I presume Jacinda Ardern as opposition spokesperson for justice at the time was one of these 41%.
Steve Braunias wrote 100 pages describing the innocence of Mark Lundy in his "The scene of the crime" book and later skipped across Molesworth Street to lunch with Jacinda Ardern during the appeal hearing he was attending in 2017.
Helen Winkelmann as appeal court judge then conveniently declared she was sure Mark Lundy was guilty, then Ardern appointed her chief justice.
This all stinks to high heaven, and needs to be discussed more widely, but you are right to imply vanishingly few care.
