New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has rejected a “bribe” from an 11-year-old girl who wrote asking the government to conduct dragon research, her office confirmed on Tuesday.

The girl, identified as Victoria, wanted to be given telekinetic powers so she could become a dragon trainer .Writing back on official letterhead, Ardern said: “We were very interested to hear your suggestions about psychics and dragons, but unfortunately we are not currently doing any work in either of these areas.

“I am therefore returning your bribe money, and I wish you all the very best in your quest for telekinesis, telepathy and dragons.”In a handwritten note, Ardern added: “P.S. I’ll still keep an eye out for those dragons. Do they wear suits?”Explaining the niche request, the girl’s brother said her interest in telepathy comes from the Netflix sci-fi series “Stranger Things”, which features telepathy and telekinesis - the power to move things using one’s mind.
