Desperate is as Desperate does

Yesterday I sat through an excruciating hour and half listening to Phil Goff parrot his strap lines like a poorly trained monkey.

When I made those 50 odd videos for the countdown, I got Goff’s mannerisms and speech patterns down pat. He hasn’t changed. Boredom was the reason I miseed this gem:

Labour’s not ruling out cutting a post election deal with Winston Peters and New Zealand First.

Phil Goff’s made the admission to Mike Hosking during Newstalk ZB’s leader’s breakfast broadcast this morning.

“Look, we’ll have a look at what the election throws up and who we need to talk to,” he says.

Asked if he did need to talk to Mr Peters, would he, Mr Goff replied “I haven’t ruled that out.”

So as we have known all along Labour are quite prepared to do a deal with the most corrupt politician in New Zealand history after Philip Field.

A vote for Labour is a vote for Winston Raymond Peters, 65, pensioner of St Mary’s Bay.

Phil Goff needs Hone Harawira, Winston Peters, the Greens and Peter Dunne to get across the line…maybe…depends on the numbers, right now they aren’t even close.
