Twerking For Daddy

As if the second round of booing in a week wasn’t bad enough, John Key got royally trolled by a young BGO attendee on Instagram. Then the Herald bizarrely decided her selfie of the PM with his hand tantalisingly close to her hair was a genuine BGO good news story. But wait! There’s more!!!

NRT: What is the Prime Minister trying to hide?

Written By: - Date published: 3:27 pm, June 23rd, 2015 - 20 comments

You have to ask why Rachael Glucina departed the NZ Herald for National’s beneficary and friend Mediaworks. No Right Turn has been trying to find out how much contact John Key or his office had with Glucina when she did the dirty and unprofessional interview with the victim of John Keys ponytail pulling. Why he still illegally trying to cover those contacts up?

Reid Research Poll: Nats, Key slump.

NRT: An abuse of the OIA

No Right Turn points out that the answer given by John Key in response to an Official Information Act request was completely inadequate legally. It doesn’t matter if he was in his guise of the infamous Parnell Pony Puller, or PM as he sometimes likes to call himself. He isn’t allowed to advise Rachael Glucina of the NZ Herald to attack his victim and then hide it behind his official role.

Creepy Key has dodged a question from the Green Party about any contact he may have had with the New Zealand Fox News Herald in the lead-up to Rachel Glucina’s hit job on the cafe worker who’s ponytail he pulled.

McCready back again on Key’s harassment

Written By: - Date published: 9:23 am, May 15th, 2015 - 22 comments

I’m all in favour of holding Key accountable for his actions in general, but not when the victim herself has asked McCready to desist. McCready should respect her wishes.

McCready case thrown out

Given that Amanda Bailey asked McCready to withdraw his case, this is good news.

Pulling ponytails and calling people names – I guess it’s true, the PM is 11 years old.

Very wise of Bailey to dissociate herself from McCready, and make her own decisions about prosecuting Key.

“I’m a friendly guy that likes to interact with the public. I do like to have a bit of a laugh and I’m probably the most casual Prime Minister New Zealand has had.”

John Key’s week has turned from drama to farce. David Brent looks good next to this clown.

Pull the other one… ponytails, minimisation and male privilege

From pulling ponytails to police minimisation, there is a deep problem in our country with attitudes towards women and to sexual violence.

Abusive and creepy

Of all the ways Key could have shot his leadership and his legacy in the foot – this really was the stupidest.
