August 24, 2020 Insight: Politics Podcast with Cam Slater – Episode 20 - 24 August 2020

The clown show of the government’s border and isolation policy rumbles on.

It is becoming apparent that Arthur has no idea what Martha is about.

Instead of competence we’ve got incompetence coupled with gross negligence.

Michael Morrah has been, until recently, the sole media voice questioning the competence of ministers. 

And for his efforts the Jacinda-maniacs have been abusing him for daring to point out that the Princess’s halo has slipped.

But things are changing because Andrea Vance, normally a pom-pom waving cheer leader for the government got stuck in yesterday over the big little lies the government has been peddling.

And it is a long, long list of lies.

The gloss has come off the Government.

They wanted a Covid election, well now they’ve got one.

We have a Government that seems to have gotten through the first lockdown through good luck rather than good management.

When you think about it for just a minute, it really shouldn’t be a surprise that the whole thing has turned out to be an omnishambles.

After all this is the same Government who did nothing for a year except employ high priced consultants in working groups, declared the following year to be the year of delivery and then delivered nothing, have failed spectacularly on key election planks like Kiwibuild and Light rail to Auckland airport.

It really was stretching credulity to think they’d done a brilliant job at the border.

Turns out they haven’t.
