  2. lprent 2

    Can’t nail that.

    Who’d trust anything from this builder?

  3. philj 3

    Hmmm … nail it or screw it? We’re ffff’d either way. Hmmmm. … I’ve an idea … Bridges! Bridges! Simply brulliant!

  4. bloody useless hammer

  5. les 5

    imagine this is the final nail…in Winstons…coffin!

  6. r0b 6

    Same way we hit all our targets.

  7. r0b 7

    Am I holding the right end?

  8. McFlock 8

    A nice photo-op of me nailing up a placard? Sure. If plebs can do it, how hard can it be?

    Not quite walking the plank, but another nail in the coffin of this government.

  9. wonderpup 9

    The thing about having a B. Com., is that I can manage someone who can actually do things, rather than having to know how to do them myself.

  10. McFlock 10

    Lots of noise, no results. Just how Crosby Textor tell me to run the government.

  11. Clemgeopin 11

    Dear John, you may try to stupidly nail Winston and Andrew, but that is all in vain, because you can’t keep two good strong men down.

    P.S :
    Don’t forget to revisit that hoarding on the eve of march 28 to remove your nails, including the bent ones, to use in further bi-elections during this term!

  12. McFlock 12

    In all seriousness, how did he manage to get the nail in the wood in the first place – was it already nailed in there for him to flail his hammer at it like a wet towel?

  13. I don’t like this hammer can you get me another.

  14. One Anonymous Bloke 14

    Move over, Winston’s brought a nail gun.

  15. Adrian 15

    ” What is this funny looking thing, and what’s that thing in the wood stuff….what ? hit it, this isn’t a proper job…there’s no desk of screens or phone”

  16. r0b 16

    Just pretend its a beneficiary and bash it!

  17. Fee 17

    Every time you see me that Hammer’s just so hype
    I’m dope on the floor and I’m magic on the mic
    Now why would I ever stop doing this
    With others makin’ records that just don’t hit
    I toured around the world from London to the bank
    It’s Hammer go Hammer
    It’s a Hammer yo Hammer and the rest go and play

  18. What I’d like to see a politician singing when wielding a hammer:
    If I had a hammer,
    I’d hammer in the morning
    I’d hammer in the evening,
    All over this land.

    I’d hammer out danger,
    I’d hammer out a warning,
    I’d hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters,
    All over this land.

    If I had a bell,
    I’d ring it in the morning,
    I’d ring it in the evening,
    All over this land.

    I’d ring out danger,
    I’d ring out a warning
    I’d ring out love between my brothers and my sisters,
    All over this land.

    If I had a song,
    I’d sing it in the morning,
    I’d sing it in the evening,
    All over this land.

    I’d sing out danger,
    I’d sing out a warning
    I’d sing out love between my brothers and my sisters,
    All over this land.

    Well I got a hammer,
    And I got a bell,
    And I got a song to sing, all over this land.

    It’s the hammer of Justice,
    It’s the bell of Freedom,
    It’s the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters,
    All over this land.

    It’s the hammer of Justice,
    It’s the bell of Freedom,
    It’s the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters,
    All over this land

  19. felix 19

    You know that guy who promised to build us ten bridges? We haven’t signed anything yet, have we?

  20. Mike Smith 20

    Hits the nail on the head!

  21. vto 21

    That is the most useless effort I have seen with a hammer for a very long time. Looks like he’s never used one.

    podgy
    no muscles
    cant swing a hammer
    can only clip the ticket on money trading….

    I give you folks …………. the most useless man in the world!

  22. Paul Campbell 22

    Um, John, the placard we’re nailing on is up here

  23. With respect to Tony Orlando and Knock Three Times: (Sorry I don’t have the expertise to add a soundtrack, you’ll have to sing it yourself)

    Hey John, what ya doin’ down there?

    Bangin’ a nail all alone

    While we live right around you

    You can hear the votes a going
    We can hear the bribes a coming
    What will the next be
    We’re mates now you need us now you’re in poo

    Oh, my PM, knock three times

    On the nails if you want me

    You have the hype,

    Now you want my vote

    Oh, such crawling
    
After forgetting us always
    
So, tricks of that type

    “Ordinary kiwi bloke seeking work in the building industry. No 90 day trials please. Not much experience but have a cabinet full of tools.”

