Very interesting observations by Transtasman on Dr Cullen dealing with John Key. To quote them:
Much of the economic debate across Parliament’s chamber is still conducted between Finance Minister Michael Cullen and National’s leader, John Key, rather than between Cullen and his National counterpart, Bill English. It has been fascinating to watch, because there is something about Key which really gets under Cullen’s skin. Usually the Finance Minister can be relied upon to be witty and nasty, but most of the time has a sort of inbuilt acidity regulator which keeps the nastiness under control. When he gets stuck into Key, though, it is pure bile and very little wit, such as describing him as a “working class scab” when he became leader.
and later on:
Part of the bile could be just frustration. Labour has not yet worked out how to deal with Key. They played the envy card hard initially, emphasising the National leader’s wealth. This appealed to Labour’s visceral supporters, but made little dent on other voters. There must be a Plan B coming somewhere.
Oh there will be a Plan C, Plan D, Plan E I am sure.No tag for this post.
