Look at this gob smacking and astonishing statement from Jacinda Ardern about who she thinks should or shouldn’t be using utes:

But Ardern confirmed she’s ruling out exemptions for utes. 

“We did discuss that because we recognised that there is a lag in the technology right now. But after discussing it, debating it and working it through, it was going to be very difficult to operationalise,” she said. 

“A large number of those buyers of those vehicles are not using them for the legitimate use as those who work in the primary sector and the trades.”


Does this imbecile even know what legitimate means?

Or is she signalling that the government is planning on creating an army of jobsworths with clipboards who will search vehicle registers for ute owners to inspect and see if their use of a ute is “legitimate”?

She’s now assuming that my use of a ute isn’t “legitimate”.

Here’s a question for her, is Clarke’s ownership and use of a ute to tow his boat “legitimate”?

Clarke Gayford’s Fish of the Day ute and boat

I won’t hold my breath waiting for her sanctimonious reply.

Is this “legitimate” use of a ute?
