new NZ prime minister

Postby Katto » Thu Oct 19, 2017 6:38 am

good luck with that :oops:

After graduating from the University of Waikato in 2001, Ardern began her career working as a researcher in the office of Prime Minister Helen Clark. She later worked in the United Kingdom as a policy advisor to British Prime Minister Tony Blair,[8] and, in 2008, she was elected President of the International Union of Socialist Youth.

We might be ending up with Boris Johnson as our PM

Trouble is we’ve made a big cock up by voting to leave the EU. So whoever is in government knows that when it goes wrong they’re history. All opposition or PM hopefuls have to do is time their leadership bid announcement until day after the nation collapses and produce documents they’ve kept in their back pockets detailing their historical opposition to brexit.

I predict the uk in five years is going to be a divided third world country. We won’t be able to send a cricket team overseas and we will have ration stamps again. I recently found my grandfathers old ration book from WWII. I’ll probably need it.

You heard it hear first!

I agree with this. The debate in India when Brexit happened was what happens to the Indian investment in Great Britain. Indian investment in GB is because the industrialists saw this as a gateway to Europe.

Boris Johnson is a political version of Flintoff / Rooney / Stokes.
