Quote of the Year: “Planet Key”

I don’t know what universe the panel is in, that judged the “zip it” one as quote of the year.  The political one that has been repeated most and spawned a load of images and comments, is surely “Planet Key”?

Metiria Turei turned the government’s Planet Labour jibe back on them in the House, and Key fell right in.  He described his planet which is completely out of touch with the reality of people  struggling in these difficult times.

 

And a load of images followed:body-planet-key.thumb

Surely it’s no contest!?  Doesn’t it sum up the Key government philosophy?

    I always though the quotes “Ha, ha we won, you lost” and “diddums!” will be more remembered…

      Diddums lives on Planet Key.
      – I also like Hodgon’s cartoon depiction in today’s Dom-Post of John Key as the fairy on top of the tree.
      Diddums lives in Fairy Land on Planet Key.

    No toilets on Planet Key?

    That must mean that there are no assholes on Planet Key. No dicks either.

    That must mean Key and cohorts are forever excluded from his eponymous planet!

    Truly paradise!

    Yes the PM has shown the nation he has a lack of intellect and finesse required for his job. But his whole Govt. is equally incompetent, and have all proven themselves to be aliens from either the same planet or one similar. The Mayan doomsday may have been a flop but this lot from outa-space are capable of calamity unimaginable when their dark planet collides head-on.

    “Zip-it” is just typical Tory bullying behaviour we see daily from baffoons like Brownlee, Joyce, Collins, Bennett et al.

    “Planet Key” would be a more worthy quote of the year. It sums up how our Govt. are behaving; in the interest of aliens hellbent on taking over humanity.

    Well said, fender V.

    I’d give “I don’t recall” an honourable mention.

    Agreed mike. And also honourable mention to Lockwood Smith for saying that trying to get the truth out of the prime minister is not something they do in the House.

    Rt Hon Winston Peters: Well, I seek leave to get the truth out of the Prime Minister.

    Mr SPEAKER: The member can seek leave only for a procedure of the House to be followed.

    Hon Trevor Mallard: I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker. The idea that you would indicate that getting the truth out of the Prime Minister is not a procedure—

    Mr SPEAKER: Order! The member will resume his seat. This is the House of Representatives. We do not need that sort of nonsense.

    I think Turei is falling into the same sensationalism as John Campbell with her $13.50 an hour toilet cleaning solo mum.

    It’s appalling that Bennett’s faux-westie bullying street-argot of ‘zip-it’ is judged to be ‘quote of the year’.

    Any hard-working courier, copper, paramedic, or nurse could come up with something more succinct, colorful, and apt than this prandially-challenged pen-pusher from Taupo.
