Two opinion pieces.
The first on Labour leader Jacinda Ardern from Kerre McIvor:
“She is creating a climate of terror designed to keep people cowed and bowed.
“It’s cynical, and I believe she was acting in the best interest of the country in the beginning, and now it’s become almost a mania.”
The second on National leader Judith Collins from Josh Van Veen:
While Collins and Muldoon are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to economic management, they share the same philosophic outlook. Collins, like Muldoon, speaks to a New Zealand that sees itself above class and race. She imagines a country where the language of political correctness has no place and anyone who works hard can get ahead. Don’t underestimate how many New Zealanders share that vision.
Is the first fair?
Is the second right?
