Jacinda Ardern and the leader of the opposition party, whom she called “an arrogant bastard” just two days ago, signed a copy of the official parliamentary act and will sell it for charity.

The New Zealand prime minister was caught whispering the insult under her breath about David Seymour, leader of the ACT Party, into a microphone as she sat down after answering her questions in parliament on Tuesday.

But the Conservative MP says the couple on opposite sides of the political spectrum have since reconciled and both can see the funny side of the tense moment.

‘After laughing about it, Jacinda Ardern and I are going to auction off a signed copy of the Hansard (official record) of her calling me an ‘arrogant p****’ to raise money for jerks everywhere, a great cause, Prostate Cancer Foundation,” Seymour posted on Twitter.

Bidding on the quirky piece of New Zealand political history will close at 11:05am on December 22nd and the main bid is currently on $29,500 – from Thursday 19 pm.

It comes as public support for Ms Ardern has plummeted in recent months with her approval rating now at its lowest level since she took office more than five years ago.

The Kiwi leader lost her temper after Seymour hit her with a series of questions in the New Zealand parliament, including one blatantly provocative question.

Mr Seymour asked: “Can the Prime Minister give an example of her making a mistake, apologizing for it properly and making it right?”

The question drew a clearly annoyed response from Ms. Ardern shortly before she muttered the insult.

“We have always made decisions that we thought were in the best interest of New Zealand at the time,” Ms Ardern said, later adding: “What an arrogant jerk,” she could be heard saying.

Most of the household members did not notice the slur, but picked it up on the recordings, forcing Ardern to apologize.

He texted Mr. Seymour to apologize.

“I apologize, it’s not something I should have said,” the text is understood to have said.

She also added: “As my mother would say, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it.”

Seymour said he accepted the apology and wished Ardern a Merry Christmas.

He later used the slur as a springboard to hit Ms Ardern again in a media interview.

“Some days I’m a useless Maori, other days I’m an arrogant p****,” he said.

“The apology we’re really looking for is for New Zealanders concerned about rising prices and ram attacks.”

He also asked Spokesman Adrian Rurawhe to instruct Ms Ardern to withdraw her comment and apologize.

He refused, saying he would have to check Hansard’s official record of the proceedings.

Support for Ardern plummeted in a recent poll, showing that he posted his lowest approval rating since he took office in 2017.

Labor’s popularity fell to 33 percent, while Nationals rose to 38 percent.

Seymour has been the leader of the ACT Party since 2014.

The Party won 7.6 percent of the vote and 10 seats in the 2020 New Zealand election.
