Quote of the Week

October 27th, 2012 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

Mountain Scene reports:

Prime Minister uncut in Queenstown

On Kim Dotcom: “That bloke might have Megaupload.com but I’ve got Megaballsup.com. Anyway, it’s great to be here at The Hills. Frankly, after the week I’ve had it’s great to be anywhere other than Wellington.”

Heh. The domain is available for registration.

On the Labour Party: “We’re here to do the opening of the sculpture, The Wolves are Coming. It sounds like the Labour Party.”

On Sir Michael Hill giving him a red ribbon to cut: “I didn’t give [you] a knighthood to be voting Labour, Michael.”

On Deputy Prime Minister Bill English: “He is the shareholding Minister of Air New Zealand which is the airline that failed to get me here.” [Key’s plane was diverted to Dunedin.]

That’s taking ministerial responsibility to a new level!

    It’s the Nats who need to be the wolves…….to strip state spending and structures to the bone.Alas the Nats are lapdogs to an entitled electorate and their racists parliamentary “partners”.

    Pity John Key wasn’t as keen on fixing the country as he is on being popular.

    I often see folks on this site (rightly) bemoaning the National Party’s ineffectiveness in terms of policy and direction, and their capitulation to raced based separatism. The reason for this is simple: In general, National Party politicians are only there to enrich themselves and their friends. On the opposite side of the chamber, Labour and the Greens are driven by a cabal of sexual eccentrics hell bent on stuffing their social pathologies down the throats of the entire populace. None of them are there to serve their country, they are there to serve themselves. It’s no more complicated than that.

    If only the vacuous Smile & Wave would apply the same enthusiasm to the real task of leading New Zealand.
    Alas, it’s too difficult.

    Hard to decide who you would invite to a piss-up if you were one short really.

    John, David, other David, Helen, not Bill!

    Fuck that was easy after all! :)

    What kowtow said.

    Lining himself up for a knighthood and the UN cocktail circuit?

    Wonderful comments from good PM –

    Could you imagine H Clark being frivolous in any way ? or David somebody from Labour – not sure which one though.

    Keep it up Key the NZ public like a down to earth laugh.

    I prefer John’s sense of humour to David Lange’s.

    Although it’s a bit pedestrian and RSA, he’s just having a laugh whereas Lange’s wit was so sharp you didn’t want to be on the receiving end of it, like Muldoon. So you’d laugh, but nervously.

    There was always a kid like that who everyone was scared of at school because you knew they could destroy you in one sentence.

    It is really good that the PM’s so approachable and funny, pity he’s not also leading worthwhile government.

    Eventually that’ll matter I hope.

    Incidentally, I met a family on the weekend who’d just moved to Sydney from NZ to improve their prospects. I cousin and his wife and two kids are moving to Sydney in January. It should be worrying that NZ exports talent it paid to develop.
