  • OnPoint: Peek-a-boo, I can't recall…, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    ...how about letting Sky City have more pokies so they can build a convention centre that will cost the government millions to run?

    Or how about selling assets, at huge financial cost to the country?

    Aaaah! But that's not breaking the law, that's just dodgy ethics and misinterpretation of the word mandate - and, as we all know, John Key is comfortable with that...

    Saint John... or Stain John?
    Poor Mr Banks, here he is getting the Spanish Inquisition, when he is just taking his lead from the Pope who quietly reintroduced Plenary Indulgences a few years back - a nice little earner, I'm sure!

    dunning the dunno donor...

    a person who receives a donation... (or) a person who makes one.

    either way it looks like Banks is prime meat for a donee-kebab....

    I wonder if someone has checked if Dotcom gave to Banks' Epsom parliamentary campaign? One would imagine that Banks must've seen him as a cash cow - perhaps that's the other shoe waiting to drop....

    light blue touchpaper and retire...
    Why would John Banks phone Kim Dotcom, someone he says he hardly knows, to thank him for the $500,000 fireworks donation to a city he was no longer mayor of?
    Or was he thanking him for the invite to the exclusive waterside party that he watched said fireworks from that he allegedly hugged the Dotcoms on leaving?

    the peril of the free lunch...

    ...they were both at the same party to watch the fireworks display!

    Interesting he was saying in January that he was finding it necessary to say he didn't know if Dotcom had donated to his mayoral campaign...

    Mr Banks said he did not know if Dotcom donated money to his mayoral campaign in 2010, but possibly it was anonymous..

    Banks really has a Memento like memory...

    No, he claims he did call to thank him… but for something else!

    Be interesting to see when the phone call was then, June would seem to be a little late for thanking someone for contributing to a New Years event...

    Leo my team leader at work

    with good sight-lines to the mouse...

    (is there such a thing as Restrained Abandon?)

    Straitjacket flits, perhaps?
