    One last thought: Other places are calling her the youngest PM ever. We say 160 years, suggesting that there was somebody younger way back in the day.
    A quick look at Wikipedia shows a long line of old-looking white guys, but I don’t have time to do the math. Is she youngest ever?

      160 years ago there was another prime minister who was the same age but slightly younger. so we are correct

        If it was the youngest prime minster in the world then yes, – we refer to her being NZ’s youngest.

    Just noticed that her name is rendered “Ardern” in head and lead, and “Adern” in several other places.

    Hi, is there a way to avoid the “leader/lead” echo in the headline? And are we following AP style, which would render “Labour” as “Labor”?

      Aha. Great point. Do you want to take a stab at changing headline?

        I’ll write it if you can plug it in:

        New Zealand’s new prime minister marks first shift to the left in a decade

        or something like that

          I would suggest that ‘Labour’ is correct as it is a proper noun rather than a noun. It’s the name of the party. The headline is done for SEO reasons but I’ll amend to accommodate your thoughts Pete.

    Love the writing. Wish we had a bit more context // quote from an expert. How are the papers playing it in NZ? Any headlines or columnists weighing in?
