    Curious article, indeed. Co-authored by Taxcindarella's speech writers and spin-doctors, perhaps?

    Well, it is interspersed with certain oddities like proposing to make Maori language compulsory so as to cure the country's every ill.

    Quite bizarre, that.

    the headline asks a clear question

    HOW ARE THEY DOING?

    Simon Wilson gives his verdict on whether the Labour-led government is as ‘transformative’ as it said it would be.


    and with 500? words

    instead of answering it

    finishes with 3 more questions

    Is it possible to run an effective government powered by kindness?
    If Ardern and her colleagues can show us the answer is yes, what would that change?
    Almost everything?

    asking questions is easy

    an example

    is it possible to have your cake and eat it?
    If Ardern and her colleagues can show us the answer is yes, what would that change?
    Almost everything?


    feel any wiser?

    or just confused by well meaning

    but meaningless

    twaddle

    good luck paying the countries bills with that

    when individuals try

    they are called dreamrs at the start

    con men or charlatans at the end

    I'm always impressed how 'Traffic chaos' now means 'driving very slowly somewhere'. Weather Chaos (It rained and/or was a bit windy) is a win too.

    The AM show just announced a traffic crisis in Auckland... because you can't get to work in 30 mins. At least one of the panel of 'experts' said that the word crisis is being thrown around for everything these days.

    I thought the transport plans released by the red team for Auckland were excellent.

    So now I have a crisis of identity.

    Funny you should say that I thought something similar... then I thought about kiwibuild and ring fencing and realised this road plan and the housing strategy couldn't possibly come from the same guy. I think Twitford got lucky on the transports plan with some good people in the Transport planning teams.
