John Key must apologise

Patrick Gower is off on one of his typical personal crusades against Labour again today: Andrew Little must apologise to John Shewan (yes of all the urgent issues in the world and NZ, this is top of Gower’s list). Dita DeBoni has the perfect reply:

Perhaps the Government might want to say sorry

The Government should apologise to the people of New Zealand for treating them with utter contempt and total disrespect.

The language is a parody of the Gower rant.

They have been caught out, time after time, speaking untruths – about really important stuff – and refusing to rectify problems, let alone admit to them.

This week alone, it emerged from tax expert John Shewan that the country’s laws around tax-free trusts were inadequate and the trusts were probably being used as tax havens – as the IRD has warned several times previously.

It’s completely contrary to what John Key has assured us for so many months.

Mr Key got that wrong, and has to put it right.

Bill English was found to have pulled figures out of the ether when making his claim that the country could not afford paid parental leave.

Alarmingly for a Finance Minister, he seemed to be unable to calculate that Sue Moroney’s proposal would add just $120 million – not $240 million – a year, to his budget.

Where’s his apology for getting this rather large sum wrong? …

And so on, there’s plenty more, go read the full piece at One News.



Update: Patrick Gower must apologise…

  1. And how about an apology to Nicky Hager and the others who broke the Panama Papers?

    • r0b 1.1

      And Ambrose Bradley, and Jon Stephenson and Mike Joy and and and…

    • Anne 1.2

      And how about apologies to two former senior Foreign Office diplomats whose names were dragged through the mud by this govt. vis a vis it’s pitiful apologist, Paula Rebstock.

      And what about an apology to Julie-Anne Genter whose ‘recommendations’ were described by John Key as barking mad (thus inferring JAG was barking mad) then turns around and agrees to implement identical recommendations by John Shewan.

      The list goes on…

    • maninthemiddle 1.3

      Why? Because of the Elvis impersonator?

  2. Greg 2

    So much for a third term,out of idea’s, no ideals, fictional with truth, government not being arrogant,

    My theme song:

  3. Ffloyd 3

    And to David Cunliffe for just about everything.

    • stunned mullet 3.1

      I still don’t accept his apology for being a man.

      • One Anonymous Bloke 3.1.1

        The problem is your illiterate misrepresentation of what he said. No wait, you might be aware of his full statement and be lying about it. Or perhaps you believed something someone else told you.

        So there are three possibilities: you struggle to comprehend English, or you’re lying, or you’re a dupe.

        Personally I think you’re lying: you understand the context of Cunliffe’s full statement and you are quote-mining it anyway, because dishonesty is your first resort.

        • stunned mullet 3.1.1.1

          You missed the fourth and possibly final possibility.

          • One Anonymous Bloke 3.1.1.1.1

            Yeah nah, I had you pegged for trash after your first few comments. Perhaps you think you possess some brand new style of dishonesty, Sorry sweety: you’re transparent.

            4 : Stunned mullet believes real men beat woman and kids

            5 ) stunned mullet thanks John Key and the Nats for winning us the world cup … in domestic violence ….

            6) Beaten women and kids should be thankful national real men used them to protect us all from no balls cunliffe ……….. who stunned mullet would gladly poof bash to reclaim mens pride.

            7) stunned mullet is a secret repressed homosexual projecting his fears

            8) stunned mullet is very under endowed with a tiny cock and no brains, this makes him angry at women ……

            9) there is actually a few good reason to support male violence ………. which stunned mullet is about to explain to us so we know hes not a slap happy creep.

            10) real men pull pony tails and play with little girls hair ….

                That’s a highly offensive and disgusting comment you made, because you got well and truly trounced Stunned Mullet. Worthy of the moderator’s attention IMO.

            Someone prepared to defend a government that does not house its citizens.
            Shameful.

      • Ffloyd 3.1.2

        Why not?

  4. ianmac 4

    Key never apologises for anything unless there are votes in it.
    Today in Question Time Key had at least two goes at Andrew calling for Andrew to apologise. One of them was in the guise of asking a question to the English.

  5. TopHat 5

    Just shows that Nact don’t need Cameron and CO anymore. They have MSM operators to play dirty for them.

  6. McFlock 6

    lol
    I wonder if the newshub-ris crowd thought Little was “hiding” because he went to a coffee shop and they spend their time in a bar?

  7. Richardrawshark 7

    He owes us all one. Bill English should resign in shame.

    None of it will happen.

    What should be done no one dares mention.

    • r0b 7.1

      What should be done is we should work, and we should use our vote, to change the government.

    • Draco T Bastard 7.2

      Personally, I think we need to see these scum in jail. They’ve been lying the entire time that they’ve been in government.

