Checkmate comment on Key
This quote was translated and adapted to fit the New Zealand situation into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010 .
“The danger to New Zealand is not John Key but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Prime Ministership. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a Key Government than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their Prime Minister."
"The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Key, who is a mere symptom of what ails New Zealand . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
New Zealand can survive a John Key, who is, after all, merely a fool.
It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
