    Well, admittedly I cannot compete with Key’s Oxford dictionary, so the Collins edition will have to do. The word “gay” is defined in several ways, but these do include the following: “rakish or dissolute; licentious; homosexual”. I wonder if Key took the trouble to actually look up the word in the Oxford edition? All he says is that it is IN the Oxford dictionary. No elaboration.

    What an utter cock!

  3. Jim Nald 3

    And as disclosed at a previous press conference, one that shoots blanks.

    Is that John Pagani in the thumbnail pic?

    Is Key an enterntainer that can’t even get his lines right.  He is now stating that “categorically” he did not say the “thick as bats**t words.  Although he left open that he said something similar.

    • CnrJoe 5.1

      i believe he’s saying he didn’t say ‘thick as pigshit’ – not the batshit line he did use according to a tweet by Selwyn Manning

    Not to be distracted by pesky things like a faux resignation and homicide in a workplace…

    Key’s line on Beckham is now well into Bizarro territory.

    He didn’t say it, but he waited five days while the world’s media said that he said it? Not a squeak, not a single word to counter the global news story? Until today? Long after his – and his country’s – name has been put in the Hall of Clown Fame.

    He either just told a bare-faced whopper to Parliament (not the first time), or he has spent five days in a lather of indecision. So as usual, we’re left with the Three Keys – choose your favourite …

    A liar? A doddery amnesiac? Or an incompetent.

    (of course, these are not mutually exclusive …)

      option d: he a youtube video shot by one of the kids has him saying what might be “badshit”, not “batshit”. This is enough for him to issue a categorical denial: while that’s what he meant to say, the ekshool wuds he pronounciated were categorically not what he intended.

    I never found David Brent funny. I never found Key funny.
    Both are over-rated.
    Neither will be remembered in a positive way in a few years. 
    They are very alike.  
    A good post.

    Thing is David Brent is neither nominally, nor officially in charge of a small nation state.
    And the jury remains out on ShonKey re the same. Too many New Zealanders are ok with a sub Peter Sellers impersonator for a “leader” because it stops their heads hurting or serves their interests.

    But as Traveller Ev comments here the PM is actually not a total mincing, language mangling clown, he has got the tax take way down (slashed the social wage), is going hell for leather towards a TPP and has generally shifted wealth upstairs to the 1%ers. So in essence a scabrous comprador capitalist from the finance capital sector. The joke is well over.

    At least he’s not boring.

    Does Shearer have a sense of humour ?

    • scotty 11.1

      oh hes boring alright Kea ,
      boring as bat shit.

    • fender 11.2

      You are easily pleased kea, with a sense of humour (as lame as Key has) seemingly being such an important trait for PM there must be plenty of potential leaders amongst the failed comedian community. The sense of humour Key seems to possess is on a par with that of other dickheads like Paul Henry. If it’s so important to have a PM with humour in abundance why not promote a genuinely funny person like Rhys Darby, Dai Henwood, Bret McKenzie, Jemaine Clement or one of the many other skilled comedians around?

      Shearer may seem a bit drab at times but Key is a total bore all the time and has failed to make me laugh even once, although I must confess to being (outrageously) amused watching him lie with great skill.

  12. Lloyd 12

    Have you heard the one about the thick shit with only one quarter of David Beckham’s wealth who kicked his country into economic touch after he was passed a good ball?

    I don’t think I quite got the timing right here….
