When I heard John Key not absolutely rule out going in to coalition with Winston Peters (3:20) I wasn’t happy.
I’m not the only one. Brunette had her knickers twisted too.
But when the panic subsided I began thinking and I worked out the strategy – don’t give him any oxygen.
If John had ruled out any dealing with Peters, the media would have gone to him for comment and even if they didn’t he’d have used it as a grandstand.
Instead, he’s got one less excuse for a rant.
He’s not saying he will, he’s just ignoring him which is the best thing to do with him.
