Since when was harassing a waitress “casual”? John Key’s “excuse” blew up all over Twitter last night. A sample…

      Casually killing Adult Community Education Night Classes #CasualJohn

      • Chooky 6.1.1

        +100 Clem… ‘Adult Community Education Night Classes’ were robbed…and the money given to private schools…. and then the Adult Community Education Night Classes were casually exterminated

    Mike Sabin is resigning over some “family” thing but I am pretty casual about that. He did a good job and I even considered him for Cabinet because he is a casual like me,

    Before he became PM, #casualjohn was pretty relaxed about his golf game.( mid 20s handicap)

    6 years later he has more time for the game and shed the casual weekend plonker label ( 11-12 handicap).

    Good to see something he hasnt become more casual at.

  9. Incognito 9

    Casually landing a 747 on a pin head whilst in a three-way handshake with his co-pilot Bill English and that other guy who casually barged past Airport Security.

    MNNNN Probably 5,000 people die in Nepal. Standardistas still going on about a ponytail. Good to see you have your priorities.

    • felix 10.1

      “still going on about a ponytail”

      Who’s going on about a ponytail?

      People are “going on” about the PM being a bully who repeatedly harassed a young woman over the course of several months. The ponytail in incidental to the story.

      Those of us who can, would have already donated what they can to the relevant groups trying to help, but what else do you suggest?

      A running death toll ?
      so you can complain about some morbid fascination of the left

      An endless stream of grisly photos ?
      so you can hypocritically cry we all lack sensitivity

      A rehashing of the more local aspect to this disaster perhaps?
      – we could discuss the abject failure of this National Government in not only completely fouling up the rebuilding of Christchurch but also its atrocious record of not doing a tenth of what it could to help those struggling to survive the now four years long aftermath – no you probably don’t want that

      so what do you suggest we all discuss fisiani?

    • Atiawa 10.3

      fisi the casual humanitarian.

    • appleboy 10.4

      Oh there he is again , PISSEDEEEEARRRKNEE banging on on every subject about this all being a non issue that no one cares about. You know what they say – protesting too much that it’s all nothing just makes you look a little lonely and desperate.

    • ropata 10.5

      Close to a breach of site policy there fifi old chum.. demanding a particular editorial slant.. did you not notice there is a thread about it? PS. Talking doesn’t help Nepal. Donating does.

      Anyways I’m off to the Nepal thread to add some links

  11. Treetop 11

    Yeal Right, he doesn’t even go to buy milk without a diplomatic protection body guard or two or three.

    I am waiting to see if the police body guards are going to be drawn into being a witness. The only way that the police will not be drawn in is if the PM has immunity, which I do not think is the case.

    • tc 11.1

      Unlikely they have plausible deniability in so far as they could claim they were looking for potential threats to the PM I.e. looking not at him but around him as that’s their job.

      Also think about what you’re suggesting….. the NZ police telling tales on a national party PM, lotto odds on that treetop.

      • Treetop 11.1.1

        “Also think about what you’re suggesting…..the NZ police telling tales on a national party PM, lotto odds on that treetop.”

        I agree.

  12. Paul 13

    Casual about women’s rights over there as well….

  13. david 14

    Casual appears to be seen as a good quality. I doubt Obama, Cameron, Merkel, or any leader worthy of the name would ever wish to be seen as or associated with casual. We are talking about the PM of the country and not a bar manager.

    Does 49% of the electorate still support him? If so, why?

  14. vto 15

    casual to the point of absolute zero use

    • seeker 15.1

      exactly vto……… no use at all, except to the National party (for the moment at least).
