Jacinda Ardern made a captain’s call on the possibility of introducing a capital gains tax without putting it to voters.
Just a couple of weeks ago deputy Kelvin Davis was rebuked for saying it would be put to voters.
Yesterday it was her finance spokesman Grant Robertson who fronted the media to say that was no longer the case.
The captain called wrong.
It shows her inexperience.
It shows the party isn’t ready for government.
It shows their leader isn’t ready to be Prime Minister.
Experience and judgement matter and this episode shows she lacks both.
