In two days, John Key will be bouncing from cloud to cloud on his way back home from China.
With him on the plane will be a group of businessmen that Fran O’Sullivan (in shockingly bad taste) calls the ‘gang of seven’.
These include: the guy who got a 93% pay increase to $3.1 million but won’t pay his flight attendents fairly, the guy who wants to spend $2 billion building a plant to turn coal into petrol and wreck our environment in the process and Mr poisoned milk himself Henry van der Heyden.
After a week travelling with these geniuses I wonder what wonderful new hairbrained anti-recession idea Key will have when he gets off the plane – a swimming lane the length of the country? Tax breaks for the P industry? Soylent Green?
Whatever it is I guess it doesn’t really matter. English will kill it in a week anyway.
