Default John Key looks pretty smug...

...for someone who has essentially failed to deliver with his policies for 3 years. Tax cuts for the wealthy and selling public assets during a recession isn't exactly the innovative policy the public had in mind. There doesn't really seem to be any organised plan they are working with, just a govern-as-you-go wing and prayer approach. Disapointing really, John Key remains as popular as his smug smile of course but it's difficult to see his policy direction now.

Snookered themselves.

I had high hopes, but he's been an epic fail as far as I am concerned. I'll admit I voted for him, but having found him to be an ineffectual, squirmy little twerp I won't be doing that again. Aside from the Squirm factor, the affected simpering lisp and the smug smile he's stymied by and panders to all those jokers in the ACT party. If you watch anything of Parliament TV it's like a day at Primary school and all one big laugh-a-day joke, taking the piss out of each other's hairstyle. He's coming to the end of his term and only has another six more months to glibly pass off anything wrong as being a legacy from the previous Government.

Sorry, I can't think of anything nice to say for Phil Goff either.

Agreed, but I reserve the right to change my opinion if someone else has a convincing musing. Goff is a smile shy meerecat but he may be the lesser of two evils.

I never got it about John Key and his lack of vision for NZ just confirms I was right. The tired, neo-con ideas need to go.

He gives his near $400k salary to charity because he doesn't need it.

Mr 'Stuggle Street' Key is worth something like $50 million, from earning obscene amounts of money overseas as a merchant banker.

Obscene? Really? If you want the best people in the public sector you have to pay commensurate salaries.

Isn’t Tony Blair working with some of his mates for a bank now as something of something-or-other and making a fortune.
