The Herald’s chief political reporter and National Party clone, Audrey Young is at it again…she makes headlines out of John Key predicting the RWC final score…big deal. [Audrey’s comments in italics]
Prime Minister John Key is predicting a win to the All Blacks of 27 to 12 against Australia in the Rugby World Cup final - although it should be remembered that his prediction a week ago was that the All Blacks would be playing Argentina in the final.
Mr Key is a familiar post-match face in the All Blacks' dressing room.
Key of course has to justify the massive tax-payer cost for funding him, his wife plus possibly son Max along with the Minister of Sport etc. to London for a week of rugby watching…now some may consider that spending tens if not hundreds of thousands of our hard earned tax money for the sake of a few photo opportunities in the AB’s changing room is OK, but I can think of better ways of spending that money, where it would actually help real people. Maybe just maybe what attracts the PM to the All-Blacks dressing room is the length of some All-Black’s hair… Ma’a Nonu for example has a wonderful head full of flowing locks, even better than that young waitress in Auckland who was teased heaps of times by a fixated and over excited sexually driven PM…
To make it look as if he is working and not just holidaying DonKey is once again calling on the Queen to pat her wee dogs, I think he might be targeting a Knighthood hood. Now this is strange, remember this the guy who is spending 26 million dollars to change our flag…which would give most the impression that he wants to break the historic links with English royalty…he also reintroduced ‘Knighthoods’ and then tossed out Knighthoods to his good mate Roger Douglas and a few other strange people…sweet Audrey wrote:
Mr Key said that in his meeting with Teresa May [UK Home Secretary] he will be asking that New Zealand's strong historical links with Britain be taken into account in any future restrictions on foreigners to work there. [Beat that for hypocritical behaviour]
And on his last encounter with the Queen, Mr Key and his family were guests for the weekend at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
It will be Mr Key's fifth audience with the Queen in Britain.
It would appear that pee-wee in the shower John K just loves visiting the Queen, here is a list of his known past visits to his Queen
• 25 November 2008 at Buckingham Palace
• 26 April 2011 at Windsor Castle
• 7 June 2012 at Buckingham Palace
• 22 September 2013 at Balmoral Castle
• 30 October 2015 at Windsor Castle

TV 3 [as can be expected] was quick to give the PM a media boost when they informed us how yesterday he talked rugby with the Queen…gee she must have been over-joyed…
His PR team deserves praise for their ability to slip Key into situations that keep his face in the news and it seems as if a Knighthood is Richie McCaw’s, all he has to do is but ask, because it appears as if, the Queen has agreed to give Key’s buddy Richie a Knighthood on the word of the publicity seeking PM anytime he asks… I can picture Key inviting the Queen to his mansions in Hawaii or Auckland…and while she is there she will no doubt agree to a change of the flag. Speaking of the flag…
New Zealand's proposition to dump its flag is likely to be discussed when Prime Minister John Key and the Queen meet at Windsor Castle.
Mr Key was due to meet the monarch on Friday afternoon (local time), and told reporters he expected the possible flag change to come up.
However, he clearly did not believe it was a controversial topic, saying the Queen's position was that it was an issue for New Zealanders.
"That's the view the royal family's always taken when countries have raised a variety of constitutional matters, including some that have gone republic," Mr Key said.
"She's supportive of New Zealanders having a process if that's what they want to go through. I don't think you could say she would offer a view of whether they should do it or not."
Mr Key noted that he had previously raised the issue with the Queen, so he was likely to explain the referendum process the county was now taking Mr Key said.
The Prime Minister will head to Twickenham on Saturday for the Rugby World Cup final before flying out of London that night.
The big day has arrived, in London the PM’s hairdresser is putting the finishing touches to his few remaining strands, his manicurist has finished painting his finger nails with the silver-fern and the limo idles outside of the 1st class hotel. He and his GCSB and SIS support team board the limo and head off to Twickenham.
By now we all know the result… a great win by the AB’s…
Did having Key as a extra ‘Water-boy’ make any difference; I’ll leave you to decide.
Thank God it’s all over; maybe the media can now fixate on other things for a little while…
