The same thing will happen to National at the next elections in 2014. I predict one of the biggest landslide defeats for National then - they'll be out of office for nineteen or more years. A weak-kneed John Key will quickly disappear from New Zealand politics in a vain attempt to protect his sullied reputation and struggle for some overseas economic post. Smile and wave has been seen for what it really is - pathetic posturing!
While on the subject of John Key, one has to question his credibility when claiming that New Zealanders are warming to the National Party government's privatisation policy, when a succession of polls and comments from many National Party members oppose the policy.
Many people criticise former PM Helen Clark, but she was a political heavyweight compared to this pompous pretender.
