Taking with both hands

billboard If there's such thing as the opposite of an 'Indian-giver,' then John Key is it.  Taking on one hand, and then giving it right back. 

Case in point, the 3pm TRN news bulletin:  Key announces that National will abolish the $15 million currently given to TVNZ in order to meet its Charter ... but will instead redirect that money straight to Creative NZ [hat tip Sus].

He just doesn't get it, does he.

In the red corner, ladies & gentlemen ... Helen the Harridan.  And in the blue - well, the other corner, anyway .... a smiling chump.

  1. The money's apparently going straight to NZ on Air, not Creative NZ. My mistake; not that it changes the principle.
