"You don't have to be of this world to be effective in it"

His faith may not compell the majority, his stylistic choices are seen as questionable and his politics have been criticised and laughed at since he strutted into parliament in his kooky hemp suit.

But you can't tell me this parting speech from Green MP Nandor Tanczos wasn't cutting, emotive and pretty next level. Even the coldest corporate gets choked up at the uplifting (and somewhat unexpected) finale.

I'm sure John Key has a seering comeback but he's probably too busy getting endorsed by the mainstream press for what the entire month? The man behind the name, the man who would be prime minister etc... the Herald even had a theatrical spread (cough for the second week in a row) with John Key holding a mask of his own face in his hands. I'm like dude this aint art school or Macbeth, this is the news and you WISH he warranted that kind of charasmatic representation.

The media will suggestively shape these emotive claims into fact as the mammoth underserved readership/viewers believe Key is the national mindset and pre-determined victor. Not round my parts - don't let em fool you friends, make an informed and unbiased decision and listen to your unlikely mate Nandor - expect more from your politicians!
