    All the country’s problems solved, the Prime Minister had literally nothing better to do than pretend to drive a toy jet boat

    Everyone else might be up the creek without a paddle, but I was brought up in a state house in Bryndwr with no father and if I can get out of this predicament everyone else should be able to.

  45. Craig 45

    Despite the adulation of his sycophants amongst the press gallery, Key found he couldn’t walk on water after all and had to use alternative means…

    “It’s just like NZ, really – it’s mostly red, and I’m trying to turn it to the right.”
