    Oh fuck I have read the wrong speech

  14. Treetop 14

    Playing hide and seek with the budget.

    A few seconds later, John realised his mistake: using a highlighter pen as eyeliner could cause nasty burns.

  19. Irascible 19

    “Oh Shit!! I’ve been caught out not remembering the Crosby Textor script again. It looks like Don will be using this in a hostile takeover bid soon.” This was John Key’s reaction on being given a transcript of the statements he made while giving a press conference in which his honesty was questioned. He had previously stated that he didn’t know what he’d said as he hadn’t seen the programme yet.

  20. Craig 20

    When I open my eyes, please tell me that Brash has finally gone away and stopped bothering me…

    ‘Oh shit, that journalist is about to me ask a question about the snip again. He wants to know what I meant when, through an off the cuff (I thought I was being smart at the time) slip of the tongue statement I said in that press conference “All I can say is it’s been highly successful but anyway we won’t get into that either.” That was a year ago now. I thought they had let it pass.’

    John Key Uses Charades To Explain National Economic Policy

    I can’t hear you
    I can’t hear you

  26. toad 26

    For fuck sakes Bill, don’t you remember me telling you not to contract Harold Camping as a consultant for the Budget?

  27. Hey! When I look through my fingers like this, Bill does look like a fence post!

  28. todd 28

    If I pretend that I can’t see poor people, I’m pretty sure that they can’t see me.

  33. vto 33

    I think its Key thinking yet again that he’s back at kindy.

  34. William 34

    The use of a yellow highlight pen was a sure giveaway that the speech notes were written by Don Brash.

  35. M 35

    Seeing the destruction he’s wrought on New Zealand Key commences to gouge out his own eyes before flying to Hawai’í to do the plutonium tango.

  36. M 36

    John Key bitterly regrets taking Joan River’s advice to have his upper and lower lids done.

  37. Craig 37

    “Ah!!! Actual statistical calculations and hard data!!! Stop it, stop it!!! I’m meltinnnnggggg…” [Key, after a stray gust of wind whipped a Labour Party policy costing into his face…]
