Predictions results

Ok so here were my predictions from January…how did I go?

1. National Party MPs will cringe every time Hekia Parata is asked a question in the house, and will avoid being in the house when they know Hekia is going to be rinsed.

Went pretty much as predicted…and got progressively worse as the year progressed, saved only by inept Labour questioners who were more distracted by fighting amongst themselves over the leadership.

2. Nanaia Mahuta remains anonymous and never holds Hekia to account.

Yup, neither did anyone else which is bizarre because she is tits and a legend in her own mind.

3. Iain Lees-Galloway’s missus is still dirty with him every time he mentions a certain stenographer.

Not much has changed here.  

4. Nikki Kaye goes on a three day bender.

Pretty hard to go on a bender when one can is all it takes.

5. No one will miss Simon FIGJAM Power.

Who? Oh that’s right, the guy Judith Collins is having to spend time fixing all his screw ups.

6. The Speaker’s election is nowhere near as smooth as John Key expects.

Talking out of both sides of his mouth worked for John Key. The speakers job was stitched up but at the same time a couple of MPs learned not to trust the word of John Key.

7. Helen Kelly’s total shamelessness after the disaster of the Hobbit and the Ports of Auckland dispute means she runs for Rongotai.

Helen Kelly finally scotched rumours in November. Mainly because Annette King refuses to budge.

8. Russel Norman manages to get the Green Party membership not to do anything too stupid for another year.

Close, for Russel, but they managed to do Hey Clint, then use parliamentary resources to stitch up a referendum that didn’t and won’t ever matter.

9. National MPs work out that their vote is the one seat majority, and that John Key can stick it if he doesn’t like what they are up to.

This one was a bit premature…but the attitude is building.

10. David Farrar sees his willie for the first time in decades and celebrates by blogging about some boring subsidised liberal elite play.

God are we sick of the blogging about plays…and travel..still at least he can see his willie and I here he has given it a name.

11. David Cunliffe fails to muster 13 votes to trigger a leadership election and the base goes feral as they realise they have been duped.

Took a couple of attempts but the chosen one is now leader despite the best efforts of the caucus. He never did muster the necessary votes and it took David Shearer to do the honourable thing and quit for Cunliffe to get across the line.

12. Kim Dotcon finds that Kiwis support for him is about the same as a imported stool at the warehouse under his enormous weight and no one turns up to wave him good bye on his trip to the US.

We will have to wait until next year for the farewell party, meanwhile people are finally sick of his antics.

13. Parekura Horomia, Gerry Brownlee and Kim Dotcom sign up for the Fight for Life – Sumo edition, Approached have been made to Carmel Sepuloni or Carol Beaumont for the 4th spot.

Parekura unfortunately died while preparing sending a warning to the other big fellas who seem to have ignored it.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
