      That’s the camera on top. The antennae is in the nose. The braids disguise the listening devices woven in so that they’re undetectable. Very clever and using the PM too… who woulda thunk.

  75. Yorick 75

    “I am following the advice from those friendly chaps at Crosby + Textor that elections are won by displaying ’emotional intelligence’ rather than arguing the toss. That is done by the courts and the inuversities .. I fink.

    Gee, don’t I look emotionally intelligent ? Even the protection chappie behind me is smiling. As P.T. Barnum put it, a new one is born every minute ..

    Make sure you publish the best angle .. when Tuhoe came to parliament I saluted the short one with the tatts, ah yes – Tame Iti – there was a nice shot from behind on TV.

    I think that’s a kiwi’s head I’m wearing.

    Symbolic, really.

    How do you like my ‘cockney’ ?

    Can I show you a few tricks ? No ? Really ?
    I can change a few laws around here, you know.”
