking public servants
      Mentor to Slater

    • Muttonbird 2.2

      And as for her description of the budget as an “epic fail” – that is just pathetic. It shows none of the nuanced coining of a line that sticks with the public and media, which other more intelligent senior politicians have done in the past.

      Judith Collins is lazy. She’s a lazy scab on society.

      The “Epic Fail” budget is never something which is going to stick in people’s minds. Perhaps she’s relying on the Nat party trained media to come up with a line which she can steal.

    As for the stomach stapled Bennett, she decided to bring out a pie today in a social media post, presumably in a weak attempt at staying relevant.

    I have to ask what is the worst thing you can do as someone who has had their stomach stapled than promote junk food.

    Pathetic.

    • James 3.1

      Calling one a woman a trout and then another “the stomach stapled Bennett”

      classy. Do you talk to women in your life like that?

    Don’t be so sad….

    Trout lack scales, perhaps snake is more fitting:

    Corrupt

    American style sycophant

    https://thedailyblog.co.nz/2014/12/23/only-judith-collins-would-suggest-the-solution-to-domestic-violence-is-guns/

    “Minister for Corruption”

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11239846

    Basically scum in a human suit.

    The MSM that I observe are portraying the coalition government as underwhelming and ineffective. Not much positive about the government at all. So, the 3 terms + government guff is confined to small alt bubbles of wishful dreaming.
