Heh

March 22nd, 2012 at 3:00 pm by David Farrar

Transtasman reports:

likes to find different ways to end his post-cabinet press conference so he doesn’t always have to say “that’s it then” and he was inspired recently when the final question was about fracking, the oil exploration technique which upsets the Greens so much. After answering it he collected his papers and departed with the quip “time to frack off, then”

Heh, he must be a closest Battlestar Galactica fan. I actually giggle everytime an MP gets up in the House and talks about fracking.

For those interested, the use of the term “frack” was not unique to the reimagined BSG series, but was used in the original series, as you can see above.

    Ah… I wondered what Key said to Nick after he handed in his resignaton.

    The office of PM should have more dignity that this.

    Key is in my humble opinion just a silly little liberal, professing to offer something different to Labour, but in his heart, he’s just another lefty.

    Comments like this show he just doesn’t get it.

    He scorns the left across the parliamentary chamber, but when he leaves it, goes out and does exactly as they do.

    Red – you do write piss – get back to the Standard, that’s where you belong, along with the other unintelligencers.
    The Standard is fun to bait as such, as you rise to the occasion, and have no real idea when you are being taken.