  26. Hayden 26

    If only there were someone in Cabinet who could teach turds how to swing a hammer.

  27. Sable 27

    The only real work I’ve done in the last six years…..

  28. Pasupial 28

    Key responds to criticism of his unhandiwork:

    “A builder may say that that’s not how you do the job – but that’s just one view, and like lawyers, I can provide you with another one that will give you a counterview.”

  29. joe90 29

    Dear leader hammers home his message…

  30. Sans Cle 30

    “Osborne!…..Get over here quick!……I understand you know how to get your nails done”

    • veutoviper 30.1

      LOL – but seriously, when I first saw Key’s attempts last night on TV3 News (I think) Osbourne was shown as coming in behind Key and nailing the (nail) in one almighty swing! So perhaps he has his uses/skills ……

      • veutoviper 30.1.1

        Yes – Osbourne does know how to swing a hammer, but still took him a few swings …. Just a couple of seconds in on this TV3 News video

        http://www.3news.co.nz/nznews/national-pulls-out-team-key-in-northland-2015030717?ref=video

        • Clemgeopin 30.1.1.1

          I found the equally funny part in that video was at about 1:40 when papa Key assures the nervous little Osborne telling him, ” Come here, you will be totally fine”! Nice daddy! That alone should secure Osborne a few sympathy votes out of pity.

          • veutoviper 30.1.1.1.1

            I had forgotten about that! Laughed when I saw it last night but only replayed the video tonight long enough to find Osborne doing a reasonably competent job nailing.

            I am too tired now, but I am now trying to recall whether this TV3 News video is also the one showing Osborne acting as a photographer for Key, taking photos of Key with admiring sychophants ….. rather than being the centre of attention as the Nat candidate.

            I actually feel a miniscule bit sorry for Osborne. He seems to be way out of his depth; but at the end of the day, he must take personal responsibility for making some bad life choices – eg. joining National and running as a Nat candidate.

            I also laughed when I saw the Key nailing video put up as a caption competition – this had not crossed my mind when I posted it on Open Mike earlier today.

            Yesterday I also found – and then lost – a wonderful photoshopped version of this photo of Steven Joyce ‘helping’ put up Osborne billboards on Saturday (retweeted by none other than Patrick Gower)


            ( The comments in this thread are well worth reading …)

            The photoshopped version,which I would love to refind but haven’t been able to,replaced the photo of Key with a photo of he who cannot be named but whose initials are M S.

  31. fender 31

    Wimp without guts can’t even accomplish what kids at kindy can do.

    Can’t wait to see him get thrown on his arse from the recoil when [r0b: slightly over the top] in Iraq.

  32. dan1 32

    Reminds me very much of Don Brash getting into the midget at Western Springs: totally gormless!

    • tricledrown 32.1

      Don’t Brash walking the Slippery plank the week he was stabbed in the back by Key.
      Now Keys support is planking.
      Can’t hold a hammer because to much ,……..g
      Karmas a bitch a bridge to far.
      Simple simon says.
      Trying to claw his way back up North.
      After decades of neglect by National
      Key misses the point that after Sabin National is unfashionable.

  33. Skinny 33

    “David are you sure your polling says there is ‘zero chance’ I can’t nail this.” 🙂

  34. philj 34

    John Key or John Keys Office shows how to miss hitting the nail on the head.He says it was his intention all along. John Armstrong agrees, ‘He’s not a professional, he’s an hammer chewer.”

  35. hoom 35

    Building is low skill.
    Builders made poor life choices.
    ‘I’ve spent years & years DIY building stuff around my various properties.’

    Theirs a man who,s never done an honest days work.

  40. Skinny 40

    “What do you mean David your polling now tells you ‘zero chance’ I can nail this.”

  41. mac1 41

    John Key demonstrates why there are two prices for ten bridges. This is the $69 million model.

  42. mac1 42

    Ow! I can see why they’re called hammer hands!”

  43. Clemgeopin 43

    Tut, tut John, you were asked to screw it, not waste your time, effort and bribes trying to hammer a hopeless plank up !

