He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!

I know, I know.  It’s a bit early.  But it’s worth watching it again.  Apparently a PM hasn’t been thrown from the chamber for so long, if you don’t watch it, you may not be alive for the next time.  Like Haley’s Comet.

    And the media are all over this because somehow it’s more disgraceful than the likes of Mallard/Peters who get thrown out more in one year than all the times a PM has ever been thrown out.

    • R&BAvenger

      Lange and Clark were also thrown out – it’s not ground-breaking stuff unless you are a tinfoil hat wearing lefty.

      • Annoyed

        I love how they say it’s the first time in over a decade. Clearly, Key’s been in power for nearly eight years so a decade doesn’t really mean much.

        • Jonat

          Yeah, they might as well say, “It hasn’t happened since a lefty was a prime minister”.

    • ChrisM

      The media and the opposition parties have seized on a moment to get the boot in after being face palmed over two big issues in recent days; Panama Papers and foreign home buyers. Key was killing them. I would love to know what he continued to say. I assume it will be in the Hansard.

  • Curly1952

    Why would he want to stay in the house if the Shaw couldn’t/ wouldn’t accept his answer that Greenpeace are mentioned in the Papers when they patently are. He was trying to point out that just because a name is in the papers doesn’t make those people bad. I reckon he had had enough of them and thought” this is a waste of time, I’m out of here” and speaking whilst the speaker was on his feet was the easy out for him.

  • Keeping Stock

    Considering what some MP’s get away with on a daily basis (Winston, although he often pushes too far, Annette King etc) Key was a bit hard-done-by yesterday.

    But neither Little nor Shaw landed a glove on him yesterday, and they’re reduced to arguing semantics because there’s nothing of substance in the Panama Papers, despite the time and effort invested in the “gotcha”.

    Today though, Key is likely to face criticism for allowing Jordan to dump Fleur; it’s all the Left has left!

    • Nige.

      It was a soft ejection from a very over the top David Carter. I could almost feel his spittle hitting my ears through my headphones

      • Hard1

        Carter’s “Order” lasts for a microsecond. He lets King constantly interject. Not getting London must have rankled.

        • Aucky

          For sure. That’s the guaranteed knighthood down the gurgler just for turning up in London and more to the point he’ll be getting more than a little grief at home from the wannabe Lady Carter.

  • Beria

    Key had the legitimate complaint that Shaw had smeared Key and the whole country by repeating the anonymous, false assertion that NZ/Key controlled a corrupt tax system in the Cook Islands. Shaw’s only possible excuse is that he looks too stupid to know any better.

  • R&BAvenger

    Key was right to point out the blatant hypocrisy by the opposition, who are happy to smear law abiding NZers through their shabby political hit job. Mention that Greenpeace is listed on the database and everyone loses their mind.
    Mention that Amnesty International and the Red Cross are also named on the database, same result.
    No apology is required as it applies the same level of statement making by opposition politicians on naming individuals and companies who are also named or associated with the Panamanian law firm who were hacked (They fail to mention that). They are happy to name plenty of names themselves in the same manner and smear people’s reputation without foundation.
    Mojo Mather’s is a beneficiary to a foreign trust – that is a statement of fact, but in looney left stiyle white is black and the UK is not a foreign country.
    On lesson for Key is not to have his back to the speaker, so he can see when he is standing, and Bill English should do a better job of riding shotgun, if the PM is unsighted.
    Good on the PM for standing up for law abiding NZers who have done nothing wrong and pointing out the nonsense from the opposition. Shame he broke the rules of the House but Carter acted appropriately in enforcing them. Key should not back down from confronting these left-wing clowns with inconvenient facts aka the truth.

  • HR

    I think he wanted to be kicked out rather than have a battle of wits with an unarmed man. The PM was again assured, informed and able to think on his feet. I really don’t think it was a mistake he got himself ejected.

  • Alan Beresford B’Stard

    And he certainly wasn’t angry or out of control as alleged by Little and Shaw.

    • Usaywot

      No, I’ve just watched this. Key had his back to the speaker so couldn’t see. Far from key losing control, he was clear, measured, accurate and justifiably fed up with the questions.

    • Aucky

      A classic piece of hypocrisy coming from Angry Andy.

  • Lord Onerous I

    Loved David Seymours little burn too.

    • dumbshit

      Was waiting for Key to ask, after the supplementary, if that is “how it read”!

  • Usaywot

    Poor old Carter struggles as speaker. He doesn’t seem to have the natural forcefulness to keep control of the house. Key being booted isn’t a major. It will be forgotten by the end of the week except by lefties who will clutch it gratefully to their hearts.

  • Nige.

    The media party in turn have scored a massive own goal. “Those companies were involved in a scam” to which John Key replies “that’s just the point”.

  • Macca

    Of course the media are making a huge song and dance over this in yet another attempt to besmirch John Key. What they are not telling the public is the full context of what JK was saying and how utterly stupid he made Shaw look. No surprises there.

    If the MSM wanted to regain some semblance of credibility, the first thing they should do is rid themselves of every journalist involved in this week’s Panama yawn fest. Unfortunately it will never happen as their mentality is that these journalists deserve a promotion and a medal.

