Owen Glenn is the Denny Crane of this whole situation – he’s rich, people have been calling him crazy etc but when it came to a head he knew exactly what to say for maximum effect.
The only thing it’s missing is an Alan Shore – someone who can eloquently attack Winston et al in a convincing way that leaves the public in no doubt that they’re crooks. Bill English ain’t it, neither are Key or Brownlee, even Rodney Hide can’t pull it off. No politician on the right has the oratorical skills to do the job properly.
The person we need right now is … Winston Peters! If the old Winnie was here he’d tear the current Winnie a new one. He’d get the whole country behind his righteous anger and Winston and Labour would be toast.
Absolutely right gazzaj – Key on Breakfast this morning was nowhere near as forthright as he should have been – he even said NZ First have done “nothing illegal” – wtf are the police investigating then?? I was gobsmacked to hear him say that.
I kept imagining Muldoon in the seat and how aggressive he would have been and how strongly he would have taken to the Labour party on this issue.
Key is too much the nice guy – prepared to give a quarter when none should be given.
