More lies from the Emperor.
Nevermind the fibs, look at the new threads he's wearing,

Act II: in which he who should not be referred to as a pampered menial becomes a ‘well kept man’, or is he just a one ‘made man’ band?
ACT leader David Seymour has been sworn in as New Zealand’s first parliamentary under-secretary since 2005, with Prime Minister John Key signalling a ministerial post lies ahead.
He now holds the roles of parliamentary under-secretary to the minister of education and to the minister for regulatory reform.
He will also serve on the finance and expenditure select committee.
The under-secretary position means Seymour will not be subject to questions in the House. It appears he will not be subject to the Official Information Act also.

While having a catch-up with someone yesterday, talk turned to politics and the election, as ya do, I was stunned by their vehement assertion that they hated Nicky Hager, so I had to ask if they had met him, or read his books - No & No - was the reply, 'so why do you hate him?' I ask, short answer, 'he's a stirrer' - this from someone I'd never picked for blinkered reactionary - gobsmacked am I .
Why do people hate on folks who take on the thankless task of revealing unpleasant truths?
60 Minutes, which has been harshly criticized for running puff pieces for the NSA and FBI recently, is at it again. Last night, they ran two unrelated yet completely conflicting segments—one focusing on FBI Director Jim Comey, and the other on New York Times reporter James Risen—and the cognitive dissonance displayed in the back-to-back interviews was remarkable.
