No Minister

Simon Bridges might have hit on something here.

I saw the following quote from Simon Bridges over at Homepaddock’s Blog yesterday morning when Ele ran a post headed `Quotes Of The Month‘ – there are heaps of them and it is worth a visit but I was taken with this one from Simon Bridges.

My worry when I think about Willie … [Foreign Affairs Minister] Nanaia [Mahuta], other ministers, is there is something a bit religious about this. A sense that ‘if we haven’t said Aotearoa 18 times by lunchtime, if we haven’t referenced the Treaty and tried to do some things in that area, we’ll have to go home in the evening and say a few Hail Marys’ – Simon Bridges

Then I thought further about it and I wonder if each Cabinet Minister has to stand and say the name of that mythical country (Aotearoa) ten times before the business of Cabinet is commenced.

  1. Uptick. We’re being conditioned to accept ‘wokespeak’ as normal …. all out of the Goebbels manual of how to remodel the country in your favour.
