In a shocking turn of events, it appears national treasure and quirky dancer Lorde has been taken into custody by the Supreme Leader for not turning up to school 8 years ago.
In a retrospective execution of justice fairly typical among totalitarian regimes, Ardern has decided to make an example of the Grammy Award winning artist, and BFF of Tay-Tay, by throwing her into a Devonport gulag for not sticking around to learn about how bad capitalists are.
“Well, look, she quit school and left the fold” said our Supreme Leader.
“Who knows what kind of things she heard or saw over there”.
“It’s just better for the collective if she’s not allowed to do that again, so we made arrangements” said Ardern.
