    You left out the last one in Q4 2011:

    Prob going to be re-elected PM. Shit.

    According to PeteG those tax cuts saved us from being even worse off (it definitely helped the rich get richer after all).

    • PeteG 2.1

      I didn’t say that, but you’re not big on worrying about what is actually written

      The tax cuts will have made some difference, but I bet you can’t provide proof that overall it was a positive or negative influence.

      It’s curious why greater than expected paying off of private debt and less buying of unneccesary consumer goods with borrowed money are portrayed as bad things.

    2011Q1 Missed off “Queen’s Corgi licks my er, um hand.” (Licked off the Royal wee?)

    Missed out Hard Talk interview where all he could say was 100%!

    I like how it has no mention of global financial crisis and recession.

    • r0b 5.1

      Key was elected promising to bring us roaring out of recession. He promised us before the 2008 election that National could do that. Lies lies lies.

      There you go, I’ve mentioned it now.

      • Jim Nald 5.1.1

        Chucking out peanuts to the working poor monkeys, John Key gave the rich elites the lion share – by getting us into a big debt.

    • Carol 5.2

      Um, I guess that is because key & his government claim no responsibility for the GFC or recession. But their job is to manage the situation they are landed with…. and hence the focus on their steps to success…… unless you think Key & co (other finance traders?) engineered the GFC & recession as part of their steps to success?

    You haven’t got RWC photo-ops in there as well!

    Mmm and job summit .. and chopper?
    You might be running out of space soon.
    And we might not be able to read all that.

    Will have to get Whitechapel to help us see.

    I would say that Key’s chart to success would include the absolute pinnacle – namely, being re-elected for a second term (first election was a doddle). I would think Key himself would see it this way. I supect he is going to fail at the pinnacle. Not reach the peak of the mountain.

    I wonder if Key has ever experienced monumental failure?

    One significant addition needed here, with its flow on effects:

    Q3 2010 – lead economy BACK into recession

    from there we have Borrow billions to pay for tax cuts and announce asset sales to pay for tax cuts.

    Did this guy make or lose money as a forex trader?

    If make, he obviously had more competent workmates than Bill English.
