The hapless polar bear that emerged during the recent TVNZ You-Tube leaders debate has resurfaced to issue a plea to Prime Minister-elect John Key. “The planet is on the slide due to climate change,” stresses the bear. “Me and my ilk are like canaries in the coal mine. But by-God we’re not the only canaries.”
Having left the confines of a suburban pool somewhere in Grey Lynn, the displaced bear now seems to have found itself a headquarters in the city.
It urges Mr Key that he use his new position to help save the climate; otherwise it’s over rover for polar bears and Parnell.”
