  2. Both of these “moderators” are left wing aren’t they? This will make the debates fair won’ they?

    • Despite Hosking bending over backwards to be totally impartial you can’t have Hosking as moderator as we can’t hear the debate over all the nashing of teeth from the left as they lose their tiny minds. 🙄🙄🙄

  3. I have watched the debates on parliament TV between these two women – Judith is always calm and just laughs at cindy. Cindy on the other hand, who gets all the air time to answer the questions put to her is just awful, vicious and comes across as mean. When Judith has more chance to actually debate, I think cindy’s true colours will really show

    • All Judith has to do is say to Cindy when she goes off, (as she will) is to point out “Be kind, Thats not very kind, etc etc.

    • Does Jacinda actually answer questions? I hear diversion, obfuscation, or the now tired classic – I refuse to accept the premise of that question…..and rarely hear a convincing answer. I do not see any solid intellectual substance necessary to convincingly take the job as PM. I have little confidence in the selected moderators. I do not see them as impartial.

    • Goofy with the Dyed hair.

      Still applicable today…on two fronts

      1) Goofy is still hopeless with money and cant contain expenditure at Auckland City

      2) The Liebour policy was complete bullshit in 2011, 2014, 2017 and if there was any policy in 2020 it would be a sack of smelly old bollocks like everything they touch.

  4. The first ‘debate’ between Judith and Ardern is on the 25th of August. What is the betting that there is going to be a massive Covid-19 outbreak on the 24th August.

  5. The way that smelly, lefty idiot Campbell Dead stutters that will take up two thirds of the yik yak time so there will not be much opportunity for an ‘exchange of ideas’.

    Not that Ardoom has any decent ideas to exchange.
    No Eye Deer Comrade.

    • Don’t you just hate it when the moderator thinks they are the most important voice there and won’t shut up imparting their opinion and explaining the situation to the ‘ill-informed public’!

      We want to hear the debaters and make up our own minds without hearing what the moderator thinks. STFU! 🤐
