Clark resigns

has resigned as Minister of Health and as a Minister.

I think this shows Labour is very worried about the polls and how his carrying on would continue to erode their previous gains.

Of interest is he resigned, rather than sacked. Ardern kept saying she has confidence him when it was clear no one else did. She should have sacked him on the day we entered Level 1.

Chris Hipkins has been appointed Minister of Health (which is what I recommended a week ago!). It shows how devoid of talent they are that they had to give the portfolio to someone who is already overworked with Education, State Services and Leader of the House.

Politically this is good for Labour. People were appalled at how Clark dumped on Bloomfield, which was the last straw. Clark going removes that weeping sore.
