Letter to Prime Minister

Reply from Prime Minister


(Open Letter to the New Zealand Prime Minister)


Dear Jacinda Ardern,

I refer to the Newshub article, dated 23/01/2019, entitled "Outrage after BBC interviewer asks Jacinda Ardern if she plans to propose to Clarke Gayford" (https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/01/outrage-after-bbc-interviewer-asks-jacinda-ardern-if-she-plans-to-propose-to-clarke-gayford.html). This article was written some time ago, of course, but it raises some important issues:

  1. The headline is about supposed outrage, but there is no evidence given of any survey having been undertaken of how many people were outraged by the question, how many people were very pleased that the question was asked or of how many people couldn't care less.

  2. My explanation for this unprofessional and incompetent headline is that (as usual) the journalist was either a Feminist or afraid of his Feminist colleagues and bosses and therefore wrote the article about some fictional "outrage", instead of about the contents of the actual interview. This is typical of New Zealand journalism.

  3. The journalist reported the relevant part of the interview as follows:

    "Can you imagine asking your partner, Clarke Gayford, to marry you, or will you wait for him to ask you," Derbyshire asked the Prime Minister, who burst out in laughter.

    When Ms Ardern said she wouldn't, Derbyshire said: "You're a feminist?"

    "Absolutely, I'm a feminist," Ms Ardern replied before explaining she wanted Gayford to agonise about asking her and didn't want to let him "off the hook".

    I realise that most Feminists are women, which means that they talk a lot about Feminism in a vague sort of way, without even having an agreed definition as to what that word even means! Nevertheless, you have written an article entitled: "Jacinda Ardern: I am a feminist." (https://www.villainesse.com/girl-power/jacinda-ardern-i-am-feminist).

    In that article, you state, "if you believe in equality, you should be a feminist."

    Under the Official Information Act, could you -- as Prime Minister -- please tell me what official information you have that women forcing their male partners to agonise about issues and not letting their male partners off any hooks constitutes equality and is compatible with non-discrimination under the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990?

  4. Under the Official Information Act, could you -- as Prime Minister -- please tell me what plans you have to pass an Act of Parliament providing that, if and when another world war or major conflict arises, both women and men will be conscripted to fight in the front lines -- and not just men, as happened in World War I (https://nzhistory.govt.nz/war/recruiting-and-conscription)?

As far as I can see, Kiwi women like keeping their men on meat-hooks -- only taking them down when they want to complain that women want equality!



In due course, I received the following reply:
