Taking with both hands
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.
