Vladimir Putin , Donald Trump and Jacinda Adhern all die and wind up in Hell. While there , they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The Devil tells them its for calling back to Earth. So Putin calls Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished the Devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars , so Putin writes him a cheque. Next, Donald Trump calls the USA and talks for 30 minutes. When he has finished the Devil informs him that the cost is 6 million dollars , so Donald writes him a cheque. Finally Jacinda has her turn and calls NZ for 4 hours . When she has finished the Devil informs her that there would be "no charge" and to feel free to call NZ anytime.

Putin and Trump go ballistic and ask the Devil why Jacinda got to call NZ for free'

The Devil replied " Since Jacinda became Prime Minister of NZ, the country has gone to Hell, so its a local call.

Sad but true......

Totally expected, when I heard on the radio she had a press conference to announce an election date I knew she would be announcing she was stepping down

Regardless of what anyone thinks of her politics and policies, the many personal vilifications, personal threats and gossip mongering about her partner have been a disgrace and a black spot against NZ, that reflect poorly on those making them, not Ardern

Nats have been handed it on a plate, only question is, will they fuck it up

I think NZ needs a change of government, if not just to get the zealots into a less bitter frame of mind lol

Key and all other PMs have suffered the same.Nobody is immune from any of the above you mentioned.

The problem as i see it is that no political party has the answers to fix whats wrong with NZ.

Labour obviously haven't or they would have done it and the Nats haven't as yet got a policy that can fix whats wrong.

Some party has to stand up and make the hard calls that are needed .

No where near to the same extent

And yes you are right about no one having the answers.  The Nats have gone back to yesterday's people in Collins and Muller

English being a Catholic and Key having  Jewish connections attracted plenty of comments thats for sure. 

They didn't get death threats and their family were not maligned.

I stand to be corrected though

Max is not at all shocked that the PM has annpounced her resignation at the fIrst opportunity in Election Year. Totally predictable.

Here's one thing Jacinda is NOT ...she is not STUPID. The writing has been on the wall in block capitals for months, and the news yesterday of the single-biggest annual increase in food/veg prices for 32 years is a clear portent of the ugly stats that will be rolled out over the next 9 months leading to Election Day. 

JA has much bigger fish to fry than being PM of a small liberal democracy that is currently railing against being turned into a socialist republic (or banana republic, take your pick). Helen Clark (and others) will have advised her to get out from the PM seat asap in order to retain her chances of getting a top job at the UN.

Labour will be getting it in the neck thruout 2023 from their most loyal followers, as well as the centre-right voters who trusted Winston in 2017 and got dawked.

Labour's only chance of salvaging this is to have Hipkins in charge from February and roll back some of their more radical 'reforms'. BUt the Maori caucus will be pushing hard for one of their own, more likely Kiri Allan than Nanaia Mahuta.

The other thing that is going stick in the craw of the Teds of this world, it wont be long, and she will be Dame Jacinda lol

And so she should be, will be looked upon in awe as a great achievement once she lands in NYC for her next role ... either UN humanitarian role or WHO in quasi medico role advising nations on Covid. Perfect CV for either role, our first NZ genuine international Stateperson having earned internation recognition and applause.

All very well deserved and earned.

Because she has such a global persona, I would like to think that can be used here in NZ.  Whether the haters like it or not, she is able to open many doors that no one else in NZ can.  I see Biden talking her up big time

Also means she can stay in NZ, which I believe is what she wants

Max doesn't believe anything she says, other than the self-evident truths....eg politicians are human. IMO a contributing factor to the decision to resign is her mental/emotional wellbeing. The last three years have been extraordinarily difficult for everyone, and political leaders all over the world have struggled to deal effectively with Covid issues and consequent effects on wider economies.- to wit, Boris. Scomo, Trump, Trudeau ...

JA needs a long break from politics for her own wellbeing as a young mother.

The consequences of Labour's reckless borrowing/QE and mismanagement of the economy are only just starting to be felt. By midwinter, when many thousands of homeowners have to re-fix mortgages at 7%p.a. or more and construction firms start laying off people, the pain will be more palpable. And JA can look the other way and say "not my fault, go talk to the PM"

Her high ambition demands will send her overseas, she would be wasted here, sitting on a board as a Director of a power company or bank would be insulting. She is an international leader, our pond too small

Agree on the mental health aspect, tough gig the last 4 years.

Interest rates increasing highly predictable 30 months ago. Have little sympathy for those who went nuts over the last 2 years and find they are in huge financial difficulty, it was plainly forecast .. even the incompetent Reserve Bank manager who facilitated it thru inactivity was warning 18 months ago. A life lesson, greed fails in the end
