    If more people watched him in the house, which isn’t that often really, they’d realise what a clown and consummate BS artist he is.

    Carter is like a mother hen shielding them, the jokes on us.

    • Tracey 1.1

      a deliberate choice is made to traverse the flag as a news item instead of something like this.

  2. Kevin 2

    David, comedy delivery is definitely NOT your forte! You were even more wound-up than John! [deleted]

      I’m no fan of Parkers, (Indeed labour) Kevin. But please prove that last remark of yours – are you accusing Parker of fraud? If you are going to say out there remarks – a bit of proof would be good – otherwise you just sound like a bullshit artist.

    • Tracey 2.2

      you need to provide proof of your last claim under the sires policy or risk a ban.

    That is scary, David Parker is right. It’s really bad form when our so called PM actually sounds like an idiot out of a comedy sketch.

    But, I think I said it somewhere else – we should ignore John Key. As we should ignore all people who have no honour.

    Just, have a good giggle – and lets get onto the task at hand.

    Wonderful David. But how does Key get away with it?

    • tracey 4.1

      because news editors decide keys flag distraction is the better story rather than insights into the real john key.

  5. ankerawshark 5

    Brilliant!

  6. Scintilla 6

    Laugh him out of office. Every time he fudges and wheedles and tells a whopper, repeat it straight back to him, people need it repeated so the message gets through the walls of trivia that grow ever larger, it seems. I saw that interview and was stunned at his shameless evasion. I had to ask myself if he really did say what I thought he did – sure enough, he did.

    • saveNZ 6.1

      Good idea. The real Key comes out when he is ridiculed and also shows how pathetic MSM are for still not reporting any of this stuff.

    • fijibill 6.2

      I agree Scintilla. John Key deserves public ridicule for the manner in which he communicates with us, the public. Honesty, transparency and accountability are lacking from his behaviour time after time, yet these are fundamental expectations of his role. How did New Zealand society become so passive to this? Even complicit?

  7. Murray Rawshark 7

    Parliament is supposedly the highest court in the land. If I’d behaved in lower courts as FJK behaves in parliament, I would probably have been convicted of contempt of court. Why do so many people think it’s great when this fuckwit does it?

  8. Tom Barker 8

    John Key is undoubtedly the Richard Nixon of NZ politics, is he not? The disturbing thing is – he’d probably be proud of that comparison.

    • Sanctuary 8.1

      I would be surprised if Key has even heard of Nixon.

      • You_Fool 8.1.1

        At the end of the day, He will not recall if he remembered Nixon or not, and actually it was a long time ago and he can’t be expected to remember every historical figure, even the most apt

  9. tracey 9

    if john key had done that to goff or shearer or cunliffe or little it would have headlined given what headlined when he mocked them.

  10. ianmac 10

    Did David make that up or was it a particular interview, or an amalgam of interviews? Bloody good anyway.

    • felix 10.1

      All from the one press stand up. Monday I think.

      • Tracey 10.1.1

        you couldnt make that up…

        comedy gold…

        gottta find a youtube link to the real interview

        I wonder if Key would submit himself to a Neurologist to test his long term and short term memory. I really worry for his health (and our nation) due to his seemingly deteriorating mental agility in this respect

  11. Sable 11

    I think we need to do something like this. Australia has the right idea:

    http://rt.com/news/235775-abbott-hopeless-australia-poster/

    • Scintilla 11.1

      That is a great poster! One word, one face – cut through.

      Something similar for the Tui billboards perhaps? A spot of stealthy street art, spray can and stencil, a different kind of “bomber” – tho I suspect that kind of activity might have to be very stealthy indeed.

  12. Dorothy 12

    Well done David Parker .
    It is a pity more NZers do not listen to Parliament but good
    that we have at least one good reporter .
