    It was disappointing to hear the PM tell the crowd “please give us more time” on this issue. Climate change action is urgently needed and this would be the logical first step. More time is not needed to stop the issue of new exploration permits. Do it now.

    It is understandable that “more time” is needed to deploy appropriate actions to stop the use of already-existing exploration permits. The contract issues need to be worked through. But the Government needs to make it clear to the drilling companies that NZ will not be supporting the development of facilities to utilise any gas or oil found. Continue drilling if you like, but you are wasting money.

    If Jacinda and Phil Twyford were serious about climate change during their first 100 days then they should have kept Wellington’s trolley buses! But Wellington is not a marginal seat so they don’t care. Actions speak louder than ‘hot air’ words.

    A naive and disgraceful performance by Jacinda – snubbing the visiting president of a nation of 250 million people, in favour of a petition signed by less than 1% of the NZ population. I hope Winston took her aside and explained a bit how the world works.
