PM John Key will not be going to Waitangi after all.
Initially he didn’t seem to want to go, then his advisers appear to have convinced him he’d look like a wuss if he didn’t. Now he has chickened out altogether. Say what you like about Key, he’s no fool; talking face to face with real Kiwis is not his go. He’s much better at talking at us, and especially talking down to us.
The official spin is that he didn’t want his freedom of speech curtailed. Ironic on a day when he signed away some of our democratic rights, aye?
John, you’re a coward and a disgrace.
