    But……..but he`s not Prime minister ……yet.

    • Trần Sơn Hải

      will never be.

  • OT Richter

    Is that his ‘I’ve got JK backed into the glory hole over GCSB’ look?

  • Ronnie Chow

    This Scotsman of the McInnes clan can thank his immigrant genes for his cleverness and staying power .

    • blokeintakapuna

      Supposedly – he’s half Scottish and half Irish. One half loves getting pissed, the other half hates paying for it…

      • Euan Ross-Taylor

        Which half is Maori?

        • Donovan Jackson

          Half Scottish, half Irish, half Maori, half not good at fractions.

  • If the wig fits…

  • Donovan Jackson

    ‘Hang in there, buddy’. Vintage.

  • Euan Ross-Taylor

    Winston in one of his rare wiser moments – he has his mouth shut.

  • Agent BallSack

    You cant help but have just a teensie bit of grudging respect for this guy. He may be a royal pain in the ass but I would say he would be getting close to one of our longest serving MPs in various guises.

    • Euan Ross-Taylor

      Agreed; his ability to keep his trotters in the trough, is an amazing talent, but for me this does not reach the level of ‘respect’.

      and cockroaches are said to be able survive the nuclear blast radiation.

      • Agent BallSack

        Funny that you should mention that. I also thought of cockroaches when typing that post. Just wondering though – is there anyone else left in parliament that served under Muldoon? for a geriatric old pisshead he’s certainly made it hard for a lot of MPs.

        • johnbronkhorst

          Given his chance he’d make it hard for the rest of us!

      • steve and monique

        And will still live for a couple of days if they lose their heads.

  • Patrick

    Somewhere out there are twats that vote for this prick, thus keeping him at the trough & subjecting NZ to years of his destructive “it’s all about me” politics. Wise up muppets & cut the charlatan loose.

  • Agent BallSack

    This guy could still make up part of the next Government so I wouldnt be too quick in dismissing him. JK hasn’t ruled out working with him if he needs the numbers. Once again Winnie is kingmaker.

  • johnbronkhorst

    AAAHHH I know where the $180 000 went!!!! From the look on his face, he ate it!
    That’s how he gets his policies, in 24 hours he thinks he will be pulling $100 bills out of his arse!

  • Brian of Mt Wellington

    Peters is the only MP I know of that could crawl underneath a worm with a top hat on. How would he get on if there was a disease called ” The Pinocchio Syndrome ” and he had it.

    • johnbronkhorst

      Stand upright, with his umbrella open and walk under a snakes belly?
      Write, legibly, all of his morals on the back of a postage stamp, leaving room for his signature and address!

  • Mediaan

    That radiant smile. Those quick-draw sage legal points. His adroit choice of words. His McCarthyist skills with time-sensitive suggestions that he alone holds the knowledge of a giant scandal that will shake the country to its foundations.

    Really, where would parliament be without him? Even semi-comatose from liquor, he is good value.

    • johnbronkhorst

      Good value….at a comedy festival perhaps, but running the country, he would just be down right dangerous.

  • Bad__Cat

    A legend in his own mind.
