    “Sharples has the ear of the Prime Minister in a way that other MPs don’t.”

    Yeah well, Key obviously knows who to listen to.

    meaning of course that Pita Sharples’ people (or the 9th floor people) have organised their PR to prepare a “feature article”

    I guess without reading it it will have large Photo and cover 2/3 of the page or more. It will use words like

    influential
    mana
    gravitas
    approacheable
    statesmanlike
    keen sense of humour
    family
    responsible

    yup cutting edge and insightful journalism at its finest. I will now go and read the article and give myself 10 points for every time the key words that his PR people are trying to leave us with are mentioned.

    my goodness they are good. Never would have expected him to be sexy and earning his spurs fighting racism (rather than advocating it) by supporting poms!

    That is industrial grade PR. First class work.

    I feel all warm and fuzzy about access to services based on the colour of my skin now.

    after a while I started to warm to the guy , thought he was ok , maybe someone to watch…then he opened his mouth and started spouting on about free access for mouldy into university…now I think he’s a racist shit stirring radical , same ilk as syd jackson , moana jackson , annette sykes et al…
