Clueless forgot to pay the bill?

I regret to inform the world that John Keys domain has run out of money and is in the process of expiring (much like this government will eventually do).

This is a pity as http://johnkey.co.nz has probably has the highest hit rate of any of the National party websites.This is because there has been a long-standing google-bomb campaign to associate the word ‘clueless’ with that site. Consequently there are far more links to that site around the net than any of the other moribund national party sites.

There is the pathetic disaster that is the National MPs ‘blog’ site that appears to never allow comments, and where the authors posts appear to largely be about their holidays.

A facebook page that seems to have been colonised by the left since the election.

The number of links that can be seen to the National party main site around the web appear to have dropped right off.

Despite being associated with the word ‘clueless’, John Key should pay to keep his site going as his opposition are helping to keep it active. It is about the only part of the National party that is active online apart from Kiwiblog.

    Umm if the site stays down, then I’ll search for all links that have the associated ‘clueless’ title on this site and divert them to another John Key page.

    Does anyone have suggestions for an appropriate page?

    His National website profile has got to be a contender. http://www.national.org.nz/MP.aspx?Id=28

    Wow, that pic of him is old.

    nah – must have got onto it – the site is back up now.

    I was interested to see that the url used on the slides for Anne Tolley’s National Standards roadshow was the johnkey.co.nz one, not national.org.nz or anything to do with Tolley or the MOE. I guess they see it as their ah, key, site.

    • lprent 5.1

      That is because it probably has the most hits after rockys wee prank. I tend to make any reference to John Key link there with the appropriate title tag.

      It also allows comments, albeit heavily censored to only allow fawning patsy comments. Most of the National sites don’t even have that.

      • BLiP 5.1.1

        Also removes the Education Ministry from any involvement in the consultation process with the public and facilitates the control of information – can’t have those pesky public servants having access to the real feedback. They might leak it :smile:

    The really interesting page is the National Party facebook page which is run by Slater and still has abuse all over it. I’ve taken a screen-shot.
