The incredible, telling difference between Ardern and Morrison .
It is in the two prime ministers' one similarity - the tragedies and hardship - where we see their greatest and most profound differences. The last few days in each country says it all.In some respects, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern are very similar. They were both elected to their positions as leaders of their respective parties not too long before general elections.

They grew up as Christians. They are both white.
