Personality not only wins elections Bill, it forgives almost every possible sin by the voter, that’s why National voters have turned a blind eye to suicide, mental health, poverty, inequality and the way beneficiaries, prisoners and the vulnerable are treated by the state.

Bill English must be getting nervous, he’s just come out and said ‘People don’t vote on personality’ in response to Labour under Jacinda

Labour might go up in the polls after Jacinda Ardern’s rise to the leadership but in the long run people “won’t vote just on a personality”, Prime Minister Bill English says.

…the subtext to National’s spin line here is that Jacinda is just a personality, that real policy is made by grey old men like him.

Two things in response to this, the first is that sounds like the exact things the Left said about John Key when he first became leader and the second thing to say in response to Bill’s claim that ‘People don’t vote on personality’ is – John Key.

Key’s laid back anti-intellectual have a beer with me persona fitted in perfectly with NZs negative egalitarianism. Key’s personality was so laid back it was horizontal and middle Nu Zilinds desire to have a beer with him inoculated National from mass surveillance lies, dirty politics and colluding with the SIS to smear a Leader of the Opposition.

Personality not only wins elections Bill, it forgives almost every possible sin by the voter, that’s why National voters have turned a blind eye to suicide, mental health, poverty, inequality and the way beneficiaries, prisoners and the vulnerable are treated by the state.

The reason Bill doesn’t want personality to matter now is because the last time he tried to have a personality, this happened…

…National supporters are now calling Bill their ‘rock’ after Kelvin Davis name checked him in a shopping list of the dullest insults made in the 21st century. It does however say something about how much of a personality deficit Bill English really has when an inanimate object can be added to his name as a dynamic.

    Hey Martyn,

    Tonight around 6.15 pm on John Campbell show I heard Bill English was being interviewed about the 450 texts he sent the Secretary for Todd Barclay English did not deny he sent them in fact in the interview he said he often called at 1 am as he found that was the best time to get them??????

    Bloody hell!!!

    Bullshit Bills at it again!

    Although he lost the National leadership once before because he HAS the personality of a rock as already mentioned. So you’d think Bullshit Bill would get the message. The reality is, it is about personality and Bullshit Bill knows it, why? Well it started with the stupid pizza photo op didn’t it.

    I wonder how Bullshit Bills feeling about the, now in the media, 400 odd emails to Glenys Dickson, given that he didn’t interfere in the Balclutha employment process that saw the demise of Barclay.

    From his double dipping to his Glexting in Balclutha no one can seriously take anything he says seriously.

    So like Key, personality is everything in politics and given Jacinda has it in spades, Bullshit Bills crapping himself.

    John Key’s personality? I must have missed something, a liar, evasive, flaky and superficial. Historical impact on New Zealand, nothing .
    Some have said you could stand a syphilic donkey as a leader of National party and it would be deemed to have charisma.
    National supporters don’t vote for the leader or what maybe best for New Zealand ,they vote to protect their personal assets,first and foremost,end of story.
