Tony Abbott Appoints John Key As Minister For Women

NZ PM JOHN KEY MELBOURNE

In an unprecedented move, Prime Minister Tony Abbott has decided to appoint his New Zealand counterpart John Key as the new minister for women.

Mr Abbott said after watching John Key’s expert and tactical handling of the NZ ponytail affair, he was the perfect man for the post, which until now had been held by the PM himself.

Mr Abbott said his replacement was perfect for the role, saying: “You have to give it to Mr Key, I think he handled the ponytail affair like a true professional.

“The girly in question obviously had a hidden agenda, Mr Key had already given her two bottles of wine and a generous tip and she still spilled her beans to the media, obviously this young lady is a feminist trouble maker and we hope that she gets the medical help that she so obviously needs.”

When asked about the ponytail incident, Mr…

The 4 ways John Campbell took a cheeky stab at PM Key last night

And a jolly good show it was. Marvelous.

[Insiders]

1

The TV ratings are in and Campbell Live is continuing to perform well above average. 264,000 was the number of televsion sets tuned into Campbell’s 7pm show last night – that’s slightly less than the more than 300,000 tuned in on previous nights this week following rumours the show was due for the can.

And just days ago Prime Minister John Key stunned many with his claim Campbell Live was purely “entertainment” with no public service value, a claim strong refuted by Campbell who shot back saying the program has never been, and never will be about profit.

Fans were quick to slam Key, pointing to Campbell’s fundraising through the show which now numbers well into the millions of dollars. Benefactors have included earthquake victims, cyclone victims, impoverished children and the sick.

Struggling people in need of help. Something only the Prime Minister must find entertaining.

But Campbell was not…

Either way, John Key is a liar. It’s hightime someone called him out on it.

Every time I read a story about Key lying I cringe. I cringe because the caliber of this man was there, ready for the exposing back in 2008.

One week before the election Key’s 1991 statement to the Serious Fraud Office investigation into failed corporate high-flier Equiticorp surfaced. Key had been interviewed by investigators and went on to corroborate the information an ex-colleague had given to the inquiry. This colleague/friend was facing fraud charges and Key’s statement, parts of which are now a matter of public record, confirmed the two had met for lunch on a particular date, and during that lunch meeting another event (of interest to the investigators) allegedly happened. Despite there been an issue with the date, but both men where steadfast they were remembering it correctly because the date was “Key’s farewell”. Key, they alleged was leaving one company for another and they were celebrating his last day.

However this timeline conflicts with media reports from February 2008 that discuss at length Key’s working relationship with infamous currency trader Andrew Krieger at this new firm. Key’s ex boss, Gavin Walker, discussed at length this relationship, as did Key himself, telling journalists’ he could recall his first phone call with Krieger, where the New York based trader asked him about New Zealand’s GDP and monetary supply. Walker told John Roughan, for his book “John Key: Portrait of a Prime Minister”, he gave Key a list of top clients on Key’s first day, of which Krieger was one of them. Krieger himself though resigned from the firm some six months before Key told SFO investigators he started with the firm. Krieger, not only resigned from the firm six months before, he removed himself from the currency markets altogether two months before Key’s SFO statement alleges he started with Krieger’s firm.

What is most disturbing about all this is not that Labour’s Mike William’s was pilloried for trying to uncover information about the SFO Equiticorp investigation, accused of dirty politics, although that was pretty disgusting in itself; rather, instead of investigating the discrepancies in Key’s statement, his SFO statement was used as ‘proof’ he was telling the ‘truth’.

I ask you New Zealand, if Key’s SFO statement is not a fabrication, then his relationship with Andrew Krieger is, and if his relationship with Andrew Krieger is true, the his statement to the SFO a lie.

Either way, John Key is a liar. It’s hightime someone called him out on it.

Yours sincerely, Enough.
