    “Listen hear you lot – we know where you live, who you live with, where your kids go to school, your criminal records, your health problems, your income tax details for the last 10 years, and the phone numbers of your company’s the ten biggest advertisers are on my speed dial. Understood?”

    “Ummmmmmmm. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.”

    “Yeah we thought Garrett vs Cosgrove would make a great telethon event with Mallard vs Henare as the undercard, but Trevor’s got pissed off because he wants to be the main event and locked himself in the mens room. Bill said he could fill in but I told him that’s a definate no after his last piss poor showing at Fight for Life, and anyway Tau said fighting Bill would not be a good look and I agree with him. Tau reckons he could take Darren Hughes but I’ve yet to formally ask him but I have cautioned Tau to not be too cocky since I know redheads can be bloody unpredictable when they’re angry. Paula said she wants to give Annette a good smack in the chops and I said I’ll think about it. Anyway it’s all for a good cause and I’m gonna donate a ham.”

  11. Rex Widerstrom 11

    “Well goooooooooooolly!”

    [You have to be of a certain age to get that].

  12. Kirbya 12

    Vidiot, that was awesome and also means I’ve got that song stuck in my head for the weekend.

  13. Chris G 13

    “Following the success of similar methods in isolation units at mental hospitals, these pastel coloured Rhododendrons are our new initiative to quell the recent outbreak of Parliamentary violence with particular respect to Mr Garrett. These will be thrown by trained marksmen at Mr Garrett everytime he flares up, the pastel colouration having an almost instantaneous calming effect… We anticipate this to also create 250 jobs so it serves two purposes”

  14. lukas 14

    we’ve infiltrated Chris Carters website and rigged the poll so that all votes go our way and Labour lose in polls on their own websites

  15. Ianmac 15

    I have a dream! Ooooh yes!

  16. Mac1 16

    ‘Jobs worth Jobs worth It’s more than me jobs worth….”

    Suggested by the anti-spam word, ‘Jobs”. Sweet sweet sweet inspiration.

  17. lprent 17

    I’m bored with this press conference.

    I can outdo Obama. I’m going to get that fly with my mouth.

    That should get me a globally viewed YouTube for the cv.

    ( and that is why he looks crosseyed and has his mouth wide open )

  18. Steve 18

    ‘Now that Field has been found guilty, who of the opposition is next?”

  19. ak 19

    A Herald photographer captures the moment when a journalist takes his editor’s instructions a little too literally. With typical style and grace, our handsome PM remained unfazed by the incident: “Look I’m pretty relaxed about this” he said later, “Guyon’s always been right behind my prostate check campaign for victims of the Clark years and I’m sure he was just adding his little thing. It’s not like him to slip up.”

  20. The Voice of Reason 20

    You say they call me Goober?

  21. mike 21

    Oi! Chris you @$%&, come back and finish your press conference..

  22. Sting 22

    Oh Chris, Oh Chris, why do you allow Pinko Pigs to fly away all the time?

  23. Craig Glen Eden 23

    Dipton Dipton He lives in Dipton I tell you!

  24. Guys guys, look at me, this is my Bruno, I can do Bruno, guys, guys

  25. Irascible 25

    Rorts? Rorts? Who’s rorting who? As a money speculator I should be able to recognise a rort shouldn’t I?
    I tell you no one in my cabinet is rorting the taxpayer.

  26. Ed 26

    Look, I am the Decider, and as such entitlements of Ministers are for me to decide, and I can assure you that Bill English pays income tax at the same rate as all other Ministers.

  27. coolas 27

    ‘Hey look – this is how I gave Rodney a blow job’

  28. brownsbayboy 28

    “and still I wonder if carter is the giver or the receiver and who cleans up the sheets afterwards.”

    “All traveling perks for gay politicians should be removed”.

    Now I have a really good idea, instead of people being paid by the state to do nothing why don’t they try getting a “job” so that they get some money for themselves.

    [lprent: read the policy about trolls. I don’t tolerate lazy pricks who dump essentially the same comment across different threads. Learn to write your own opinions or don’t write anything at all (I’m happy to assist you in taking the second option). ]

    • lprent 29.1

      Thanks but no thanks. I really have problems accepting the dishonour that you offer. I could wind up like Paula Bennett, unable to distinguish between how she would like to be treated and how she treats others.

  30. I….. I, have become, comfortably ambitious

  31. George.com 31

    I’ve called this press conference to announce that the government has just found an extra $12,000 to pay for the cycle way.
