    7% of kiwis will get to invest in power companies they already own.

    Well do ya, punk?

  23. fender 23

    They gave me a blue hard-hat but how come my right ear is turning red; Help! Labour have put a curse on me.

    Witnessing the “smiling assassin” turn into the “unhappy fugitive”….priceless, and bloody expensive.

    The defendant in the theft of NZ court case attempts to appear remorseful.

    The penny drops with Key that Brownlee is no good at woodwork either, he then decides to sack all technology teachers as revenge.

    Parata called me a rockstar, so I started doing drugs, now I look like Keith Richards. (sorry Keith)

    It’s not fair! I wanted to be the man that sold the world, not just a few small islands.

    Cheer up Johnny, that face isn’t anything that a good surgeon and few of your millions can’t fix.

    • mac1 43.1

      Your mention of a few millions, M, called to mind the Woody Guthrie song.

      “I don’t want your millions, Mister,
      I don’t want your diamond ring.
      All I want is the right to live, Mister,
      Give me back my job again.

      Now, I don’t want your Rolls-Royce, Mister,
      I don’t want your *Rolex watch.
      All I want’s just food for my babies,
      Give me back that job I got.

      We worked to build this country, Mister,
      While you enjoyed a life of ease.
      You’ve stolen all that we built, Mister,
      Now our hungry children they starve and freeze.

      Think me dumb if you wish, Mister,
      Call me green, or blue, or red.
      This one thing I sure know, Mister,
      My hungry babies must be fed.”

      * my change to lyrics here.

    I can’t wait to get back to Hawaihi,  away from this bunch of assholes, and that is my lot too, not to mention the great unwashed…

    Oh dear, he’s Lord Percy.

    JK: After literally an hour’s ceaseless searching, I have succeeded in creating gold, pure gold.

    Lord Ashcroft: Are you sure?

    JK: Yes, my lord. Behold.

    Lord Ashcroft: John… it’s green.

    JK: That’s right, my lord.

    Lord Ashcroft: Yes, John, I don’t want to be pedantic or anything, but the colour of gold is gold. That’s why it’s called gold. What you have discovered, if it has a name, is ‘green’.

    JK: Oh, Lord Ashcroft, can it be true, that I hold here in my mortal hand a nugget of purest green?

    Lord Ashcroft: Indeed you do, John, except, of course, it’s not really a nugget, it’s more of a splat.

    JK: Well, yes, a splat today… but tomorrow — who knows, or dares to dream?
