New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern suddenly resigns; how “free shipping” from Chinese companies is actually paid by Westerners

(a) “ Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)

The “woke left’s poster child” as Andrew Bolt calls her below — New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern — suddenly resigned ahead of the elections, saying “she didn’t have enough in the tank” for another 4 years of disastrous misgovernment.

But on the same channel, Bernardi suspects there is more going on than meets the eye — more than an expected drubbing at the ballot box.

Lots of coverage in the Telegraph: let me just single out Fraser Nelson: “St. Jacinda’s global cheerleaders can’t acknowledge the truth about her fall” (paywalled; cached copy).

(b) Ever wondered how Chinese companies can not only sell you trendy but crummy products for cheap, but ship them to you for free? Winston Sterzel explains below:

It isn’t enough that China has suborned every international organization it can, but it is simultaneously a “developed country” where that status suits it, and a “developing country” where that status gives it an advantage — such as (in this case) international postage fees, which are kept artificially very low for developing countries by making the rich countries subsidize them.

It’s turtles (and turtle-“lovers”) all the way down…

Bonus item (h/t: littleoldlady):

ADDENDUM: for anyone who believes that only Israeli leftists have a problem with the serial crook and influence peddler Aryeh Deri serving as a minister, read this article from a right-wing religious perspective: Go Away: Arye Deri should quit Israeli politics forever and go home.
