PM Jacinda Ardern may have many talents, but an understanding of business is clearly not one of them.

In an effort to gain ‘street cred’ with the business community over plans by her government to introduce a capital gains tax she claimed she … “had experience in running small businesses, having run a small NGO and worked in small businesses ”

However, an OIA to the PM’s Office about these claims discovered that her ‘small businesses experience’ was not that extensive.

According to the answers: ‘The Prime Minister was the President of international political youth organisation IUSY. The small businesses the Prime Minister worked at were a fish and chip shop in Morrinsville and a gift shop. She has also worked at a supermarket’.

Oh dear her only business experience is an after-school job at the local chippy and supermarket.
