And this is just from one news outlet. Stuff, the Herald, RNZ, TVNZ – they’re all focussing on what’s making Key looking like a fool. They aren’t interested in hearing what National has to say about anything until they fess up. Nine days from an Election, now that’s a spectacular agenda setting fail. Who’s advising Key’s campaign, Melissa Lee?

    What the hell. None of this is going to give many votes to Labour. But it will give votes to NZ1 and the Greens. And many soft National voters are just not going to bother to turn up.

    [lprent: How about making up your mind on which handle to use (out of the four or so that I seem to have seen). They are all the same name with different middle names and spacings. But you are inconsistent on their use – which means that a moderator has to release you from the first time commentator trap. Because of my operations background, I don’t tend to pander much to others creative instincts, instead I have a strong tendency to eliminate factors who cause me excessive work. ]

    • One of John Keys favored few I presume, one who will go into the polling booth and tick National because you say ‘I care only about myself” in which case you forgo your right to ask anyone else in this country to care about you.
