Who won Key vs Shearer Super Thursday?
John Key's speech on the other hand seemed to sound more like the Chairman of the Soviet Production Ministry than visionary thinking.
Key's 10 points for NZ in todays speech follows Steven Joyces six key areas for business growth released on Monday which was a subset of the four main priorities Key outlined at the beginning of the year but they weren't the same four priorities outlined by the six point economic plan rolled out in 2010 which were different again from the six points of broader focus off the National party campaign billboards and which have little to do with the 120 point economic action plan announced at last years election.
I kept waiting for Key to declare that chocolate rations are to be lifted while our war with Eurasia continued.
Last year saw the lowest voter turn out in 120 years, a million enrolled voters just didn't bother voting. Sadly those million voters would find lean pickings for democratic engagement from the vision declared by either leader today.
In terms of the political point scoring, Shearer wins because Key exhibited all the vision of a blind cyclops.
