Saw this in the new culture/humour page in the Dom:
Glad to see the “do-nothing PM” as Rodney Hide called John Key doing plenty of late. Take the past fortnight for example; there’s been the barbecue and beer with Prince William, photo ops with punters at the Wellington races, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony and practice swing at the new Millbrook golf course. His enthusiasm for a bit of hard yakka seems to have rubbed off on some of this ministers as well, what with Paula Bennett doing her bit at the AC/DC gig in Wellington. It’s tough running the country, but someone’s got to do it.
I think that’s grossly unfair. The guy’s just back from an three exhausting weeks in Hawaii. Needs a break. Plus, he always looks like he’s having such a good time when he’s skiving off .
And it’s not like that’s all he’s done. Dude’s also spent $200,000 of our money on propaganda for his most useless minister’s crappy policy.
Seriously though. No-one’s against PMs and ministers doing some fun stuff. Problem is when that’s all they do. Like they say “it’s tough running the country, but someone’s got to do it“. 250,000 jobless Kiwis need a government that will put in the hard yards for them.
