New Zealanders have ‘socialist streak’
You are all a bunch of socialists. That is according to John Key and released in a diplomatic cable on Wikileaks. Our approachable PM was talking to Charge d’Affaire Glyn Davies in 2007 when he made the comment. This socialist view of the kiwi people is the reason National can’t implement conservative policies. Have to keep the people happy or at least make them believe you are on their side. Key cleared up his comment today saying it was about the caring nature of kiwis. The Yankees were positive about our PM in their cables calling him a natural politician. Also Winston Peters got some praise as he proved his worth in his role as Foreign Affairs Minister in 2008. But our allies on the other side of the Atlantic did see him as the man he is. A ‘quick-to-anger and bombastic performer; and an enthusiastic baiter of the media’.
