    and now watch my drive

  2. Paul 2

    Too busy for interviews about the economy.

  3. Tony P 3

    Joking aside is he actually taking the piss out of the flag in preference to the other option by wearing and seemingly laughing about it. Seems the onlookers are in on the joke too.

  4. fender 4

    I’ve just been fooling around with you all, this is really the flag I support. Farrer has told me so.

  5. Macro 5

    Can it get any worse?
    What a fool we have for a Prime Minister.

    • NZJester 5.1

      I don’t think John Key has the wit to be the fool.

    • swordfish 5.2

      Key’s confused look in the second shot suggests he’s entirely lost the plot. Half-way through the joke and he’s forgotten where he’s going with it. Looks deeply disoriented.

      Almost as if he’s just experienced a cathartic insight in the middle of the joke that: “actually, shit, I’m a bit of a dickhead, aren’t I ? And these people are laughing at me rather than with me”

  6. joe90 6

    Separated at birth.

  7. NZJester 7

    Watch my magic trick as I try and make this flag disappear and be replaced by a dish cloth.

  8. maui 8

    Womans Day exclusive: Attention seeking man lived double life for years impersonating Lydia Ko, never believing he would be found out.

  9. Sutton's li'l helper 9

    Curia polls just in – majority want to keep the current flag

  10. Paul 10

    A picture of privilege.

  11. fender 12

    Shane Plunket gave me his old shirt, it no longer fits him.

  12. Mike C 13

    “THIS IS MY GOLF PARTNER RICKY PONTINGS FLAG … I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL NOTICE THAT IT’S THE AUSSIE FLAG WHEN THEY SEE THIS PHOTO ???”

  13. Stuart Munro 14

    Key modelling his funerary garment.

  14. miravox 15

    Hypocrite

  15. Tautoko Mangō Mata 16

    “They haven’t thought about the fact that I’ll be a shoe-in for a knighthood when Liz sees this photo!”

  16. Irascible 17

    Hey guys!! See I really, really am a practising hypocrite especially when I’m poll dancing!!!

  17. locus 18

  18. locus 19

  29. MikeG 30

    *beat

  30. ropata 31

    Interesting that nobody is standing close to the PM.

    Is it because
    a) he is approx. 4 feet tall and CT has advised him to only stand near hobbits?
    b) his incorrigible penchant for pulling the hair of strangers?
    c) nobody wants to be booed by association with NZ’s biggest dickhead?

  31. b waghorn 32

    Aaggh the shroud for my political career has arrived.
