    I really enjoy Sharon Murdoch’s cartoons.
    When and where do you find them?

    Listening to RNZ this moring it appears more lies from John Key relating to Mike Sabin’s hasty exit from parliament. Now that he has distanced himself from disgraced Sabin is he talking.

    So according to Key he ‘only’ found out in December, after the election, about Sabin’s being in minor (serious) trouble. I call that bullshit because insiders seen Key and his cronies acting strangely towards Sabin during a election forum. Sabin had enough enemies within the local Nat’s that word got out. Small towns people talk, someone said to me over Xmas that a by-election was imminent. The media need to hound the local Nat executives as to what they know.

      The media will not hound Key.
      They have powerful owners who want Key to complete his agenda.

      • Skinny 2.1.1

        Key and his cronies got quite a hammering from a couple of local journalists during the election campaign. However your right word will come down from the top to drop it.

      Wasn’t there meant to be some kind of “no surprises” policy?

      If true, and Key had no idea, then he’s failed in his role as leader of the National party.

        He knew but it will not be able to be proven.

        The slippery one is good…very good at this plausible deniability caper, had years as a dodgy dealer to get that down pat.

    I’m curious. Is there anything in the public domain about what Sabin is alleged to have done?

    Skinny, you need to keep up mate, I gave you a heads up ages ago and I waited 3 weeks before I said anything on here. FFS. Read between the lines man.
