And just back to Rocko's original point - how convenient is it to forget that Key donates his salary to charity, apparently picks up heaps of his expenses... etc
 
This was a beat-up from an desperate opposition in tatters and mediocre media with nothing much to report  - politics aside, I can't for the life of me see why anyone could get upset over the Prime Minister making sure he's as available for as many important events and functions as possible. Dammed if you do and dammed if you don't but good on him for what is clearly a full on commitment - bet he doesn't get much time for fishing!
Never, never ever give up!

Heated seats on Crown limos, chopper rides, BIG DEAL! Like as if JK is hard up for these things. Grunta is spot on; the opposition and media here is simply pathetic.

You all miss the point entirely. When this government is cutting costs in every direction it is not appropiate to do sh*t like this, it is hypocritical expecting everyone else to cut costs except them!
As for key donating his salery, he earns more than that in a month from his other interests and once he's finished as PM will never have to work again.
Still just what i'ld expect from nat supporters with your  couple of rental properties and family trusts!Wink

Sure, our Prime Minister should've ridden a bike to Hamilton and handwritten a special card for the other event he would've missed.
 
I think it's pretty obvious who's missed the point Terry.
Never, never ever give up!

grunta there is no reason to take a helicopter. there was no great rush he could have driven like most people do. This is not America or Australia where the distance is an issue. Key is just a face who wants all the perks and fun he can get!! This is not the actions of a resposible government but then again we are in NZ!1
When you go to a government department for something and its not there as its a "thing thats nice to have" but not what this government wants to pay for let me know! especially when its your mother wanting a wheelchair or the like!
 
you also mention that is great that he attends important events etc...what like the hamilton V8s and a christian music festivals? your on crack right?

Ah Terry, you are so far of the mark its amusing.
 
There is every reason to take a helicopter. He is the Prime Minister, with the baubles that office holds he go where he likes how likes. Thats what the public of NZ offered him when we voted him in. Do you seriously think that a family man who has done incredibly well as a business man all over the world is going to these events 7 days and nights a week for " perks and fun".
 
How can you belittle him for being successful? If everyone in this country had the drive and ambition to succeed like he does and has then maybe we could afford more of the 'nice to haves'?
 
With the things going on around NZ at the time he was exactly what we needed as a leader - public facing, honest and open - everything that the opposition aren't, and certainly weren't when they were in power.
 
Sorry you have had a bad experience somewhere along the way Terry but Govt depts need to draw a line somewhere otherwise we will continue to have the bloated public service we are now cutting down after so many years of self service.
 
My bit over.

jimmy i didnt belittle him his success! he has definately come from very poor beginnings and worked for what he has!!
it does not change the fact he is a very very wealthy man and he leaves polotics will earn much more on speaking tours and the like.
he is going to these events for self promotion plain and simple so he's not fooling anyone!! and him going where he likes when he likes how he likes is NOT what the public offered him when national was elected.
As for bloated public services..my god do you have any idea at all what these services provide? all the services being cut have always operated within their budgets and provided good service. If key is re elected and he then has the magic word of the moment..."mandate"there will be wholsale changes and privatisations as they have already hinted at!!
Just because the last government was slack is no reason to excuse this governments actions.

interesting comments today by Philly Goffs mates
Knocking National for the BMW deal again and slagging the BMW people under palimentry privilages.
Then having Key answer them on radio.
Difference was that Goffs mates cant be sued but Key can.... wonder whos telling the truth.
On the same topic, Labour signed and arranged the BMW deal while they were in power
I wish we had an opposition

Yes certianly a crock alrite...
Just pleased that they labour has 2 supporters

English pissed me of tonite when asked, are parliamentarians going to cut their tax payer funded supper when they cut the Kiwi saver, Answer as expected NO. I see that for $1.00  they contribute the tax payer puts in $2.50.
Hardly fair is it.

Make that 3 labour supporters.His security entourage went on holiday as well. Security more than half over his budget.And Jimmy James where in the manifesto does it state that we voted him in to take helicopter rides?
Give Aunty Helen her due.When she went on holiday it was all private.Key is a show off who once compared himself to Obama.Not even close where brain matter is concern.
Key is regarded as the joker amongst world leaders.This country is going to the dogs and people is to blind to see the effect of the current mismanagement in government.no wonder our people is leaving in droves to Aus.

Maybe if the Labour party never bought votes with things like abolishing interest on student loans, or bringing in working for families, or buying back a broken arsed railways, or the Greenies stop hugging tree's so the gov can get minerals.
Trouble with this country is the harder you work the more your punished to support lazy arsed people who will not try to even try.

WFF is a good thing if given to who it was intended for.Too many rich people has abused it because it is /was badly administered.Don't tell me that you have never received WFF, because it is refunded as part of your tax refund.Any tax payer is entitled to it.Even you worksux.I'm sure you have received it without you even knowing you didBig smile

Does the government need to make cutbacks in services etc? Probably.... how much damage has been done in this chch eq? That has to be paid for from somewhere.
Did Helen have protection when she went on holidays? I bet she did. It is like Labour saying she never had any in parliament.... but then there came that whole string of pics of Uncle Helen in parliament with her minders in the background.
Did dip. protection go over budget. Yep. Is that good? Nope. Did they ever go over budget under Labour... yep, in fact more so. Oh how soon Labour hopes we forget!
Is the economy in the loo.... quite likely. Why? Too small a population and too much infrastructure and welfare needs to be shared around. Will increasing the basic wage help? Nope. It just means more small businesses will either go under or stop hiring.
We look with jealousy at the prosperity in Aussie, and rightly so. However, their wealth comes from mining the huge natural resources they have freely to hand in that vast continent. That is what is propping up their whole economy. If they were no longer allowed to mine ores, then I wonder how long they would last before the effluvula impacted the oscillatory ventilation aid.
We in this wee land are not allowed to even know what may be here, oh dear no precious!
