Others such as Ben Mack writing for the Washington Post can only see Trumpism and an American framework for our unique antipodean politics. In this article I describe Ardern as more Trudeau than Corbyn, and in less hyperbolic terms than Mack describe Labour’s concerning rightward immigration gambit.
