    We need someone on da inside to transfer NZs assets to us, any suggestions?

  2. ianmac 2

    Who do we know who is very consistent/inflexible in last century dogma and can be relied on to promote/action failed economic policies?

  3. Can capitalism survive?

  4. Bill 4

    Since when did ‘over-sized canary wings’ sound anything like ‘concrete boots’ ya deaf old b’stard?

    brash is a nutbar witha lot of money or at least knows a lot of people with a lot of money.
    he is just shilling for them.
    i.e. making sure the value of their bonds and other investments does not decline over time.
    to this end its anything goes as far as he is concerned when it comes to bashing up the real producers of societys values.

    Mickeysavage ?

  7. r0b 7

    What party political leader was forced to resign in disgrace after their odious electoral tactics were made public in the book The Hollow Men?

  8. How can we best convey our utter desperation and the fact we’re entirely bereft of new ideas?

    What would Michael Corleone’s nickname have been if the opening scene of the movie had of been of him poisoning the wine at the wedding?

    Who can National use to distract from their incompetence?

  11. Pete 11

    What party leader will soon be Minister Of Finance?

    • ianmac 11.1

      Key @ Question Time today said ” Don Brash will not be Finance Minister in my Government, before the Election.” ????

      • Lanthanide 11.1.1

        I wonder why he’d even need to say that, since he isn’t a member of parliament and therefore can’t be a minister anyway.

        Maybe it was to re-assure the slowpokes in the National back benches.

      • Pete 11.1.2

        The qualification tells us all we need to know.

        Act will poll over 5%. Not sure about the Greens, however.

        • Colonial Viper

          Act will poll over 5%.

          Yep. Taking every single vote from National to build up their own total.

    • lprent 11.2


      Ex-party leader yes = Double Dipton.

  12. M 12

    Who wants to roger the poor even more than Rodney?

  13. M 13

    “To win the final of Mastermind: who in 2005 was exposed as the ultimate hollow man, had a fondness for the word ‘frankly’ but could only ever begin a relationship founded in dishonesty, thought indigenous rights were a crime against humanity and assumed poverty was some role playing game?”

  14. William Joyce 14

    The US actions gives Don an idea on what to do with Rodney

  15. vto 15

    This is just silly.

    Don Brash is no answer so there could never have been a question in the first place.

    oh, wait, wait, thinking… If Don Brash is the answer then there is one question it could have been… Who is New Zealand’s answer to Donald Trump?

    ha ha ha ha ha (excuse me laughing at my own jokes).

    • McFlock 15.1

      “err what I, uh meant I would like to say is that my good friend Roderick – it’s Rodney? sorry – my good friend Rodney is, and without beating about the bush here, um, and this is just the will of the membership and people of New Zealand, I think he’s a very capable leader and is, as I said, my good friend, um, no longer operating in the particular capacity of, um, working for me.”

  16. Who would be the best test of just how big the media’s memory hole can be made?

  17. Armchair Critic 17

    who let the dogs zombie out?

  18. ropata 18

    Who will best represent our core constituency (multinational corps), asset strip the local yokels, and blame the poor for their misfortunes?

    My Dad, was a rad, it was Hellish!
    It was Hayek whose words I’d embellish.
    When they said I was hollow.
    In self pity I wallow.
    ‘Coz it’s democracy (corporate) I relish.
