Prime Minister John Key says he is “totally relaxed” about former Solid Energy chief executive Don Elder appearing before a select committee, but the decision was one for the committee and the board of the state-owned coalminer.
“If he wants to go and they want him to go he is not going to get any opposition from my office,” Mr Key said today.
Totally relaxed is a step up from relaxed. This got me wondering on Twitter yesterday if we need a formal scale to measure the PM’s relaxed level. It could be:
- 1 – Fairly Relaxed
- 2 – Pretty Relaxed
- 3 – Reasonably Relaxed
- 4 – Relaxed
- 5 – Very Relaxed
- 6 – Totally Relaxed
- 7 – 100% Relaxed
So totally relaxed is pretty high up the (now) official relaxed scale.
