Cult of “personality”

I sometimes wonder if it bothers any of the free-thinking rugged individualists of the political right that they are expected to line up like sheep behind John Key. Repeat after me – “I’m a Key person!”. Baaaaa! The latest bout of this cult of “personality” was on show at yesterday’s Big Gay Out…

Seems that Key was booed on stage, and perhaps his stickers didn’t fare any better…

Glad someone found a use for them.

  1. What’s going on under Key’s T shirt?

  2. Lanthanide 2

    This is the first year I recall the coverage of Key at BGO saying he was booed. I find it hard to believe that he wasn’t booed every other year, but for some reason that was never mentioned by the press?

  3. North 3

    See, it’s not just Fizzy Anus who’s in love with the genus honest john.

    Man…….Fizzy will be pissed !

  4. adam 4

    I liked the greens sticker, and they did a god job of getting great coverage with people.

    from the JK booed link

    ” “mostly Labour and Green””

    WTF is a reporter doing using JKs trade mark slander in the opening line?!

    • Murray Rawshark 5.1

      We don’t have reporters. We have the FJK PR department.

      • One Anonymous Bloke 5.1.1

        Indeed. ‘Apparently’ the ‘reporter’ didn’t find the time to talk to anyone doing the actual booing.

        • framu 5.1.1.1

          rather telling isnt it

        • alwyn 5.1.1.2

          From the linked story we see

          “Famous Auckland drag queen Miss Ribena said most of the crowd were “Labour and Greens supporters”.
          Despite the positivity on display on the day, Ribena spoke of the homophobia that the gay community still faced.
          “There’s a lot of people coming from the outer suburbs, like South Auckland, to abuse people on K road and Ponsonby,” she said.
          “The council should do something about that.” ”

          So it was someone other than the reporter that described the people there being Labour or Green supporters.
          I have no idea whether “Miss Ribena” is famous or not but she isn’t the reporter or John Key is she? Apparently the reporter did talk to someone there didn’t she?

          On the other hand where are all the Green and Labour supporters howling her down for that appalling slander about the people from South Auckland? And what are the Council supposed to do about her complaints? Is K-Road going to be declared a no-go area for people from Mangere? Racially segregated suburbs perhaps, or would that be gender segregated?

          • Murray Rawshark 5.1.1.2.1

            The cult is strong in you.

          • framu 5.1.1.2.2

            “Indeed. ‘Apparently’ the ‘reporter’ didn’t find the time to talk to anyone doing the actual booing.”

            The reporter spoke to someone – but still didnt talk to anyone else it seems – and oh looky – its someone handily repeating the favourite go to slur of our PM

            and in case you didnt spot it – the two bits of quoted txt are different – so its a bit hard to specify where that slur came from – but we do know its one of keys favs dont we.

            its still shit journalism alwyn (good to see you think all south AKrs are brown though – how racisty of you – 🙂 )

            So i will take your point on that original quote – but as for the rest of it, is there anything else you want to get OTT about?

          • Anno1701 5.1.1.2.3

            “outer suburbs, LIKE South Auckland”

            pay attention………..

          • One Anonymous Bloke 5.1.1.2.4

            Yes, Alwyn: not anyone actually booing then.

            “Hi, can you tell me why you’re booing the Prime Minister?”

            “I’m a Labour Green supporter”.

            What Murray said.

          • North 5.1.1.2.5

            You do have a muddled mind darling…..

    • Richard 5.2

      Actually it wasn’t John Key who made that comment. But don’t let the facts stop your outrage…

      • framu 5.2.1

        actually that points been raised and answered

        im so outraged! (/sarc)

        do you have anything to add richard besides assumptions of my emotions?

        or are you just gonna sit there and regurgitate the same point alwyn made while ignoring my replies to him?

  6. alwyn 6

    “good to see you think all south AKrs are brown though – how racisty of you “.

    How on earth do you come to this conclusion from what I said?
    As far as the “slur” you attribute to John Key. Can you show me some examples of him saying anything like that and would you really regard it as a “slur” to be identified as a Labour, (or a Green), supporter anyway?

    • framu 6.1

      ” Racially segregated suburbs perhaps”

      and

      elanor catton – cmon, dont play all coy, you know the PM just loves to trot out the “theyre green party supporters” line

      but regardless – its still shit journalism

    • North 6.2

      What’s making you try SOOOO hard Alwyn girl @ 6 ?

      Truly darling, not EVERY petal’s obliged to go into wither just to make the ThePonceKey look fabulous.

  7. shorts 7

    given its not election year can’t the political parties & media just bugger off and leave people to have some fun with their community events without the need to score brownie points?

  8. “Look who it isn’t – the it man, baby.”

  9. BLiP 9

    According to Failfax . . .

    . . . Key acknowledged that when he first came to this event nine years ago National had “one per cent of the support of the gay community”.

    “But we’ve turned that around. I voted for gay marriage,” he said . . .

    . . . is that true? As far as I can remember, John Key wasn’t in the House when the vote was taken.

  10. BLiP 10

    Turns out he wasn’t there but did actually vote for the passing of the legislation.

  11. fisiani 11

    The most popular Prime Minister ever perhaps. Of course he got a few boos from jealous people. Tall poppy syndrome. You people cannot handle the truth. Angry Andy would have has gritted teeth and rictus smile. Honest John is very comfortable as is New Zealand.

