Jacinda Ardern has personally tried to prevent media from asking about the Ihumātao dispute while on a charm offensive in the Pacific.
Her staff threatened journalists with restricted access to the PM if they did, forcing her Beehive team to intervene from Wellington.
After crisis calls from the capital, media were allowed a second shot.
Most open and transparent government ever!
It shows the pressure must be immense for her staff to be so stupid as to try and dictate to media that they are forbidden from asking her about the dominant political story in New Zealand.
If only they were more polite such as British Vogue, who never ask pesky questions.
