Setting sail

Re: 'PM to set sail for Tokelau Islands'. The first NZ Prime Minister to visit Tokelau Islands in 15 years. Who would not want to visit their father, in the beautiful south sea islands of Tokelau?

One might question the appropriateness of Winston Peters, who on the 15th December, 2017, as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, saw fit to appoint Mr Ardern, the Prime Minister's father to the position, Administrator of the Tokelau Islands.

I cast no doubt on Mr Ardern’s suitability for the role but in my opinion this is 'nepotism' that goes unseen and unheralded by the public.
