Classic Line From Paul Henry

Paul Henry's response to criticism he received over his "It was a moustache on a lady" remark on Breakfast:
"I certainly have no intention of apologising to people who have written in and complained. The key thing to me is what a fortunate life they must have that they can afford time and energy to complain about such an insignificant thing."
A fortunate life indeed.

Helen Bags Top UN Job

It's great to have a New Zealander in such a high position abroad. However if Helen Clark was really the most qualified person for the job you'd think the Labour website would list at least some of her achievements. Perhaps they couldn't think of any. The former Finance Minister's profile is also blank - apt none the less.

An astute column ....

... by Mark Latham believe it or not. 
Money quote:
 No one should underestimate the emotional side of politics. The Left in Australia has a history of hero worshipping that one does not find on the conservative side of politics.
Not Just the Left in Australia but world wide.  Just look at the Obama phenomenon in the USA & the fanfare which greeted Tony Blair when he was first elected.

Skynews AU: Interview with John Key




I’m just in awe of John Key at the moment.  He speaks with so much knowledge & authority yet so little pretence. 

Patriotism and pride in your country isn’t necessarily linked with who the Prime Minister is, but it certainly helps.
