My Herald column yesterday:
Today is John Key’s birthday, and as he turns 51 he’ll be reflecting that this has been a good week politically for the Government – something of a rarity this year.
However as Aristotle said in 325BC in his Nicomachean Ethics, “one swallow does not make a summer”. One good week for the Government, is at best a building block. Their challenge is to turn a good week into a good month, and even a good quarter. That is the challenge for their political management.
