A week or so back Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta issued a warning to Putin re invading the Ukraine. I’ve waited to see if it worked. Well, it certainly appears to have done as ever since the Russians have issued appeasement noises.
Putin suffers from short man syndrome and likes to posture stripped to the waist as a tough guy. But who would you back in a brawl between him and Mahuta who let’s face it, would massively outweigh him by at least 300lbs? It would be an outrageous mismatch.
Mind you, Putin is hardly alone with his terror at the prospect. Nanaia would be a huge favourite for a quick KO victory if she took on Putin “aided” by a doubtless sobbing Trudeau, plus Boris, if all three were in the ring at once as a tag team against her. And for that matter you could chuck in the North Korean garbage plus Scott Morrison who’d try to talk his way out of it, plus numerous other purported world leaders.
Nania should issue a few more warnings here and there. If the Putin result is any guide, she could be in line for the Nobel Peace Prize.
