Whenever I commented on the National party’s inertia in fighting global socialism, Nat party fan boys squealed back that there was nothing to be done because if Key or anyone in National spoke out against socialist convention the voters would dump them. So waving the white flag was the only option available.
Whenever I pointed to the success of Nigel Farage’s challenge to the status quo in the UK, Nat Party Progressives told me it just couldn’t happen in NZ.
I said it could happen in NZ and the problem was we have a mealy mouthed stand for nothing believe in nothing compromiser as PM, and that was the problem.
The response to this was always, “no Key’s doing the best that can be done”.
Well, Donald Trump is Nigel Farage on steroids, and his unprecedented popularity with US voters shows it can be done. All it takes is a man with guts and the commitment to change. When the voters see such a man they are drawn to him and will support him.
John Key could have been NZ’s Donald Trump, but surrounding himself with sycophants and yes men/women, and caving in completely to the left, he’ll go down in history as a UN panderer and Helen Clark’s socialist lackey.