  44. tricledrown 44

    You can’t touch this mc hammer.

  45. Ecosse_Maidy 45

    When I watched Bob The Builder do this he made it look so easy!
    How hard can this be!?!

    Ouchhhhh Ma Fucking ********** basttttt fucking, jesus h,,,, arghhhhhhhh…..call a private ambulance now!

  46. Ecosse_Maidy 46

    No Commander in Chief…the election is over….

    We are here to take the placard down….

    CEO: If I wanna hammer i shall, fook you!

  47. Ecosse_Maidy 47

    Hey, I knew when we all did some DIY Cosmetic Surgery on Paula, that hammering would come in handy in other ways!

  48. tricledrown 48

    John Key to slippery to hold on to hammer.

  49. Ecosse_Maidy 49

    Ok, which of you Fuckos is singing a 9 inch nail track???

  50. So, if Labour say I didn’t hit the nail, that’s just more proof of their dirty politics, ackshully. And when I said I’d resign if I couldn’t hit a large nail with a bloody big hammer, I didn’t mean this specific nail and and what’s a hammer really anyway?

    Look, what New Zullenders want to know is what would Andrew Little do different? Um, yes, I know he used to be head of the Engineers union, so he’d probably use a drill, which is typical of the left, always wasting taxpayers money by using the right tool for the job when a perfectly good hammer could do it for half the cost. Ha ha, missed again, wait, wait, I’ll get it this time. Osborne, stop shaking and hold that screw straight. No, I did not say screw, and if Hager says I did, he’ll be proved wrong again. Whoops, sorry Mark, that didn’t hurt did it?

  51. Ecosse_Maidy 51

    Take that placard! Feel My Wrath!
    Fruit Flies & IS,,Be warned…I am now armed!”

  52. Ecosse_Maidy 52

    Right if Labour aint gonna placard in Northland , I shall help put up some Labour placards…

  59. McFlock 59

    Quoth the Craven politician
    (edited highlights, plagiarised from Poe. )

    Once upon a by-election dreary, while I pondered my vote, weak and weary,
    Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten promised law—
    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
    As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
    “’Tis some pork-barreller,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
    Only this and nothing more.”

    […]
    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
    Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
    But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
    And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, “About Sabin – you knew before??”
    This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, “Before!”—
    Merely this and nothing more.

    […]

    Much I marvelled this ungainly foulness to hear discourse plainly,
    Though its answer little meaning—little relevancy bore;
    For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
    Would have made him candidate, had they known before —
    Neither bird or beast upon the land would have asked the voters him adore,
    For fear the voters claim “Nevermore.”

  60. Ecosse_Maidy 60

    PM…? I really think you need to wear yr specs,,,,,That is not a nine iron and the placard isn’t Mr Obama”

  61. ankerawshark 61

    Adapted from the song “You’ve better Knock, knock, knock on wood”.

    I don’t want to lose here,
    This seat, to Winston P
    ‘Cause if I do, I will surely
    Surely lose my majority!

    ‘Cause winning , is better
    than any love I know
    It’s like thunder, lightning
    The power I crave is frightening
    You better knock, knock,
    on wood, baby, oooh ooh oooh oooh ooh, baby

    “Look, help me here. I can’t honestly recall. Which one is the hammer and which one is the nail?”

  84. Incognito 84

    Key is ten times better than the famous illusionist Uri Geller; he can bent and straighten a nail without even touching it but by just using sheer willpower and incessant chanting in a strange accent only known to the Old Druids from Middle Earth. What’s more is that he looks so relaxed and comfortable casting this mind-bending spell on the hapless viewer. I certainly had difficulty regaining my consciousness watching this clip ad infinitum but then again, I regularly pass out when watching Key.

  85. I wonder if this was going through the PM’s head …

  86. HumPrac 86

    John Key demonstrating some of the products for sale at his latest ‘asset sales convention’. The ‘asset sales convention’ is an event, for the rich, held annually by john Key on behalf of the National party. The aim of the convention is to sell the assets of New Zealanders. All of the big assets have been sold at prior conventions. Things like hammers, shoes, canned food, and kitchen utensils are still up for sale. The convention is in its seventh year of running.
