While Ardern denies the mass of misogynistic vitriol levelled at her weighed into her decision, it was prolific – not that the National leader would acknowledge that on Friday morning.He told RNZ it was about politics, not personality.Asked if is it different for women, Luxon said: “I’m not sure about that. You’ve seen other countries around the world where you get this just deep polarisation of political views.”Dr Suze Wilson, a senior lecturer at Massey University’s School of Management, said: “He should know better”.”He’s talked about being a role model in his own conduct. He could role model being a support for women and challenging and calling out that behaviour and saying it’s not okay.”Mere hours later Luxon walked back his comments.
