I didn't think this was fair on Key, so I thought I'd make a few brief comments:
- If you were in a plane, and planes all around the would started falling out of the sky, and then your pilot died, would you rather put someone in the seat with plenty of prior experience as a pilot? or would you think it sensible to blame the problem on all pilots and put someone with no experience in the job instead?
- All Kiwi's should want the country to do well - what is wrong with being aspirational and having a leader who wants the country to run profitably? I like the idea of sound business principles being applied on a country level so that we all end up wealthier. If Key has experience and a successful track record in maximising profit, then isn't that a good thing for us all?
- Would Key *really* be the *last* person qualified to run the economy? I suppose a P-addicted gang member could be more exciting...
- Is cutting political commentary really your skill if you use expressions like 'doubly especially'?
