A Millennial MP Just Said OK Boomer In NZ Parliament And This Is Politics We Can Get Around

Sometimes you just need to whip out a bit of cheeky generational banter.

MP Chlöe Swarbrick made Millennials around the world proud in the way she dealt with being interrupted by an older male MP during her speech on climate change. She pulled out the ‘OK Boomer’ phrase that has swept the internet lately and, well, it worked.

Swarbrick’s speech was part of discussions on NZ’s new Zero Carbon Bill that aims to get the country’s emissions down to zero by 2050. The leader of the Green Party, James Shaw, attempting to hide his giggle really is all of us after witnessing her clapback. She continued her impassioned speech on climate action without missing a beat.

The funniest part about her use of the phrase was how NZ Parliament TV misquoted her – the subtitles came up as ‘ok berma’. They clearly haven’t got any Millennials on the editing team. Welcome to generation ‘baby berma’ folks.

Twitter is kinda divided (you can guess between who) but here are our fave Millennial responses:
