Greg is doing the hosting, he's actually pretty good.
You know shit is bad for John Key when he has to front on Q+A.
Key makes the very valid point that Puller is someone who is not happy with the way ACC has treated her and she has every right to complain. Shane really puts the acid on Key over the fact this is an internal National Party civil war, Key holds the line on Puller and clutches at hopes that the electorate care about 'the big issues'.
Key is solid, makes all the calming noises, but his calmness misses how destructive the internal war between Boag and Collins has actually cost him. He looks like a lame duck losing control of his factions while trying touch through with a zero budget.
'It's my expectation that I will be here for 2014' - his words never sounded so hollow.
Mike notes that Key is looking worried, Fran points out that Key has every reason to be rattled because of the internal nature of the leaks and Dr Miller says that Pullar hasn't actually gained any real help whatsoever despite her highly placed friends. They all note the Government seems to have lost control of the agenda.
