The Media party are annoyed that their trip to India has been delayed…in Townsville. Audrey Young thinks John Key should be angry.
There are times when Prime Minister John Key is just too relaxed for words and today was one of those times.
“We’re a little disappointed,” he said when the breakdown of an Air Force Boeing in Australia forced the cancellation of the Mumbai leg of his trip to India.
“It is a little bit sub-optimal.”
This sort of laconic understatement might work in ads about Southern men to sell Speights or utes.
But not today. Key should be seething. The break down was unforgivable.
It’s embarrassing for New Zealand’s reputation as a can-do country.
Can’t even arrive.
