An online petition calling for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to resign has now more than 50,000 signatures.
The petition, started by Blair Jones, is available at Change.org, and had 51,812 signatures at the time of writing. If 75,000 signatures are reached, the petition becomes one of the most popular ever on Change.org.
The number of signatures is remarkable given the fact the petition has received little to no publicity. By comparison the marketing spend for ‘Super Saturday’ vaxathon last week was a $30,000 cost to the taxpayer per vaccine recipient. Even with that massive spend, and other coercive techniques, the event was well below the 150,000 vaccination target.
Jones sets out the purpose of the petition as follows:
Enough is enough…
The constant and blatant Abuse of Powers by the current Prime Minister and her government has gone too far.
From False Promises during election time, to causing Racial Divide in our country, the current Prime Minister and her government are steering all of us in a direction which is Dangerous to our Freedoms!
He goes on:
The amount of Rushed Laws and changes that this Prime Minister and her government have pushed through during this State of Fear from Covid is truly alarming and worrying to say the least, but i fear the worst is still to come! A slow and gradual Permanent Change is always easier to carry out than a Quick and Forced one…think about the bigger picture here, look at what has been done in the last couple of years and gain awareness as to what direction we are being taken in as a country. Lets Do Something About It!!!
