    So that’s why he thinks snapper quota is more important than the GCSB bill.

    • Anne 1.1

      +1

      Says it all.

      • Greywarbler 1.1.1

        Jokeyhen staring into tv cameras and not answering questions.
        No GCSB – I know my constituents, and they are not interested in this matter, they are practical people and what they are interested in is snapper.
        Snapper? What? How?
        Yes snapper (stutters but follows the delivery advice from advisors – just refuse to respond to questions by inserting your own choice of topic and stick firmly with it).
        The quotas and amounts they are allowed to catch is the real matter they are concerned with.

        What a red herring!!! So bloody blatant with it too – I am a rock star and can say anything and the girls will shriek! What a lot of male and female groupies.

        Rod Oram now saying what other country leader would apologise in another country for a fault of his exporters. He thinks that the Chinese would be alarmed as if Key’s apology indicated something more serious than already revealed. Rod thinks that either Tayro or Wilson Chairman should go. It seems to me that it looks as if Key is a flunkey of Fonterras if he goes.

    To some people it is.

    Personally I dont care about the GCSB bill. I dont care that the majority of people that were spied on were done by labour – I can appreciate why it happened.

    A lot of people (despite what a lot on here may think) feel this way. Its a non issue for me.

    Snapper quotas on the other hand … grrrrr. I really hope that they work on the commercial quotas and Foreign flagged boats also.

    • BM 2.1

      I agree:

      “Leave the snapper alone”

      Hopefully Key backs downs and listens to the people.

      • Pascal's bookie 2.1.1

        nah ‘three’ was always a false start. You fuckers’ll roll over and say ‘thanks daddy’ when he does you over though.

        • McFlock 2.1.1.1

          Yep – threaten three, “compromise” to seven, what a great guy he is.

          • BM 2.1.1.1.1

            It’s what’s being a great Prime Minister is all about.

            Float an idea, get feed back from the people and go with what they say.

            Democracy in action.

            • McFlock 2.1.1.1.1.1

              fuck you’re gullible. Key’s model is “threaten do something extreme so they thank you when you only go half way”. That’s not a prime minister – that’s a mugger.

            • North 2.1.1.1.1.2

              BM at 2.1.1.1.1 – “Democracy in action”. Even you don’t believe that BM. Worrying thing is that you don’t care that it’s not true. Cut the shit mate.

            • Tim 2.1.1.1.1.3

              Does the ‘B’ in BM stand for baiter? I suspect you’re simply an ideologically-driven fcukwit with limited powers of logic and an ego the size of a bus that delights in baiting people – simply as a way of exercising you’re ego. It’s just that I’ve watched your contributions in recent months and its hard to draw any other conclusions – oh …. other than you’ve probably got a small

            • Paul 2.1.1.1.1.4

              You really believe that, do you?

    • Pascal's bookie 2.2

      Classic Illiberal then?

    • ghostwhowalksnz 2.3

      The GCSB is probably spying on more people than there are recreation fishers reaching the daily bag limit

    • Tigger 2.4

      Thanks James. Interesting search history on your computer. Men in jackboots will be breaking down your day at 2am to discuss it with you.

  3. ghostwhowalksnz 3

    The medium is the message

  4. Sanctuary 4

    The deeper thing here is Key runs the country for his people, and who he thinks is “his people” is betrayed by where he appears in the “optional” media. Radio Sport’s audience is largely middle aged white jocks who think that having the option of working hard for sixty hours a weeks for $50 an hour net, owning a late model Hilux to tow your 7m fishing boat and spending three weeks over Xmas/New Year at a bach up north is just “living the average kiwi lifestyle”.

    The tragedy of our nation is the myth that this is an “average” lifestyle in an egalitarian land has attained the status of a religious talisman of national identity, when really it is the lifestyle of the top 20% in a country with huge income disparity.

    It is the central myth that allows John Key and the National government to claim they rule in the interests of “the average Kiwi”, which is why he spends so much time playing to his support base.

    • BM 4.1

      Yep NZ is now a meritocracy, 20 years of US influence has done that.
      National realizes that, especially Key.

      Unfortunately, The left is still stuck in the days of when the UK influenced everything and haven’t realized those days are long gone.

      • karol 4.1.1

        Key also likes to be seen meeting David Cameron and various UK royalty.

        Radio Sport callers are as likely to be royalists as pro US.

        I have listened to it in the past – I do also like to watch some sports and did like to play sport for fun in my younger days. But too many Radio Sport followers seem to think anyone outside a narrow demographic is not welcome – the standard line about “PC, tree hugging, hairy legged, sandal wearing lefties lesbians”.

      • geoff 4.1.2

        NZ is not a meritocracy. It’s an increasingly corrupt, right wing outpost, under the control of incompetent, selfish arseholes who love nothing better than to fleece the population to the nth degree.

      • Colonial Viper 4.1.3

        I don’t think word “meritocracy” means what you think it means.

        Yep NZ is now a meritocracy, 20 years of US influence has done that.

        You do realise the US is sliding backwards into a hole don’t you? Unable to maintain streets and street lights, having to layoff teachers and police?

        • Tim 4.1.3.1

          It’s a word he picked up at a Neshnool party sponsored seminar once teaching people how to be entreprenooooers and esprayshnul. Possibly even one of those real estate things.
          Oh, btw CV – he’s ‘considerably richer than you’

    • srylands 4.2

      “owning a late model Hilux to tow your 7m fishing boat and spending three weeks over Xmas/New Year at a bach up north is just “living the average kiwi lifestyle”.

      Yes it is average – or at least unremarkable in the context of a discussion about public policy. Owning a yacht and staying in a lodge is top end. But honestly a second hand boat and a bach are hardly luxuries. Totally unremarkable, and plain silly.

      • North 4.2.1

        Crap Srylands. Look around you and stop talking utter shit. The rubbish you come up with borders on the wilfully dishonest.

  5. Tiger Mountain 5

    Key is way more comfortable with backbuster ‘Vietchie’ and various other boofheads than with the wider New Zealand public let alone the more searching enquiries likely on RNZ.

    Snapper catchers are a small sub set indeed, symbolism aimed at the the tory turd and aspirational ‘other’ catchment. As a Far North resident there is much accuracy in Sanctuary’s comment above.

  6. Rupert 6

    Source? I don’t doubt that he’s been on Radio Sport more times than NatRad, but four seems a little light…

  7. Step Doh 7

    One thing that sits under this stat is that his apperances are mainly on The Farming Show, which is rural affairs rather than sport per-say, just happens to the broadcast on that network (which I think is more down to the wider reach of AM than anything else!)

    • Step Doh 7.1

      PS, not being an apologist for JK here, by the way, just thought the stat was a bit of an oversimplification.

  8. Scott 8

    With all due respect, Key had a regular slot on Radio Sport, talking about sport. The fact that he appeared 44 times is irrelevant.
    It’s definitely disappointing that the PM was only interview 4 times on National Radio – but let’s not jump off the deep end on these particular figures.

    • lprent 8.1

      I believe that John Key has been offered many more opportunities to do interviews on NatRad. He usually declines. The PM also seems to set the tone amongst his fellow ministers.

      They prefer to avoid current affairs programmes with intelligent interviewers and questions about policy. Instead they go for soft media who rarely understand what they’re mouthing off about. That is in questions like “what music do you prefer”, and they rarely ascend to asking him questions about what he is actually doing for voters.

      • fender 8.1.1

        Barely a day goes by without RNZ saying: when asked to comment PM Key declined to be interviewed.

        • Anne 8.1.1.1

          Correct. Its’ been going on for the past 3 years at the least. I had to laugh when he agreed to be interviewed by Kim Hill when she filled in on Morning Report a month or two back. I could sense the cogs turning over in his brain…”she’s a woman so she’ll be a pushover”. He’s such an ignoramus in reality, he probably didn’t know she is one of our most intelligent and incisive radio journalists.

          • Tim 8.1.1.1.1

            Yep! Oh how wrong he was. One roll of the dice too many. Is it any wonder he won’t go near anyone he thinks has an intellechool capabulty.
            Phil Stein, with a band of arse lickers watching his beck.

    • Lanthanide 8.2

      Don’t you think it’s important that the PM of a country spend their time running the country, not having a regularly scheduled appointment on a radio station to talk about sport?

      • BM 8.2.1

        In the old days radio was one of the only ways apart from news print to keeping the public informed, so had a very important role.

