In a media master stroke, The Herald ensured the antics of Labour's crazed party leadership and their hounding of John Key received maximum publicity - all of it adverse. The build up up yesterday was intense but last night the bomb exploded - right in their gormless faces.
Thanks to the umpire Charles Sturt who loudly shouted 'no ball' and to some immaculate stroke play from John Key who effortlessly knocked their amateurish googly over the ropes for six. He handled it superbly and as a result had added immeasurably to his mana and kudos.
Meanwhile the haggard harridan lied through her snaggled teeth again. "I had nothing to do with this." Come on Helen, are you or are you not the party's Chief Strategist? Nobody believes you were not right in there at the helm, pushing your party's only policy thus far released. You know the one? Your 'Get John Key' no matter what it takes policy.
What a hopeless pack of incompetent dunderheads. They can't even organize a decent smear campaign and they want to run the country? The same country they've already run into the ground?
