Paul Henry finally gets some balls

The media is clearly tiring of John Key’s vacuousness. You know the tide is turning when even Paul Henry turns on the Nats.

I’ve embedded a two minute clip to show the tone of the interview. Here’s the link to the full piece.

    I must say – Key handles this unusually well fro him. He’s either had some training on defense interview tactics or has had a pre-interview briefing on question line and response. I’d suspect the latter – it would give Henry the chance to appear less partisan and Key the chance to remedy his burgeoning reputation as a man who can’t think on his feet. Win-win.

    You’re right that he’s a little better but I think he still looks pretty squirmy in the full 7 minute clip. He’s definitely getting training – the times he’s really fallen apart lately are when he’s been forced off-script – did you see his face this week during Ryall’s health policy release/trainwreck? My guess is that he’s @#$!ing himself about the prospect of facing Clark in the campaign.

  3. Policy Parrot 3

    TBPH – I think the Peters comment was an off the cuff remark designed to distract attention from the bigger issue:

    That National has moved its foreign policy in response to the view of the bulk of the electorate.

    And deflect questions about why it changed said policy.
