John Key is my shepherd, I shall not want,
He leadeth me beside still factories and abandoned farms,
He restoreth my doubt in the Te Ngational Party,
He annoiteth my wages with tax and inflation and emissions fees,
so expenses runeth over my meagre income.
Surely poverty and hard living shall follow the Te Ngational Party,
And I pray for the dole and live in a rented house forever.
5000 years ago Moses said, pack up your camel, pick up your shovel
and move your arse and I shall lead you to the promised land.
5000 years later, Te Hone Key says, lay down your shovel, sell your
camel and sit on your arse. This is the promised land.
This year, Key will take your shovel, sell your camel, kick your arse
and tell you he has sold the promised land to China.
I am glad I am a Kiwi, and I am free, I wish I was a dog and that Key
was a tree!!!
With Te Ngational in power we don't have a prayer!

Yogi - there is a chance, that John Key will take up some useful advice from the Savings Working Group (such as compulsory savings), giving him the "ammunition" to overrule National's libertarian wing on that issue.
The only chance to compete with National then for other parties, would be to come up with better compulsory savings schemes than what John Key might offer.

You are right there, I heard the poem about Muldoon and about Bolger but it is just as true for John.
I have the feeling, that at this election the party(ies) with the toughest
deficits fighting policies will win the election, and the ones with the biggest "give me more" demands from government will be the losers.
How can it be otherwise with our alarming budget deficits?
