Unlike Corbyn Arden knows how to win elections.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has won a landslide victory in the country's general election.

With most ballots tallied, Ms Ardern's centre-left Labour Party has won 49% of the vote and she is projected to win a rare outright parliamentary majority.

The opposition centre-right National Party, currently on 27%, has admitted defeat in Saturday's poll.

The vote was originally due to be in September, but was postponed by a month after a renewed Covid-19 outbreak.

I was reading an article the other day that pointed out that as much as she's been exemplary in most ways, she hasn't actually delivered on her major election promises. The author was hoping that if she got an outright majority rather than had to rely on a more right-wing coalition partner, we'd see her more transformative agenda start to come out.

We shall see.

So rewarded for doing stuff a leader is supposed to in a national emergency. We can only dream.
