It's been a week to forget for Jacinda Ardern, with the Prime Minister burning through her political capital, according to Newstalk ZB's Political Editor Barry Soper.

Auckland businesses are struggling to stay alive, after being placed in level 3 restrictions, despite no new community cases of Covid-19 in the city.

Wrapping the political week with Heather du Plessis-Allan, Barry Soper asked the question - what has happened to Jacinda Ardern's kindness?

"Having preached about being kind to each other for over a year, the Prime Minister should start practising what she's been preaching, because she's showing no kindness to businesses who have been locked down unnecessarily. 

"It's nothing short of disgraceful."
