Now – there’s something about Ardern.
A magic – an emotional intelligence – an intellect all distilled down into a sharp syringe loaded with adrenaline aimed straight to the dying heart of the Labour party.
I felt strongly that Ardern was the answer to their woes and called for her installation as leader more than a year ago.
Better late than never and as it turns out the timing may well be impeccable.
My only fear is that the runway might be slightly short but given her piloting skills thus far I reckon she will land this baby.