    • Kevin 11.1

      …and so say the great majority of us.

    • Tracey 11.2

      LOL you are one of the funniest satirists here

    • McFlock 11.3

      “perhaps”???

      That’s a good sign for the left, fisihawhaw.

      You were far more certain of your leader a couple of years ago

      • fisiani 11.3.1

        I actually wondered if MJ Savage was actually more popular then Honest John but that was in the days before polling of leaders so hard to say. Honest John is easily the most popular PM in the last 50 years.

        • McFlock 11.3.1.1

          good for you, that you’re beginning to have second thoughts about Key.
          50 years? That includes Clark, Kirk, and bits of Lange and Muldoon. Tall order.

        • tricledrown 11.3.1.2

          Fishy anal PonceKey fanboy.
          Key the leader of Conartists and Crims.
          Woodhouse police Minister claimed his grandfather fought in WW1 Can be trusted yeah right!
          Key claimed he was in charge of setting up Merrill Lynch branch in Ireland.
          Key said he was going make New Zealand a financial hub like Ireland.
          Since then Merrill Lynch used Insider Trading and a massive Ponzi scheme in Ireland leaving Ireland bankrupt.
          Key was deeply involved in this,since Irelands economic crash caused by Keys company Key has not mentioned Ireland once!
          Merrill Lynch have been bailed out twice but they have never offered Ireland 1 cent of reperation for their criminal acts!

        • ghostwhowalksnz 11.3.1.3

          So it must be time to be ‘shorting’ him then. There is no upside left.

    • North 11.4

      You do know he’s cheating on you Fiz ? Smarten up that face slap girl !

      Someone told me there’s a dungeon in Hamilton…..Waikato not Ontario.

      “The most popular Prime Minister ever perhaps”

      No more popular as Preferred PM than Helen Clark at her height. In fact, I’d say marginally less popular.

      I’ll have to track down the figures, but I suspect his Performance Approval ratings are lower than Clark’s (in the pre-2005 period) too.

      Here’s some interesting stats from the latest 3 News Reid Research Poll that you may have “inadvertently” overlooked, Fisticuffs.

      Does Andrew Little look like a better match for John Key than previous Labour Leaders ?

      Entire Sample Yes 55%
      National Voters Yes 48%

      Almost half of your fellow Nats rate Little quite highly, Fisi. And that almost certainly includes much of National’s softly-aligned swing-vote. They’ve let ya down again, haven’t they, Big Fella.

      (Oh and, yeah, I’d say Mickey Savage, King Dick Seddon (and possibly both Norman Kirk and Peter Fraser) were more popular). None of which is to deny Key’s remarkable resilience.

      • fisiani 11.5.1

        I would be first to agree that Andrew Little looks a better match than previous Labour leaders. That is patently obvious when you compare him with The Cunliffe, Shearer, Goff and Clark. How does that an any way mean that Nats rate him quite highly? Do you have comprehension problems? None of the Nats would switch their vote from Key to Little. It’s a meaningless question designed to give the Left a glimmer of hope.

        • swordfish 11.5.1.1

          They clearly rate Little highly as a competent and effective Leader, Fisi. Do please try and keep up.

          • fisiani 11.5.1.1.1

            I would also have said Little was a better match but still do not rate him as a competent and effective leader. No National voter does. You do have comprehension problems. For instance he could have spoken about anything this week but has already blagged on about foreigners taking Kiwi jobs in a poor imitation of Winston Peters and now panders to Maori separatism myths which are doomed to delay settlements. Not exactly the actions of a competent and effective leader.

            • One Anonymous Bloke 11.5.1.1.1.1

              Pity the authoritarian follower discussing qualities of leadership.

            • swordfish 11.5.1.1.1.2

              55% say Little’s a better match for Key than previous Labour Leaders
              54% see Little as a Capable Leader (the highest rating for a Labour leader since Clark)
              I’d suggest it’s more than reasonable to see a high Capable Leader rating as denoting a widespread view that that leader is both competent and effective. Anything else is pure semantics.

              Like I say, Do try and keep up, Fisticuffs.

        • tricledrown 11.5.1.2

          Fishyanal when the perverbial hits the fan over the Key cover up!
          Even National will no longer support a leader who condones criminal activity by helping giving the perpetrator any level of respectability!

  12. Tanz 12

    Good job on Key. Can’t stop laughing. That’s gratitude for you. Hope he is happy he betrayed his key conservative voters/ex voters.

  13. AmaKiwi 13

    Our political system is the cult of the personality, whether Key or Clark or Bolger, etc.

    The people NEVER decide the issues. We vote for a party whose leader will be our de facto dictator and whom we hope will deliver the results we want on some issues.

    In the last election I voted for Cunliffe, but I said often, “My dictator will be better than their dictator.” I have no doubt Cunliffe would have been a dictator and Andrew Little will be, too.

    We have to take decision making away from the corporation owned club we call “Parliament.” How? The only counter force I can see is the people deciding through binding citizen initiated referendums.

    If you have another idea, I’m all ears because over the years our dictators have done some horrendously stupid things which the people KNEW were stupid but the people were smart enough to know they were powerless to prevent.

    Lefties, want to win the next election? Start creating the cult of Andrew Little.

  14. Sable 14

    Mindless marketing for mostly weird or not so bright people. Shame the rest of us have to pay the price for their blind loyalty to Shonkey.
