"...they want people who are wealthy to become poor and people who are poor to stay poor."

A friend spotted this, from John Key in today's Herald:
"Frankly you have to ask the question what these people [Labour] believe in," Mr Key said.
"What we know is they don't like people who are poor that become wealthy, and they don't like people who are wealthy and stay wealthy - so the only conclusion can be that they want people who are wealthy to become poor and people who are poor to stay poor."
As my friend says, it's probably the cleverest and most profound thing he's said so far. And it's true.

Yes, for once John Key has said something true and impressive!

Delighted at the details of the opinion poll out today showing Labour is finished.

Yes. The public are not swayed by reckless Woman's Weekly style reportage of various faux pas.

Make me laugh how the Key detractors are getting so desperate they are saying he has bad hair! Which he does, but then so does PC, so I doubt he'll take that tack. Heh.

Funny how so many people recognised this as a key quote in the article.
