honestly is that the world
is bloody messy
Adapted from this quote:
“The honest reality is that the world is bloody messy. And yet, amongst all the complexity, we still often see issues portrayed in a black and white way. We must not allow the risk of a self-fulfilling prophecy to become an inevitable outcome for our region.“
From a speech to foreign policy think tank the Lowy Institute in Sydney, by the New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern.
Ms. Ardern displays once again her ability to sum up things succulently and still make an understatement.
