Spot the stunning lack of self awareness:

The discussion which follows is pretty brutal for Key.

So, pulling ponytails and calling people names – I guess it’s true, the PM is 11 years old (a treat if you missed it last month!).

I liked Little’s reply:

    He has a new name, Gwynkey! (in that twitter link). 😀

    Is that Little quote from last year when Key first used Angry Andy? It’s very good.

      I think this one is pretty appropriate for the National gov

      You work and work for years and years, you’re always on the go
      You never take a minute off, too busy makin’ dough
      Someday you say, you’ll have your fun, when you’re a millionaire
      Imagine all the fun you’ll have in your old rockin’ chair

      Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
      Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
      The years go by, as quickly as a wink
      Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think

      You’re gonna take that ocean trip, no matter come what may
      You’ve got your reservations made, but you just can’t get away
      Next year for sure, you’ll see the world, you’ll really get around
      But how far can you travel when you’re six feet underground?

    Joan Armatrading did a great track with the words “I love it when you call me names”

    Hey Mr Key – please keep being yourself – call people names, pull girls hair

    Hang on.

    When Key says Andrew has been “calling people names”, what the fuck is he talking about?

    • Tracey 5.1

      I was thinking the same thing…

      It’s like people say Giovanni is “stalking” Cactus Kate cos he is trying to find out where her blog archives went.

    • weka 5.2

      Where did Key actually say that? If you google the quote in the first tweet, it only gets hits that are that tweet.

    • whateva next? 5.3

      Yep, I haven’t heard Andrew calling Tugger Key names at all.

  5. Ed 6

    “Pulling ponytails” and excuses of childishness, while amusing, are at least in part spin worthy of C-T. Tugging is still making light of his actions, but to be truthful we need to talk of unwanted and unwelcome stroking and fondling. Generosity has its place, but the denials and lying about his actions make it important to be truthful – on the evidence we have seen, Key is a serial abuser with a hair fetish.

    “He’s going to have to do a lot more than calling people names and being angry Andrew” – John Key
    Sooo, Matt McLean says Andrew is proud of his passion (yes, passion, not anger) and Rutherford says , Andrew (?) is showing a breathtaking lack of awareness?? excuse me, I sincerely hope I have misread that, and he means Key…after all, just take a look at Rutherford’s comment again
    “…calling people names.. ”
    “…….angry Andrew”
    Am I missing something? or is Rutherford?

    • whateva next? 7.1

      Yes, I think I did get that really wrong, and Rutherford did mean Key, and that it was Key who was proud of his latest little mantra. apologies to Rutherford

  7. SHG 8

    “Passionate about New Zealand”


    • locus 8.1

      Why are right wing conservatives always so condescending about people who care about a better fairer kinder society?

  8. Realblue 9

    You assume that’s what angry Andy wants. its just noise.

  9. North 10

    As, clearly, are you RealBlue, a more authentic example of troubled ‘noyschh’ indeed. Your boy’s on his way out lad. Sit with it. Superior folk do not like ‘gauche’. Who you gonna adulate then ? Simon Bridges ? Judge Judy ? By the way…….anyone seen or heard of Fisi lately ?

  10. Reddelusion 11

    Little has no chance, he does not appear overly intelligent , walking slogan, no ideas , no presence, union lap dog, party that operates in the past, serves nutty interest groups, tied to the greens, all negative None of this will change in 2017 30 years of blue I reckon

    [lprent: you appear to be trolling. I suggest you desist. ]

  11. Dale 12

    Dose anyone here honestly believe that Little will be prime minister? He might be only if his supporters grow up.

    • lprent 12.1

      Does anyone believe that the Parnell panty pony puller is the PM?

      I am sure that Dale wants to be just like him….

  12. Dale 13

    And my point. Name calling. Just goes to show the voters are more mature than take them for. So keep it up and enjoy the opposition benches.
