I Hope He's Not Paid $450k

It seems a prerequisite for employment on the Assignment programme that one must not do any homework before an interview. A couple of weeks ago there was some nondescript idiot interviewing McCully and the interviewer had not bothered to find out what shadow portfolios MucCully carries. This week, the person who is touted widely as TVNZ's saviour engaged in another hackneyed waste of time discussion on the National Party leadership and tried to drag up the media inspired 'bogey' of Dr Brash's age. You'd think even a cub reporter might look up his victim's date of birth. But not the Great Tallow. On he sailed:-

SIMON What is your future within the National Party, are you going to be there in three years time?

DON Ah, well I expect to be yes.

SIMON And if you were to win that election you would be over 70.

DON Oh no I would not.

SIMON (Oh shit, really?) As Prime Minister during the term.

DON Well if the election is held three years from the last one I'd be 67 when the election is held. At the end of that period yes I'd be 70.

You see, Agenda people don't do maths. It's personality what counts, not brains. I wouldn't give this bloke a job writing the calf club round for the Wanganui Chronicle.

I think he got swept away by his panelist's charisma, lol.

And what exactly are you saying about the Wanganui Chronicle? You have some tough questions to answer Adolf.

Yes, the good old Wangchron. Not sure even if it still does a calf club round.
