The Monday Quote - 2/3/2009

OK, it's a new month, and regular commenter pdm has gently chided us for the absence of the Monday Quote. We've done the sackcloth and ashes thing, and promised to be more diligent in future! So here it is - this gem from Bill Ralston ( a MQ fave because he's always quotable!) in his Herald on Sunday column yesterday, talking about PM John Key (and his predecessor):

His CEO leadership style is reassuring. His moments of glorious goofiness, dancing with transvestites and doing the occasional face plant when exiting a stage, have made him seem endearingly human in contrast with Helen Clark's austere aloofness of the previous decade.

Helen exercised highly centralised power. She had a cabinet of one.

Nice to see it back INV2.

I just thought it a shame to lose something unique to Keeping Stock.

Cheers pdm - nice to know it's appreciated

and in the first 100 days Helen changed NZ far more than Key has done in his first 100.

Helen made real, economically significant changes.

Key has just fiddled around the edges.

Was H2 part of this caucus of one?
