Back in the day National’s media and its social media were extraordinary. John Key flounced around, had selfies with drag queens, instagrams with school kids and mostly avoided the temptation of pulling their ponytails. People thought he was a bit of a laugh and National was OK and not at all scary like it used to be. And National won three elections in a row.
Then John Key decided to go for some unknown reason and Bill English took over. And Crosby Textor retreated. At least I presume so because from what I have seen recently National’s social media is about as inspiring as Theresa May’s speeches.
The above photo that I grabbed from their website is clear evidence of the decline in their social media. I cannot help but look at it and wonder What the Actual F&*%?
Because the photo is the perfect representation of all that is wrong with this Government.
Older white guy is having fun and remembering days of old. And hogging the bat.
Meanwhile young kids look on waiting for a chance, but the old white guy refuses to give them a turn. They can wait. When will it be their turn?
Michael Cullen famously said after that 2008 election loss that the feeling in the electorate was that it was time to give National a turn just like in beach cricket. Memo to Bill English, time to give our young people a turn. Time to go.
The picture reminds me of competitive dad cricket …
