So I reckoned the election would be in July.
That’s because July would have been a good call. And I thought Key and his wee crew were good.
Turns out they’re locking in November 26.
That’s a big mistake, he would have had the opposition on the ropes if he’d called July or earlier – instead they’ve got nine months to dig away at the government.
I guess the pundits will go on about what a bold move it is and how Key’s rewriting the playbook and blah blah blah. But a stupid political move is a stupid political move no matter how you sell it.
And today we saw a stupid political move from Key.
