Is Jacinda Ardern a smiling assassin or a wimp unable to make the big calls?

The Prime Minister unveiled her first ministerial reshuffle last week, with the biggest change the splitting of the housing portfolio role between three ministers.

Kris Faafoi got the biggest promotion, moving into Cabinet and picking up one third of the new housing roles, while Phil Twyford lost control of KiwiBuild but picked up the Economic Development portfolio. 

The move for Twyford led to split reaction from political commentators, with some saying Ardern was too soft while others praising the move.

Saturday Mornings and Q+A host Jack Tame joined the Weekend Collective to discuss the reshuffle, and he went straight down the middle.
