John Key in a nutshell

Key promises local body change, but won't say what

The Herald's subeditors have inadvertantly perfectly captured Key's strategic emptiness, that effort to be all things to all people by speaking only in generalities and never adopting a firm position or serious policy. But you can't govern like that, and eventually National is going to have to tell us what it really stands for and what it plans to do.

Hopefully, we'll be able to force them to do it before the next election.
