Faces of the day

Sarah Dowie & Simon Bridges

Today Simon Bridges is believed to be going to strongly endorse his female MP.

The third rule of Whaleoil politics is to never cuddle a corpse. ( We are not yet sure which one is the corpse and who is doing the cuddling. Maybe they both are.)

Simon Bridges is running the good cop bad cop play. It is the same play used on Todd Barclay to get rid of him and Sarah Dowie should recognise it as she played good cop in the Barclay exit. Bennett, of course, is playing bad cop.

Rules of politics The rules as devised by Cameron:

  1. If you are explaining, you are losing
  2. Utu is good, even necessary
  3. Never hug a corpse: it smells and you end up smelling like the corpse too
  4. Always know where the bodies are buried
  5. Don?t let mongrels get away with being mongrels
  6. Don?t mess with The Whale
  7. Never wrestle with pigs; two things are for certain if you do: you will get dirty and the pig will enjoy it
  8. Never ask a question if you don?t already know the answer
  9. Speak plain and speak simple
  10. Remember, I?m telling this story
  11. Never trust a politician if you aren?t close enough to them to hit them in the back of the head with a bit of 4?2
  12. Never trust a politician with a moustache or a hyphenated name
