The most united, upbeat Labour Party conference in decades comes to a conclusion with a speech from Jacinda Ardern. The Otago Daily Times is suggesting that it will include an announcement on wellness and health in schools.

The upper level of the Dunedin Town Hall has been opened up for public attendance. This is significant step; it shows just how confident the Labour Party is in Jacinda Ardern’s popularity. I can’t recall any other conference, of any party, where the showpiece speech has been opened up to the public.

Doors open at 1PM, the speech is due to start at 1.30.

Live stream is HERE.

  1. Nice. Hoping for something really great to finish the conference on a even higher high.

    Can’t wait.
    I an hoping that now she is the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern can repeat her pre-election statement ‘Climate change is my generation’s nuclear-free moment’

    Which of course, it is.

      The live feed seems to have stopped.

      From the written transcript: Only one solitary mention of the two words “climate change”. (followed by an aside that she had already talked about this).

      Surely the Prime Minister could have expanded on this, just a little.

      When it comes to climate change, Is New Zealand a fast follower, or a world leader?

      Doe the Prime Minister still think that climate change is the nuclear free moment of my generation?

      What will it take before our country’s leaders start taking this issue seriously?

      A massive loss of life and property for us, or our nearest neighbors?

      I hope not.

  3. There are some technical problems that are stopping me from editing the post. The live stream is here:


  4. I hope those who feel they are not included get some clarity.

    Not getting town hall yet. Perhaps the link goes live when her speech starts???

  6. Live on fb now. Clarke Gayford up first. Clean shaven, fans of that sort of thing will be pleased to know.

    Anyone else having trouble with the live stream?

  8. Hur, just got told off for applauding Clarke. Ok, I am in the press section and I suppose the meeja is supposed to be neutral, but c’mon people …

  9. JA announces commitment to employ 600 learning support workers in schools nationwide. The teachers unions will be thrilled, as it directly addresses the workload issues they have been talking about in recent months.

      WOOOO HOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanking you very much.

      That should ALWAYS happen, and just did.

      Freaking awesome news, this will benefit EVERY child in a classroom.

  10. Righto, that’s it. Big send off, standing O as Jacinda, Clarke and the senior MP’s leave the hall. Good times!

    Nothing about rail or road or zero carbon or climate change sadly either.

    Jacinda lost her way here sadly. – Disappointing to all.
