More on Labour’s problem – X: David Farrar comprehensively demolishes Sgt.Schultz defence


David Farrar comprehensively debunks claims by Ardern that she didn’t know that the allegations involved sexual misconduct

A number of the  points made by DPF seemed especially pertinent, viz:-

  • That her Chief of Staff who knew, never told her
  • That her office director, who knew over eight months ago, never told her
  • That her Chief Press Secretary, who knew, never told her
  • That her closest friend and colleague, Grant Robertson, who knew three months ago, never told her


  • That she didn’t read a single newspaper item or listen a single radio or TV broadcast or read a single story online over the last five weeks which mentioned the allegations included sexual assault
  • That the daily print out of political newspaper clippings to her, somehow omitted all the ones which mentioned the sexual assault allegations


  • That when she said she told the Labour Party Council a month ago they are not the appropriate body to investigate a sexual assault, she was using that hypothetically and had no idea that was one of the complaints

Yet still we see comments such as this one:

Which is why the hypocrisy, obfuscation, misdirection and lies by Ardern and her political and media cronies, plus her troll army must be rebutted at every opportunity.

National must keep pushing on this.

She won’t resign, but her credibility can be severely shredded, such that #Jacindamania will not be such a potent asset in the 2020 Election.

Especially as she said in one of the Election 2017 Debates

Yeah, Right!
