Anyone with a brain has always known Key’s cycleway is a joke. The sick thing is he’s now using it as a punchline himself:

My Government has set about addressing these concerns and realising these aspirations step by step, policy by policy. We’ve cut taxes, upped the number of police on the beat, increased the amount of elective surgery being performed, introduced national standards in literacy and numeracy, accelerated new roading projects (not to mention a national cycleway) – Key
He promised us 4,000 jobs. Now he’s making a joke of his broken promise. ‘Remember when I promised you 4,000 jobs and you bought it? Ha ha! Suckers’
Is it disconnect or just sheer gall?
