In July 2015, when she was a popular Opposition MP who regularly appeared in the media, we put her on the cover in a fun polkadot dress with the line ‘Why she’s the Prime Minister in waiting’. Yep, we called it, way back then. (I’ve heard through the journalist grapevine that this made for a slightly awkward moment for Jacinda when it arrived at the Labour Party office.) She next appeared on the cover of our July 2017 issue, when she was the deputy leader of the Labour Party.
