Audrey Young and beautiful Sue 'Smacking' Bradford's dopey daughter leading the charge with a "General Not Quite" as expert witness have tried to suggest It is embarrassing for John Key that a troop carrying freighter, Boeing built, purchased used, from a Budget Airline was grounded in Townsville. That left the Prime minister led delegation to India stranded while alternatives were sought.
Young was of the opinion that Key should have been angry, what that would have achieved is a big fat ZERO.
The only embarassing bit for me was the entitlitus inspired whine that continued after the engines were shut down.
The remnant entity that was the once very proud and respected Royal New Zealand Airforce now a gutted skeletonised bunch of chopper pilots and a few others flying around in old largely superceded cargo planes have two ex passenger jets to move troops and light equipment from our lonely fixed carrier deep in the South Pacific where they manage to impress those intellectually equiped to understand such matters, perform astoundingly well.
Last time we endured a bunch of whiners complaining that a shoe string Airforce was in their over egged egotistical worthless opinion, inadequate, was a .recent junket to Fiji where "it does not matter what we do Frank is still in command" and someone who clearly had a wish to be given "penthouse" was forced to do what most New Zealanders do when on holiday, pee in a bucket.
Why a talented operator such as Key puts up with the third rate coverage the MSM deliver I have absolutely no idea.
When Savage led the first Labour Government to power as the great depression was preparing to meet the challenge of a resurgent Germany, his socialist colleagues believed that the than largely unsupportive mainly print media needed to be circumvented to get their messaage out.
The solution was to create a radio network where their people could control the message and it was highly sussessful.
So why Key perpetrates the fifth collumnists ability to spend their entire output in opposing the success that in almost all measurable indicees is apparent but burried under a landslide of negativity, is a total mystery.
Purchase or lease a lear jet type plane to carry the people he needs and leave the idiots masquerading as reporters to find their own resourced access to what ever they choose to create, then flood the media inboxes with an avalanche of government generated press releases and starve the morons of what they seek and leave them the minutiae they just love to wallow in.
A fleet of two planes found them selves forced to remain in Townsville and that is no surprise, shit happens.
My "fleet" of two well maintained vehicles and a VW Beetle are reduced to one functioning at present but then I am not trying to get to the Sub Continent with a bunch of free loading attention seeking dribblers from both sides of their mouths, whining about how unfair it all is.
