‘Jacinda and a terrible orange’ artwork up for grabs on Trade Me

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

A sketch of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern holding a “terrible orange” drawn in an unflattering resemblance of US President Donald Trump is selling on Trade Me.

The original artwork was made by a New Zealand artist using a graphite pencil and watercolours.

"The artwork is signed and dated on the back and framed in a 18" x 24" Rimu frame with a white mat border," it states on the auction.

The auction closes on Sunday, and the current bid is $177. The reserve price has not been met yet.

The artwork is titled “Jacinda and a terrible orange”.

We Say, You Say: Auckland Uni Exams

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

Auckland uni students have spoken out against on-campus exams this year as their overseas counterparts will be able to check notes while they will not be able to.

Those international and domestic students remaining in New Zealand will be completing their exams under supervised conditions. A university email obtained by Stuff showed that overseas students will also be given a 30 minute grace period, in case of any technical faults, with this time able to be used towards the final exam.

Do you think this is fair?
