Hilarious

Maybe Helen Clark should have tried this when she was getting stick over Taito Philip Field's antics:

Mr Key said [he] had not, and would not, read the police report.

The reason he hasn't and won't read it, of course, being that it makes quite clear that one of his ministers acted illegally and lied to him about it.  Makes me wonder what dirt Banks has on him - after all, it's not like a by-election in Epsom is something a National govt would need to worry about.

Key needs Banks and ACT to stick around and carry the blame for policies, like Charter Schools, that Key wants but suspects might be less than wildly popular.

D'oh! Thank you, I'd forgotten that one.

I suspect Key hasn't seen any damage to his poll numbers, so he sees no reason to enforce his mythical "higher standards" and will leave a lying crook in his administration.

Also there wouldn't be a by-election in Epsom if Banks decided to stick around in Parliament, something Key has no control over. Key's petrified of this happening. It's funny in a way, as he must be hating having to defend a lunatic like Banks. You reap what you sow.

Much ado about nothing. Why would the Prime Minister worry about the spurious assertions of an international criminal wanted by the FBI and his personal bodyguard. Its not as if Banks had received thousands of dollars to allow a criminal Chinese to obtain the protection of NZ citizenship at a specially arranged ceremony within the sacred environs of Parliament itself.

Milt/Judge ... Banks is damaged goods. He should stand down but that is not his style. One thing for sure, there is no way Nat loyalists in Epsom will be convinced to hold their noses a second time.

I expect to see a certain consistency when the report into Shane Jones is released.

At least with Banks he wasn't in Parliament at the time. Jones was of course a Minister and 'The Minister'.

"Why would the Prime Minister worry about the spurious assertions of an international criminal wanted by the FBI and his personal bodyguard."

You're talking about one of John Banks' close personal friends (even if Banks couldn't recall riding in his helicopter and taking $50k off him). And remember, "he has a wife!"

Anyway why are you reduced to smearing a successful businessman? I thought that was supposedly the preserve of the left. Envious?

Shouldn't be a problem, Shearer can refuse to read the report - that seems to work a treat.

Are Key and Klark part of the socialist hyperbole club where two faced lying- demented homosexual lisp sucking political correct Prime Ministers excel? Anybody who trusts these creeps probably will be that brain-dead they would join Peter Davis in a lewd public toilet experience eh Psycho Melt and big blouse?

Acted illegally? How so?

Psycho Milt said...

"Police have said local electoral laws were broken but they didn't have enough evidence to press charges."

And from the same report: "The police report proved he had broke(sic) the law over a donation of radio advertising, but could not be prosecuted because of a time bar."

Judge Holden said...

It's all ok if you don't get caught in time though, eh Nick? It's the higher standard Key promised us.

Nick K said...

Police also said David Bain was guilty.

Judge Holden said...

You shouldn't really be comparing John Banks to David Bain as if that helps your cause Nick (perhaps Ewan McDonald though). For a start Bain is comparatively pleasant, intelligent and articulate. And he was also acquitted, rightly or wrongly, in court. Something Mr "nothing to fear nothing to hide" will never be.

Can police tell me who killed the Kahui Twins bro?

Yeah right fuckwits!

Big Bruv said...

Come on now D4J. Our police are well aware (as are the rest of us) who killed the Kahui twins.

I am not sure why you are so bothered about the death of two Maori babies given that you are one of the more racist people who post here.

Our cops get it right 99% of the time, they sure got it right with you so perhaps you should cut them a bit of slack.

dad4justice said...

Got it right with me Graeme big blowhard blouse taylor ( used homo carsalesman type), Haha. Ask Amanda about that you pathetic cowardly cunt.
