  1. Winston Smith 1

    Yes especially when you look at the opposition

    • Tigger 1.1

      Because the Greens are well known as huge liars…

    • Matthew 1.2

      Typical response from someone with nothing to bring to the table. “The alternative is worse” … So tell us, how is the opposition worse?

  2. BM 2

    A hell of a lot more than Russel the Ocker communist and Dave “who got their arm up my arse” Shearer.

    Key’s got many strings to his bow and can adapt well to any situation, that’s what makes him so good.

    • framu 2.1

      “many strings to his bow”

      yes i agree

      disrespect for democracy
      high stakes gambling
      ignorance of legislation

      and on and on it goes

      • BM 2.1.1

        An impressive list of skills.

        On another note, I don’t remember him getting dressed up as Ronald McDonald, when did he do that.?

        • framu

          good to see your not disputing the list

          ronald mcdonald? – what?

        • Sable

          Every day when he goes to work BM. Different suit, same clown….

        • bad12

          When didn’t He??? this whole administration has been one big clown show from the start, unfortunately behind the doofus and goofus masks are a bunch of cynical liars busily bankrupting the Treasury while selling off our freedoms faster than i can say bulls**t…

        • halfcrown

          “On another note, I don’t remember him getting dressed up as Ronald McDonald, when did he do that.?’

          No, but I do remember a photo of him in Mc Donald’s asking the customer’s would they like lies with their burger.

      • BrucetheMoose 2.1.2

        Don’t forget his skills in truly awful jokes and comedy routines that make your skin crawl. I reckon when he retires from being PM, he and Banks should get together and do a comedy duo. They could call it the Two Johnnies.

    • Sable 2.2

      Yes (B)ullshit (M)erchant everyone who is on the left is a “dirty Commie”. Don’t you ever get tired of your own patter.

      • Tim 2.2.1

        Anyone know if his mum is still alive alive o?
        I’ve never really forgotten the hard luck spin and bullshit when he first came to office….
        all that solo mum state hess doing it tuff shit. That was acutally some REAL spin when you consider all the other solo mums in state hesses sending their kuds to ChCh boys hoi instead of Croists.

        I’m hoping someone has had the foresight to preserve JK’s outhess bog down the garden path, past the vege patch. Oh JK – you mean you didn’t go through all that?
        How about walking 5 mile to school everyday and 5 mile home with only cardboard protecting you from the holes in your soles.
        One big gigantic hole in your soul more like it!

    • paul andersen 2.3

      you sir, are a dickhead. do you actually know anything about communism? or is everything you know about communism learned from parroting silly rightwing slogans?. why dont you do yourself (and everybody else) a favour and do some reading and learning before you post again.

  3. karol 3

    nope – never trusted him – not with the country, the government, my bank account, a used car, a broadband network, trade negotiations, NZ’s social security system, ACC, public health care, public education, the media, workers’ rights….. the list goes on.

    Always came across as a con man to me, and status-seeking competitive ego, who wants to be top dog, whatever it takes.

  4. bad12 5

    i trust that once given the kick that particular Slippery little Shyster will pack His carpetbag and scarper leaving the country reeling with an empty bank balance and a mountain of debt…

  5. Nick K 6

    You lot tried the old “this election is about trust” back in ’08 and it failed miserably. Since then, you have kept going on about dodgy John etc. Yet the Nats poll results have not worsened at all.

    But I guess you are right and the people are wrong. One day they will wake up and the government will be returned to its rightful place with the Left.

    In about 2020.

    [lprent: Banned for a week. Don’t ascribe intelligence to a machine. Read the policy. If you want to know about the intelligences who run this site, then read the about. You’ll note that each of the authors speaks for themselves.

    In fact take another week to buff up your intelligence about being unambiguous when attributing actions.

    And another week for using one of the stupidest trolling techniques there is – the non-directional accusation.

    Fuckwit trolling techniques from 2008 annoy me. ]

    • emergency mike 6.1

      No you’ve got it wrong Nick. This time it’s John Key saying ‘trust me’ re the GCSB bill. By my reckoning that would put the onus on him to show that he is trustworthy. Unfortunately Ol’ Brain Fade is deep in the red when it comes to his ‘trust me’ scorecard.

    • framu 6.2

      might have failed at the election – but been proven pretty accurate since.

      Why, even my life long national voting boss no longer trusts key any further than he could kick him

  6. Fred 7

    About as much as I’d trust these guys….


  7. tracey 8

    Framu. First paragraph plus 1

  8. Poem 9

    No and no one in their right minds would trust John key. A person would have to be insane.
