Even John Key can see it:
Labour made the right decision to make Jacinda Ardern leader according to former Prime Minister John Key.
Yes they did. A big bold gamble – supposed electoral suicide – and it worked.
“The camera likes Jacinda. Paul Holmes once said to me ‘on TV they see your heart’ – she responds well to that so that works really well for her,” Key told the AM Show this morning. “She’s been on TV a lot, she communicates pretty well and in the end people want to vote for people they like.
“I don’t think that will be enough to get [Labour] over the line obviously…”
Well let’s just see about that!
