Preggers PM

   Thread Started January 18 at 9:08PM

Our new(ish) Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern has just announced that she is pregnant!

Anyone ever heard of a pregnant PM before. NZ is good at being the first in stuff e.g. first to give women the vote.

Baby is due in June.

A pregnant PM? That's nothing!

Our PM has had a cow, on more than one occasion!


(P.S. Good for Jacinda. Want to swap?)

Well, neither of our female PMs got pregnant whilst in office, but we did have a pregnant PM's wife once.

Indhira Ghandi might have been pregnant whilst in office.

Well we don't have a PM, and our president is too darn old to even consider having a little one...but a little lady or a little man is always welcome anywhere...LOL

I believe Benazir Bhutto gave birth while PM of Pakistan. Of course she was later assassinated, so let's hope that's not a bad omen.

Jacinda Ardern will take 6 weeks maternity leave, handing over the reins to her deputy. Since Parliament makes no real provision for maternity leave, she will continue receiving her full salary. She has announced that she will therefore donate a corresponding proportion of her pay to Plunket, a longstanding organisation here for the benefit of infants and the welfare of new mothers.

   

A book by our own Alec Gould.

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
