    …but even Murray’s smoother than this.

  2. Peter Johns - bigoted troll in jerkoff mode 2

    diddums, at least he has a sense of humour unlike the authors on this site. This is a ‘The boy who called wolf’ site. Nothing Key, Nactional et al do is right in your eyes.

  3. MikeE 3

    The first and last time I’ll probably ever agree with the standard.

    Cringeworthy…

  4. Ron 4

    I thionk the cringiest bit is not the act of appearing on telly to be DL’s straight man but the way JK’s people and then the NZ media creamed their jeans over it.

  5. You can tell the Johnkey ‘gets’ America after all his years there.
    Unfortunately.

    captcha: learning.

    Ha.

    Not often I agree with a Standard post, but in this case…

  7. TightyRighty 7

    this is all just sour grapes really. and by doing the kanye thing, your just being as big of a douche bags as kanye was.

  8. outofbed 8

    I guess he had to do something to deflect from the B English rort

  9. Ron 9

    In response to the “It’s near Tasmania isn’t it?” He really shoulda said – “yeah – like the U.S. is just down from Ottawa. Easy in hindsight.

    Thank you John for introducing me to a truly new experience – being ashamed of my country.

  11. mike 11

    Thought JK was great, what a break for tourism in this country.

    And the day only got better after Sue did the honorable thing…

    Sometimes I despair

    ……and so, boys and girls, the rugged, anti-PC beer-belly boys now suddenly realised that all of their sputum-flecked fury at the wicked witch Helen had resulted in the election of “runs like a girl”: and that henceforth, their and their grandchildren’s fate hung delicately suspended in the soft, pink hands of a child.

      …….or to translate …… I hate John Key wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ! Come back Auny Helen.

    • felix 13.2

      I do hope someone is archiving all of your comments ak. Could be a good book or something in it, innit?

        • BLiP 13.2.1.1

          burt’s bedtime reading.

          • burt 13.2.1.1.1

            You keep referencing that book, over and over. Are you some Douglas stalker or are you just obsessed with his ravaging good looks and superior intellect?

            • Pascal's bookie 13.2.1.1.1.1

              “superior intellect”

              Heh. Good one.

              Tell us about his parallel tax system plan, intended to improve efficiency. Is that one in the book?

          • felix 13.2.1.1.2

            What is it with these ACT people and taxpayers’ money?

            First we pay to publish Roger’s fantasy novel, and now I hear that we’re paying for Rodders to do an international speaking tour, telling the world of all his glorious achievements (which so far seem to consist of losing weight and learning to dance).

            Why don’t they ever want to pay for anything themselves?

            • burt 13.2.1.1.2.1

              felix,

              Why don’t they ever want to pay for anything themselves?

              Douglas has indeed been a sneaky bastard enlightening us all that parliament has the most ridiculous allowances and entitlements. Douglas can stand proud that he has pointed it out with no more than the utterances already recorded within parliament.

              He is allowed to just publish a ‘collection of snippets’ as testimony to his time funded by you and I. A free market radical has published his utterances via public funding..

              How f-ing ridiculous is that. Strike the rule and let Sir Roger’s book be remembered for that ‘un-entitlement’ of the troughers.

            • felix 13.2.1.1.2.2

              Douglas can stand proud that he has pointed it out with no more than the utterances already recorded within parliament.

              Forgive my cynicism but what exactly has he “pointed out”?

              Have other MPs used this strange facility to publish their musings? If it was a problem which needed pointing out, why not just, well, point it out?

              It’s a bit like saying “English can be proud for showing us how easy it is to scam allowances”.

              And you know what the worst part is? He (we) is giving it away!!!!

              You’d think we’d be selling the bloody thing to cover the costs at the very least. Not so keen on market economics and user pays when he’s spending other people’s money I guess.

              Or is this what he means by the “free” market, perhaps?

            • burt 13.2.1.1.2.3

              precisely felix, it is so f-ing ridiculous, he must surely just be taking the piss. Either that ot he has finally lost his marbles and forgotten what he stands for.

              Just for clarity. What I think is ridiculous is this tax payer funded book of snippets, what Douglas has produced.

              Now think, how many MPs have published books, what did you pay for them? How much had you already paid for your copy?

              Douglas has made a point of explaining it is free, why did he do that?

            • felix 13.2.1.1.2.4

              Now think, how many MPs have published books, what did you pay for them? How much had you already paid for your copy?

              There are two questions I’d like to hear answers to:

              1. Is this a common practice by MPs? How often are we paying publish MPs books?

              2. If such books are sold, who gets the money? Do we get to recoup our costs at the very least?

  14. Leopold 14

    Is this a common practice by MPs? How often are we paying publish MPs books?

    2. If such books are sold, who gets the money? Do we get to recoup our costs at the very least?

    Well, Prebs and Mike Moore used to churn ’em out by the score – but at least you had to buy them…

  15. Adam Jarvis 15

    “Thank you John for introducing me to a truly new experience being ashamed of my country.”

    I’m right with you there. This made me cringe from start to finish. He’s out head of state for christ’s sake and there he was acting like a fool.
