I said at the time of the Julie Bishop comments, we're probably about due a NZ PM who'll stand up to us. Looks like we've got one.

I hated swats. If some of them swatted hard enough they'd LOOK like they were nearly as good as me! They weren't, I never swatted.

We need to get to 100% renewables, last week, & we need to undo the 100% price rise we've had. One way to do both: nationalise 'em!
