From the laughingly entitled Newshub we got these pearls of
wisdom imparted to us by Tova OBrien, (Ardern cheerleader aka
Newshub Political Editor), via the increasingly weird Duncan
Its been a busy year in politics with a new
coalition government learning the ropes and a cluster of political
scandals gripping the nation.
We are now in the silly season of journalists and others
awarding their high, lows, best, worst assessments of the NZ
Newshub Political Editor Tova OBrien awarded her
Government superlatives on The AM Show this morning, and it was one
now-former National MP who swept the awards.
No surprise, OBrien awarded Jami-Lee Ross her gold star. Then
read the following and then hit your head with a hammer. It will
make you feel much better.
The best political move of the year went to Jami-Lee Ross and
his kamikaze efforts in
parliament in October.
Driving from Auckland to Wellington, stealing
your bosses thunder just before hes about to give you the axe,
resigning, holding court with the press gallery with their jaws
dropped on the ground for an hour, she explained as an
unprecedented effort by Mr Ross.
Really! This was the best political move. Only in the bubble
that has engulfed those at Newshub such as OBrien,Gower and Garner,
such that they are obsessed with bringing down Bridges and
Frankly, on that basis the captains call by Ms Ardern re oil and
gas exploration surely qualified or,taking baby Neve to floor of
Ms OBrien followed this with gem
She said the way it was all done was absolutely
mind-boggling and shed never seen anything like it.
Clearly, she has led a very sheltered life. Especially as she
spent time in Europe as Newshubs correspondent obviously she never
noticed the stuff going on in the British Parliament.
Then, with her next pick, she unsheathed her stiletto and rammed
it into Simon Bridges.
But the awards for Mr Ross didnt end there, also
gaining OBriens award for worst political performance, a prize
shared with his previous boss, Simon Bridges.
So JLR was the worst performance....
