    Um "Gord" - may have been a bit hasty - mucosal damage produced by the abnormal reflux of gastric contents into the oesophagus - sounds about right.

    It would be a thing if Key, in abscence of an effective opposition, defeated himself.

    Considering rowing - he has caught a crab - the "revelations" would make him King Crab.

    There is no defence to Collins behaviour - the most troubling outcome is not that Key won't sack Collins - should National be re-elected against the background of all of this - that is the most disturbing outcome.

    There is no morality in Politics – all that really matters now is the outcome of the election – Key’s position has changed from denial to one of, “So What” – he is taking a punt on getting away with “IT”.

    That is where the game is now.

    How scary - a book no less - good to see the might of the written word.

    Slater, to me, has become the face to the true "mind", (an illustration of the core thinking), of John Key and his cabinet.

    I haven't read the book and won't do it until this summer - the revelations and furore surrounding the book won't change my voting which won't be National - I would hope that swinging voters do not endorse this John Key National Government – they are really low and need to be gone. The boil needs to be lanced.

    The links to the summary and the opinions of others help in understanding the mess - so thanks.

    About 200 people attended the recent candidates debate in Epsom, yet on the same night a local primary school had a production and would have got well over 1,000. So the candidates really don’t know the electorate - NOT.

    Not that it matters.

    At what point do you lose your empathy, and stop seeing the people and only see the politics? It's sad.

    I would not consider Slater ever saw the people or wider political issues - he seems to be all about power and hate.
