    The conservatives court the one remaining voter against gay marriage

  2. McFlock 2

    The man in the mirror: if you want to make the world a better place, just look at yourself and make a change…

  3. Puckish Rogue 3

    Wish You Wern’t Here

  4. McFlock 4

    Colin Craig lobbies the remaining membership of the conservative party.

  5. Joy Clark 5

    Colin’s Magic Hands

  6. Policy Parrot 6

    Players gonna play, play play,
    Haters gonna hate, hate, hate,
    I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake ….
    Shake it ah, Shake it ah,

    (BTW – that Taylor Swift track drives me nuts)

    • maui 6.1

      I think that’s because they play it all the time on NewstalkZB as an intro to a show of one of their moralless speak hate hosts.

    • McFlock 6.2

      ooops, I did it again… 🙂

  7. Dan 7

    I wish there was two of me…..(could be a really lame poem in that)

  8. Jimmy 8

    Hello me … It’s me again

    “….he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention.” Adam Smith 1776

    “Nice to meet you but I deny all your charges.”

  11. Charles 11

    Following John Key’s advice, Colin Craig hits the streets to win the Ghost Votes.

  12. Charles 12

    Like the Sasquatch, Conservative party voters are difficult to catch in the open. Today, taking us deep into their natural habitat, Dr. Craig reveals to us the shelters under which such timid creatures often hide. Slowly winning their trust, this photo reveals the moment he reaches out to one, before POOF …it is gone, along with Dr.Craig’s dreams of leading them into mainstream acceptance…

  13. maui 13

    Dubious new “Star Trek” transportation technology has Craig pouring in funding.

  14. Charles 14

    “Shirtless man and taxi cab driver in stand-off outside Sky City…”
    (drama partially obscured by politically-homeless man)

  15. NZSage 15

    On reflection, it was inappropriate.

  16. dukeofurl 16

    Have we met before ?

  17. McFlock 17

    A puppet greets a reflection.

  18. I don’t get why everyone picks on this guy?
    Yes he might be a bit of a god bothering dick, but he is light years ahead of most of the wankers in parliament, at least he is honest.
    Clearly honesty is to much for most people?

    • Lanthanide 18.1

      How exactly is it honest to portray yourself as being of high moral fibre, and then have your press secretary resign after you’d been writing her love letters?

      Then, cover it up from the board of your party in the hopes that no one would find out.

      So no, he’s worse than most politicians in parliament.

  19. Clemgeopin 19

    There was no sex. Just an ex and some eggs. Now let us shake on it.

  20. repateet 20

    Mirror, mirror on the wall who’s the gonest of them all?

  21. repateet 21

    To be perfectly honest I don’t get why everyone picks on me.
    I might be a bit of a god bothering dick, but I’m light years ahead of most of the wankers in parliament, at least I’m honest. Clearly honesty is too much for most people.

  22. repateet 22

    Thanks for seeing me off Rachel, but everyone knows now, you could’ve out in the open.

  23. b waghorn 23

    “Its a shame you’re not as good as national s shadow men” says collin.
