How to sell NZ to the UK market...Key style

John Key in Gay mode speaks about intelligence.

John Key has brain meltdown

Who is the smartest, some one who has made 50 million via Wall Street money shoveling or some one who has made 250 million playing the world’s biggest and most popular sport?

In both cases we are not talking intelligence here, we are talking smartest and there is a difference. One can be smart but not intelligent, or intelligent but not smart.

There are well known crooks that were smart, because they manage not to get caught, at least for long periods, for example South Canterbury finance bosses and many others involved in the finance industry particularly in first world nations. This discredited and corrosive industry was both slick and smart but as to their intelligence, that’s a different question.

There are others who live in the world of professional sport, some are brilliant at what they do, and are paid millions and millions by their codes and sponsors and while it is difficult to decide if they are simply smart or intelligent it is easy to see if they are talented or not…one only has to watch them.

Well the other day John Key our very own PM put his foot in his mouth and spoke through his toes, and his highly unintelligent words echoed across the seas and ended up in the UK media… 

NEW Zealand's Prime Minister has branded David Beckham "as thick as bats***", reports said yesterday.
John Key made the stinging remarks - reported on Radio New Zealand - to a group of schoolchildren in the city of Dunedin yesterday.
He told the youngsters that his own son had spent 45 minutes with the former England skipper when he played an exhibition match for an invitational side in Auckland in 2008.
The PM said Becks, 37, had been very friendly, but then cruelly claimed that the LA Galaxy star wasn't particularly bright.

You may not have heard of David Beckham but he is the highest paid UK bred soccer player ever and a past captain of the English team.

Now I don’t know how thick bats*** is but surely it can’t be as thick as John Key after his ill considered childish statement. I think wee John might be just a wee bit envious of David Beckham’s 200 million plus compared with his 50 million plus. Further more I can’t see what his strange and unintelligent outburst would in any way assist a bunch school children in Dunedin, can you?

But John’s inability to conduct himself as an adult, verbally that is, calling David Beckham thick, is not unusual, he is constantly denying knowledge of what he clearly knows, by using words like ‘I can’t remember’, not knowing about Dotcom, child poverty, back-flips on less teaches in class rooms, and charter schools. If these indiscretions by our part time PM are indications of intelligence…then David Beckham is a whiz kid.