  • Mrs_R

    Any fool could see that JK had his back to the Speaker, so it seems some what unreasonable for Carter to expect him to have eyes in the back of his head. Totally over the top reaction by the Speaker, and in my opinion that action reflects poorly on Carter, not JK.

    • niggly

      Agree, and I can’t figure out why the Speaker, Carter, called for the PM to stop talking when he was allowed to talk in the first place.

      The other thing that seems wrong with these Question Time questions is that Shaw asked a question, received an answer from the PM, then got to ask more and more questions – how many questions can one person ask? By the looks – infinite! How odd when there are time limitations and other MP’s wishing to ask questions!

      • rangitoto

        From the NZ parliament website:

        “Depending upon party sizes in the House, the Speaker allows each party a “quota” of supplementary questions. Even if there are fewer than 12 questions lodged on a particular day the Speaker allows the same number of supplementary questions overall. Those questions can then be utilised by members of each party as they see fit. In this way parties choose how they wish to distribute their allocation of supplementary questions.”

        • Rick H

          It would seem to me that the only questions the Looney Lefts ask is the boring old “Does he stand by his statements.”
          This question is the only clue for the PM to research-up on prior to question time.
          They then ask a heap of “supplementaries”, none of which have been written for the public or PM to see, and this way, gives the PM no warning as to what the REAL questions re going to be.

          They believe that doing this, is really going to cause the PM to be “stuck for words”; or unable to answer – thereby making the PM look like he’s not up to speed.

    • rangitoto

      Yep. He was turned towards Shaw. Usually the speaker will call out “order” so the member speaking gets warning the speaker is on his feet. Not sure what Carter was up to unless it was planned.

      • biscuit barrel

        The Speaker said Order 3 times when he was on his feet. Key ignored him, sure his back was turned ( a mistake as technically you speak to the chair), but pretending he didnt listen ( the TV show doesnt show all sound) when he was calling order a few feet away.
        Plus Carter says he was warned the other day, and from memory Key is a repeat offender and is slow to sit down.

      • johnandali

        Perhaps the speaker had just heard that he won’t be the next High Commissioner to the UK. That would be a bad blow.

  • Monty’smate

    Key got thrown out because he stayed on his feet for 3 seconds longer than he ought to have done?? My Lord, Carter was determined to show his ‘impartiality’, wasn’t he!

    • shykiwibloke

      Oooh what a tough guy speaker – not! Is that really the best we have available for the job? About as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle.

      • biscuit barrel

        Every meeting has the same rules, you cant talk over the chairman.
        Its common sense which Key ignored multiple times

  • Such a shame the mic was switched off as the PM looked on fine form and having a great laugh getting stuck into Shaw and his leftie mates. Would have loved to have heard what was shaping up to be a great sledgefest

    • ChrisM

      Yes I think Carter denied us something special.

    • crigs

      I would like to know too, unfortunately it is not in the Hansard. Maybe only the stuff that is said while the mic is on is recorded in Hansard.

  • Cadwallader

    I recall Muldoon being ordered from the House although it may not have been while he was the PM. Muldoon did not retire gracefully but continued to yell abuse at the other side of the House as he departed. I think there are times when a show of pugnacity is worthwhile especially when you have a pack of ultra-sensitive lefties to harangue. Poetry in motion.

  • oldmanNZ

    I think, it was lucky for Greens/James Shaw that the PM was thrown out.

    JS was getting roasted, either he actually is an idiot, hipocrate, or someone else wrote those questions.

    asking JK to apologise for telling the truth ?
    yet Jame Shaw lied about John Key with Cook Islands?

    I dont know if the greens are cringing with embarassment and thank their lucky stars that JK kicked out so he could not ask anymore questions, or congratulating him to get JK kicked out.

  • Huia

    It could have been staged to distance the PM from the utter stupidity of Shaw. The PM had his back to the Speaker so wouldn’t have seen him get to his feet.
    Time to get throw Puffy Robinson out too as he interjects all the time, nothing constructive, nothing valid, just more Puffy noise.

    • rangitoto

      King is the worst and Carter lets her get away with it.

      • biscuit barrel

        You have an example ? remember Key was warned the previous day and on other previous occasions.

        • Deja Voodoo

          An example is watching question time on any sitting day. King was warned yesterday by Carter as the member that he received the most email complaints about

        • KGB

          The speaker warns King every single sitting day.
          Not that two wrongs make a right.

  • Catriona

    Hilarious. James Shaw appears to have a hearing problem. He’s not listening.

  • zotaccore

    JK will put this one in the trophy cabinet. He shrugged, then grinned, then left. He is a masterpiece and in his element and the marionette James Shaw was left looking stupid, as usual.

  • Keanne Lawrence

    The Prime Minister has played a stellar knock at the crease this week and when not hitting the opposition over the rope he has tried to add a challenge by moving the rope out. He was not fazed by being ejected from the chamber and most are aware he has a lot more important tasks than answering lame questions from Shaw.
    The biggest disappointment is the inconsistences from the speaker obviously noted by those who emailed over his earlier excessive tolerance for King. King by name but the Queen of cackle in the house with her continuous heckling. Kick her out and the level of heckling would reduce by more than 50%.
