New Zealand’s economy, Christchurch, Pike River, Rena – all terrible disasters to befall our country and our Government. It’s a massive challenge to respond well to such crises, and nobody really expects a magic wand, but we do have a right to expect some kind of competent, coordinated and decisive leadership response from our Government.

Key loves the photo ops, but when it’s time to step up to the plate – when leadership is really important – the bugger’s consistently
I’m happy to stand corrected if any of this Government’s supporters would like to step up with any evidence to the contrary.