        Modern day, not so important, there’s a plethora of information around on what the government being up to what they’ve got planned, etcetera.
        People just have to be interested to take a look.

        I’d say the main reason Key appears on the radio is to have a laugh and show that the government is listening and working for the people of NZ.

        Radio sport provides that platform, radio NZ does not.

        • One Anonymous Knucklehead 8.2.1.1

          Information about what the government is up to and “what they’ve got planned, etcetera” is much easier to digest if you have the chance to hear an informed debate about it. Radio is an ideal medium for that debate.

          Oh, and get real, Key avoids informed debate because his word isn’t worth anything and his policies don’t stack up against the evidence; cf. Hardtalk.

        • Lanthanide 8.2.1.2

          “I’d say the main reason Key appears on the radio is to have a laugh and show that the government is listening and working for the people of NZ.”

          So Key goes on Radio Sport but doesn’t talk about Sport. Surprising. I think you’re full of bs.

        • Colonial Viper 8.2.1.3

          Questions on Radio NZ too serious and too critical for Key to deal with

          Shit’s getting real though, smile and wave isn’t going to cut it as a strategy in 2014

          • BM 8.2.1.3.1

            Exactly who’d want to put up with that sort of nonsense, especially when you’ve got choices.

            If Red Radio wants the PM on their station they’re going to have to be a bit more neutral.

            Maybe they should get Jim Hopkins to interview the PM, he’d do a good job.
            Both him and Key both like to crack a joke, it would be ratings gold.

            • One Anonymous Knucklehead 8.2.1.3.1.1

              What does that even mean? “Neutral”? Does that mean they shouldn’t subject Key to questions about his faith-based policies and flexible attitude to honesty?

              What part of “debate” don’t you understand?

              • fender

                All of it obviously. BM clearly sees the “mandate” race as the be all, end all. If you win the “mandate” you should just get a free ride for 3 years, no (hard) questions asked.

                BM, we don’t need a PM to “crack a joke”, there’s far funnier people around. Your idea of “ratings gold” sounds like propaganda to me.

              • BM

                Lets be honest, Radio NZ aren’t really big supporters of the PM.

                The main goal of any interview on that station would be to trip up the PM and try to make out he’s shifty, a liar etc.

                Sure he could go on radio to debate policy but he’d probably have to spend hours and hours brushing up on facts and figures and going over what he said to who ever.

                He hasn’t got time for that.

                • fender

                  “Sure he could go on radio to debate policy but he’d probably have to spend hours and hours brushing up on facts and figures and going over what he said to who ever.”

                  Exactly! Much easier to go on some shit sport station and just make shit up and not be questioned about the mis-information and lies.

                  “He hasn’t got time for that.”

                  Well resign then.

                • One Anonymous Knucklehead

                  So, first the benchmark is “neutral” but whoosh, the goalposts have now shifted to actual support.

                  The fact that they offer him airtime isn’t good enough eh. What other crutches does this fluffball need?

                • Lanthanide

                  “The main goal of any interview on that station would be to trip up the PM and try to make out he’s shifty, a liar etc.”

                  Um, yes. That was also the main goal of the station when they interviewed the former PM, Helen Clark. The interesting thing with her, though, is that she almost always fronted for the interviews, and was very rarely tripped up.

                • Magnus McManus

                  “Sure he could go on radio to debate policy but he’d probably have to spend hours and hours brushing up on facts and figures and going over what he said to who ever.”
                  That’s his fucking job.

            • North 8.2.1.3.1.2

              Hopkins…….that boring not-funny though thinks he is ACT prick ? Get real. All you’d hear on that interview’d be loud slurping and excited girly giggles.

            • Colonial Viper 8.2.1.3.1.3

              Don’t think you’re even in the same country as the rest of us. Ex National Party staffers run Radio New Zealand.

        • Tracey 8.2.1.4

          I agree with you that he uses it as a form of advertising for himself. It’s just he does it while we are all working and paying his wages, and other bills. It’s NOT what he was elected to do. He was elected (in his own words) to be transparent and accountable. When he speaks on Radiosport do they still run the ads for the mens clinic, the strip clubs etc???

    Is this true?
    John Key on Radio Sport in 2012: 44 times

  10. Rosie 10

    Key. Sigh. Some days he’s a little bit George Dubya, some days he a little bit Silvio Berlosconi. On any other day one thing he is definitely NOT, is a P.M capable of or inclined to have an intelligent discussion with state radio interviewers. Or anyone for that matter. That would be too threatening.

