Judith Collins train wreck interview on Red Radio
The standard of interviewing is of course far below par, but still, Collins should have done much better. She let the silly little commie Susie Fergusson upset her, and she really should have been better prepared.
However its the way Judith handled the interview overall really. With her bluster and that ever present irritating laugh. IMHO Fergusson was within her rights to criticise Judith on this. The leader of the National Party just should be a lot more capable, coherent and self possessed.
A few days ago Collins also initiated an unbecoming Twitter spat with Tova O’Brien over O’Brien’s reporting of a supposed disagreement within the National Party over fluoridation. Shouldn’t this have been handled behind closed doors by a National Press officer rather than on the very public platform of Twitter?
I’m prepared to countenance disagreement with my views on this. Maybe its just me, but I just cannot see the Nats continuing with such an ineffective leader. Collins is just not up to the task.
The whole interview is over 7 minutes. I’ve condensed it down to 3.22 by cutting pauses and repetition. You can find the full version on the RNZ website.
