Needs a caption?

From the Flicker pages of William Joyce, we have this cogent visual comment on Murray McCully.

It has been suggested that when it comes to diplomacy, New Zealand’s Foreign Minister and Minister for the Rugby World Cup, should take sometime to learn the skills necessary for someone in his position.

His attitude to changes in the plan for the development of Queen’s Wharf was not to negotiate but to “spit the dummy” and insist things be done his way or he would take his party to somewhere else.

The cartoon is great, but I think that the caption could do with a bit more work..

    Perhaps he could seek advice from Trevor Mallard on how to improve his communication skills.

    Oh and if you wnat a caption how about this.

    “Auckland ratepayer, having completed his voting, demands immediate penetration from the next council”

  4. You want a caption for Murray McCully’ cartoon;-

    “We are the Authoritarian Daddy round here, so you will do as you are told, until the rights to you are sold”.

        Have you ever looked closely at his lips?? First time i met him was in Wellington when he started a PR firm in the mid 70’s … his lips bothered me then and thats just plain scary considering the age i was.

        Its like looking at a shrivelled nectarine.

        But i digress and im starting to become offensive again.

    If you put your ear right here… and listen very carefully… you can hear the sound of the ocean washing away John Key’s hopes and dreams.

      Feck he is indeed wearing Winnies hairpiece…… good spotting.

      Obviously some strange amalgam of Winnie, McCully and a desire to join the rainbow Labour faction.

    At the end of the day
    He’ll have his own way
    With ideas that do come
    From his rather big bum
    The arse end of a cliche
