      5 talking points?

      Are they doing an almighty upgrade, rejigging before final release. I thought they had prided themselves that the doll had one talking point Vote National. Haven't they already decided to do away with the policies?

      lt now comes with an optional extra two words 'Buddy' and 'Kura' if you squeeze it.

    B version – Bullshit Barbie.

    We only wish it was only in cinemas.

    I'm a bloke, and I'm crappy
    I'm rich, but I've whined
    I'm short, but I'm wealthy, yeah
    I flew high, but I'm grounded
    I'm insane, and I'm overwhelmed
    I'm lost, but I'm hopeful, baby

    And what it all comes down to
    Is that everything's gonna be mine, mine, mine
    'Cause I've got one hand in my pocket
    And the other one is givin' tax cuts

    I'm a flunk, when I'm sober
    I'm old, and I'm overpaid
    I'm bored, but I'm praying, yeah
    I don't care, and I'm useless
    I'm here, but I'm really gone
    I'm wrong, but I'm not sorry, baby

    And what it all comes down to
    Is that everything's gonna be mine, mine, mine
    'Cause I've got one hand in my pocket
    And the other one is givin' tax cuts
