    As a kiwi watching this, it's decent journalism, everything you needed to know in under three minutes with very little spin. Would've been nice to have seen a mention of David Seymour and the ACT party gaining 10 seats in parliament but whatever

    No one should be declaring victory just yet. NZ is an island nation in the bottom of the world, sparsely populated I mean there's more people in Brooklyn NY than there is in NZ and they have had new cases and I give Arden tons of credit for weathering the crisis relatively better than many nations.

    I am from New Zealand and am proud to have Jacinda Ardern as my leader. In the past year that has been dominated by Covid, we can finally compare how competent and effective every government in the world are by looking at the death rates. New Zealand is one of only a handful of western democracies to have passed the Covid test. Nearly every country in Europe, Latin America plus the US failed spectacularly. The Labour Party earned their right to be elected by a landslide (whereas the world hopes Americans will throw out Trump). NZ may be only a small country, but its government listens to scientists/doctors and is COMPETENT at doing its job! On Covid, the approach NZ has managed to take, and the results it has gotten, has more similarities with places like Vietnam, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia than the countries it is normally peered with.

    Legit, one of the better politicians I've experienced. Doesn't blame others. And actually tries unifying her country.

    A part time PM for NZ and a part time MUM for her baby – where are the men of this world??

    US could learn a lot from New Zealand.
    NZ so successful people no longer required to wear masks or social distance. That's the difference between a great leader– Ardern, and a terrible "leader"– Trümp

    Enoch Powell, was RIGHT!!!
    He knew Multiculturalism, Diversity and Racial co-existence is WRONG!!!
    He supported Mandatory Repatriation of all Illegal Immigrants and other Coloured Dependent!!!
    Enoch Powell's, River of Blood Speech, 20th April 1968…
    Showed Polls taken afterwards, that 74-75% of The British People, agreed with Powell's opinions on Mass Immigration!!!
