'Unacceptable In 2017,' NZ Labour Leader Asked About Having Kids

Less than two months before a general election, New Zealand's Labour Party leader Andrew Little has resigned, admitting that the opposition party had failed to get its message across.

And she promptly told Richardson, one of the show's hosts, he'd gone too far.

"I think a lot of women face this dilemma in the workplace no matter what their professional job might be.they face this issue all the time, I am not on my own there".

The repeated questioning of Ms Ardern on the subject has sparked outrage among many who point out that male politicians are rarely asked their parenthood plans.

The NZ news and culture website The Spin Off chronicled the new Opposition Leader's first day in the job under the headline: "An incomplete account of the sexism in Jacinda Ardern's first 24 hours as Labour leader".

The change in Labour leadership appears to have won over the Maori Party.

Greens' co-leader James Shaw says she shouldn't have been asked the question.

"You've just got to take every day as it comes and try and see if you can make the best of the lot you're given".

"It's the 21st century; no one has ever asked me that and I wouldn't expect them to ask that of any Member of Parliament, whether they're a man or woman", he continued.

"So I'm not pre-determining any of that, just like most of the women out here who just make their lives work".

Current Prime Minister Bill English has six children. I was just saying to someone this morning when I was watching that Mark Richardson clip - she's always been like that.

While the Nationals have sought to portray her as inexperienced and untested, Ms Ardern's unique background has generated much-needed media attention for a party struggling in the polls.

However, "Labour and National both need to decide what kind of government they want to be", she says.

Blowing out candles on cake increases bacteria
He argued that if birthday cakes significantly contributed to spread deadly disease, it would've already been discouraged by now. So if you know the person who is blowing out the candles is unwell, it's an obvious choice to avoid eating the cake.

Ms Ardern, who is dating media personality Clarke Gayford but does not have any children, pointed her finger at Richardson as she flatly rejected his reasoning. And definitely not as Prime Minister.
