Jacinda Ardern in person. Billboard posters across central Auckland.

This Sunday 20th of August, 1pm.

This is the moment for you all to come down from the Far North, from Kaitaiai and Whangarei, from Dargaville, come up from Morrinsville, from Raglan, from Hamilton and Thames, from Tauranga, from Katikati, come on up Kawhia, from everywhere, and all across Auckland: the proud Westies, the Great South from Mangere, Otahuhu, Otara, Glen Innes, Panmure, Botany, Papakura, and from the east of course Epsom, Remuera and Kohimara, from Northcote, and Albany and Whangaparoa, from Mt Roskill and Mt Albert and Mt Eden and all parts in between.

There’s a power of charisma – and whole lot of policy – that makes it Labour’s time.

All you Labour types out there, Don’t Miss This Moment.

We have a government to change.

  1. The Labour slogan is a very clever piece of work.

    Simple , but very affective.

  2. mauī 2

    Reminds me of the Second Coming.

  3. NewsFlash 3

    Just hope the weather is kind, and the dirty politics campaigners stay at home, should be a good day for all.

  4. patricia bremner 4

    Jacinda has led beautifully. We need to support and confirm our choice.

    We need to build a ground swell. Come on Kiwis. “Let’s do this”

  5. ankerawshark 5

    Agree Patricia……………Jacinda doing a superb job……………just checked the forecast for tomorrow in Ak. It should be dry for the launch.

  6. Korero Pono 6

    Did I miss their poverty slogan?

  7. Dspare 7

    Does anyone know if there will be a webcast of the speeches? The snippits which make it to the evening news are often edited out of context to fit a narrative.

  8. Ad 8

    Crikey it’s a full Labour bus going into the Town Hall.

      Have fun. Tell us if anything interesting turns up.

      I’m heading into work to close out a project. But I suspect that will be more fun for me anyway.

  9. Ad 9

    Town Hall is now standing room only.

    We went from Town Hall to Victoria Street: 300 metres

    Media intense.

    People already consigned to grouping outside.

  10. Ad 10

    Holly Smith and choir did “Beautiful People”

    Don McGlashan next.

  11. Ad 11

    McGlashan did a speech not songs. He was good.

  12. Ad 12

    “For me, I want a country where no child is in poverty and is filled with hope and opportunity.”

    – Jacinda describing her core motivation for leadership as empathy.