      • leftie 7.2.1

        Yep, and made to pay back what they stole. The Nats and their partners in crime should be charged with treason, and crimes against NZ and it’s people.

    • Greg 7.3

      Bill English is confused, he admitted it yesterday.
      Trust him with your financial accounts, yeah right.

  8. Jack Ramaka 8

    The fact of the matter is the National Government do not want this matter looked into any further as they will end up with egg on their faces, it ain’t rocket science.

    Politicans, bankers, criminal networks, terrorist groups, have all been hiding money in tax havens, secret trusts for whatever purposes, only they will know?

  9. Observer Toke 9

    .
    . The ego of Paddy Gower – is big. After all he is on TV.

    . But the way he waddles along like an ugly duckling behind his hero John Key, is sycophancy of sickening proportions.

    . His lack of balance may have something to do with an inherent unbalance. It is very persistent whatever it is.
    .Bias is the curse of countless journalists.

  10. One Anonymous Bloke 10

    So Shewan signed off on Little’s statement.

    Why do National Party trash tell so many lies? How will Patrick “I am the story” Gower find employment if National Party trash ever stop lying?

    Which is worse, the dogshit, or it’s mouthpiece?

  11. Jack Ramaka 11

    The media and journalists are not very well balanced these days, we are living in a world full of B/S?

  12. Dale 12

    Where’s the letter that Shewan signed? And will it be published?
    If it isn’t then Little will be lying again. Put up or shut up.
    Two defamation cases in election year! Orsum!

  13. Dale 13

    Paul What are you on about?
    This nothing to do with housing.
    It’s about Little lying and his cowardes.

    • Muttonbird 13.1

      Do you mean cowardice?

      If so, you need to apologise to Mr Little.

    • Paul 13.2

      I realise that.
      And I am noting that you are happy to defend a government that does not house it’s people.
      Your opinions can be viewed with this in mind.

  14. Commonpleb 14

    Paddy’s been an fwit to other nice, normal human beings since he was 21. Seen it up close and it wasn’t pretty. Leopards don’t change their spots. He’s not even particularly clever, so it’s hard to fathom how he got his job other than by brown-nosing the right people and making his usual snide jokes at other people’s expense.
    His personal attacks on Cunliffe during the last election campaign were outrageous, and helped to ensure this nasty mob remained in power. How much damage has been inflicted on the country in the last few years? How many families have slipped from working class to underclass through no fault of their own? Shame on Gower.

    • Richard Christie 14.1

      it’s hard to fathom how he got his job

      I heard that Garner highly recommended the creep to TV3.

  15. North 15

    Oh what a wanker is Gower ! Patrick having another ‘episode’ where everything is actually about Patrick. Sooooo ridiculous but dick seems to believe it !

    What about apologies to David Cunliffe first aye, if we’re gonna pompously go all Truth Commission.

    As I recall ALL of the MSM went completely feral on Cunliffe over the standard form letter……gleefully using the now proven lies about the bottle of wine. Duffer Armstrong was even shrieking “Resign !”

    “ALL” includes the ‘unfortunate’ Gower. Maybe you shut it about apologies aye Gower ? Until you give one that’s been outstanding for a long time.

    I’m sure you have aspirations to being better than a flatulent gargoyle Patrick. So apologise. Like a man. For the fiction you engaged and the hawkish, rough, dishonest disseminations re David Cunliffe.

    • Tiger Mountain 15.1

      at least John Armstrong finally had the decency upon his official retirement to apologise to Mr Cunliffe

      Gower’s life membership of the “Key Love” club precludes him from decency according to club President Mike Hosking and junior Vice Presidents Slateroil and Penguin

      • leftie 15.1.1

        I wasn’t impressed with Armstrong’s apology to David Cunliffe, it was half arsed and didn’t go far enough imo. But something is better than nothing, I guess.

    • leftie 15.2

      Well said North.

  16. Observer Toke 16

    . Would I be wrong in thinking that NEWSHUB hates nearly 50% of the New Zealand population ?. And adores the nearly 50% who follow Mr Flawed Key? The little girl seeker.

    If NEWSHUB is in anyway receiving funding from the New Zealand Government, could the nearly 50% of hated people take a case to Court on the grounds of constant harassment and humiliation funded and promoted by Parliament?

    NEWSHUB is deliberately undermining, despising and ridiculing nearly 50% of New Zealanders in what I would call an MSM Stalag of cultural hatred.

  18. save nz 18

    Gower is really is rabid. +100 John Key must apologise!

    Wow, it only took 2 years for Key to take NZ from 1 to 10 in the global social progress rankings