    Keep that BBQ hot John, keep that beer cold, and just hang on and don’t think too hard. Hawaii’s getting closer, day by day.

    • fender 10.1

      ” Some days he’s a little bit George Dubya, some days he a little bit Silvio Berlosconi. On any other day one thing he is definitely NOT, is a P.M ……….”

      Comment of the day for me so far, spot on.

      • Rosie 10.1.1

        Cheers Fender:-) He is though isn’t he? I thought after all these long years I’d be immune to his most royal cringe worthiness but it just, gets more painful as the days and weeks go by. E.G, Jenny’s point at 12 below……..

  11. alwyn 11

    I suspect that John Key goes where the audience is, and that means Radio Sport.
    Now please don’t take this as simply a case of “They did it to” but when Paul Holmes was on TVNZ Helen Clark would appear every time she could. On that station he had an enormous audience and it was worth spending her time appearing.
    Paul then switched to Prime, and his audience was essentially nil. Did Helen appear on his program? No way, it wasn’t worth it to her. Paul was apparently quite shocked that he was no longer the flavour of the month. He seemed to think people appeared on his show because they liked him.
    John Key is no doubt exactly the same. It isn’t worth it to him to waste his time on Radio National with its small audience when he can spend the same time on a show with a much larger set of listeners.

    • Bunji 11.1

      In New Zealand, Radio New Zealand National’s cumulative audience of 522,000 people makes it number one in terms of audience size nationwide. Its station share of 11% makes it number one in terms of station share in New Zealand (among people 15+, nationwide in the year 2011)

      (wiki)

      RadioSport’s share of commercial radio (excluding Radio NZ National / Concert) is 2.2% in Auckland, average will be similar nationwide (most places less, except Wellington surprisingly high 4.2%). Including RadioNZ, average will be ~2%.

    • karol 11.2

      Helen Clark also fronted up regularly to Radio National.

      Different audiences on Radio sport and Holmes on TVNZ – I would say Radio NZ had a far less diverse audience.

      And John Key turning down appearing on 3 News? Wouldn’t it have a big an audience as Radio Sport?

    • lprent 11.3

      Not exactly a small audience on NatRad. In actual fact it is the largest radio audience in NZ radio (and has been forever). Radio Sport has a teeny weeny (in all respects) audience by comparison. I guess that is why Key likes it.

      Perhaps you should actually read some viewer stats BEFORE making a fool of yourself?

      • Lanthanide 11.3.1

        I actually tried to find those stats and couldn’t, Lyn. I managed to google up some results from radio NZ that made it look like it only had 10% of all radio listeners at any time; I’d previously been under the impression that they had 50% of all listeners and the commercial channels divided up the rest.

    • Saarbo 11.4

      Yes I understand RNZ has the largest audience but suspect that Key/National know it tends to be the intelligent/left…not National supporters who are right and a bit thick.

  12. Jenny 12

    A few months ago I was changing stations on the dial, and by chance landed on 1ZB, to hear John Key say “Most Kiwis agree with me that saving jobs is more important than saving the climate.”

    Since he is doing neither, this statement has no validity at all. But knowing that he could get away with it on 1ZB was obviously tailoring his remarks to his audience.

    It is doubtful that Key could have got away with such irresponsible idiocy in any other public forum

  13. Richard Christie 13

    Gee, I didn’t know there was a radio station dedicated to sport.

    • Tracey 13.1

      It’s dedicated to people opining about cricket, rugby, league, rugby, motorsport, rugby and occasionally someone from another sport who did something world class… so it’s not really dedicated to sport.

      You can work out its demographic by its main advertisers…

      Mens clinic for vasectomy
      Calendar Girls
      NZ Girl
      Impotency supplements
      Wet n Forget
      (not sure if the last two are connected in some way)

  14. tracey 14

    Wait til customs or coastguard use the fisherfolks emails to fine them for exceeding their recreational snapper quotas

  15. BrucetheMoose 15

    You should hear him on More FM every other week trying to spread the ‘good’ word with waffle buddies Si and Gary. It is so cringy that you have to listen with a stick between the teeth. Pays to have a barf bag handy just in case.
