NZ PM Jacinda Adhern calls it like it is

An official signed copy of the transcript of Jacinda Ardern calling a political opponent an “arrogant prick” will be auctioned off to raise money for a prostate cancer charity.

The bidding war on the copy of the parliamentary record has already reached $50,000.

It has been signed by both Ardern and the leader of the Act party David Seymour. 

Ardern’s comment was caught on a hot mic during parliamentary question time this week. 

Seymour had asked a series of questions about whether Ardern stood by all of her statements and policies and asked the PM to “give an example of her making a mistake, apologising for it properly, and fixing it”.

Ardern’s candour will ultimately help men who are battling with prostate disease.
