Enjoy

May 15th, 2014 at 7:42 pm by David Farrar

Very enjoyable rarking up by the PM. To be fair, here’s the Leader of the Opposition also.

A bit of a contrast.

    When a Government gets to produce a budget like that, compared to the grim realities Australians are facing after the devastation brought upon them by Labor and the Greens (and a few independents) I think Key is entitled to have a bit of fun. Cunliffe would take us to where Australia has just been, and at the prospect of that, little wonder he was down and flat.

    Great speech by the Prime Minister, full of facts, full of emotion and full of prospects for the future. The fact that the PM managed to put the boot into the stinking socialists and the equally stinking Greens just made it all the more enjoyable.

    Great choice on offer – a smart ass show off or a dull dry cardboard cut out.

    Pity we can’t deport both of them – neither possesses the quality leadership this country needs.

    My summary of these two people is that Cunliffe is just unappealing has no charisma and everything is forced.
    Key has no wit, wit is what i enjoy, what key does is just trite wet stuff and the best thing about him is he isnt Cunliffe.

    They should have just put this speech on 3 news in entirety. Forcing the great unwashed watch Keys speech might assist them to understand how good they have it under national.

    The main spin attack on 3 seems to be around immigration and Auckland housing. So people want to move to NZ. Doesn’t this mean we have something the world wants? Also if your young in Auckland buy a friggin apartment. You don’t need a 5 bedroom house on a 1/4 acre

    To go up 140k your rental must be worth over a million bucks well done.
    My house is coming in about that now, its going to suck to upgrade against the communist cash competition though.
    Not sure where the increase in wages are coming from to pay for the increase in house prices.

    What did someone yell out just as Key was starting in on his “santa wish list” talk. He goes “it went a little bit like this…” then it sounds like a woman yells something out, and Key sounds like he responds with a firm “nope” then continues. Anyone know? I can’t make it out from the video, so perhaps someone who might have been there or heard it reported?

    By the way I suppose you live in Auckland too.

    Poor old Cunliffe.

    This man will never be PM and I think he knows it. This was the speech of a drowning man

    I watched the Campbell Live story on him at home, and I think the fish n chip scene spoke volumes. Who wears a jumper over their shoulders like that? Anybody notice the imperious way he told the f&c cooks he’d be back in 15 mins? What about the way he said ‘cheers mate’ to Campbell so hopefully, looking up at him, pleading with The Media not to skewer him?

    I liked his wife immensely but I had to wonder, how does a woman who is obviously so intelligent, hard-working and capable, square away her husband’s various policies which even Joe Average can tell won’t work and will cost too much anyway? She must know it’s bunkum, does she just say, ‘yes dear’ or ‘David don’t be daft!’ We’ll never know.

    Anyway

    Today’s budget = re-election. They’ll drop the cost of rego’s right before the vote I reckon. The public like a little treat, and it’ll be enough to get National over the line and into governing- alone territory.

    Key is definitely a very good performer (in a different league to Cunliffe at this stage).

    Are posters here impressed with what Key’s list of Nationals achievements are after 6 years?

    - Welfare reform
    - Tax changes
    - 90 day probationary period
    - RMA reform
    - Special Housing Areas?
    - A movie being made
    - Tiwai point
    - Irrigation
    - Oil and gas exploration
    - Foreign Investment (does he mean foreign investment in NZ land?)
    - A future free Trade Agreement

    I know I am biased so the Judiths’ of this world can instantly dismiss anything I say as irrelevant, but jeezs Wayne – what a contrast. A vibrant confident speaker in full control of the message/story/narrative – whatever fancy word you wish to use – and a tired, dispirited, soporific non-entity. I mean, really. Actually I thought Russel (2 ss’s, 1 l) gave a much better speech in reply. It just confirms what I have thought all along: National are much more in tune with the vibrant, diverse and energetic New Zealand most of us see each day, while Labour are mired in last century’s failed, forgotten and irrelevant class warfare ideology while the Greens are obsessed with a do-nothing, anti-job and anti-development view of the world. The choice has never been clearer.

    “Sadly despite such a brilliant Budget 47% may not be enough to win.”

    On it’s own it may not be, but then it may not have to be. I would not be surprised to see that jump in the first post-budget polls.

    That said National will need to continue it’s arrangement with ACT, and will likely have to do a similar deal with the Conservatives.

    The other thing that gets lost in the thinking about post election coalitions is the Maori Party. While he has been criticized by some for it, I think Key was wise to build a good working relationship with them. They are generally sensible (as a party) and I think if it comes to the crunch will go with National.

    But He has not yet paid back the $158,000 he stole from Taxpayers, but that is different.

    I just watched Key’s video. Most of the comparisons he listed are pretty damning. How can you sit there as a Labour politician (or Green) and not feel like you make things worse for the people you’re supposed to help?

    And English sitting beside Key was one of the best parts of the video. He couldn’t have looked more relaxed and stress free. It must be nice to go about your job knowing you’re doing it well, and the evidence speaks on behalf of itself.
