- Text at top left reads 'PM refuses to comment on Henare's tweet.... News'. The cartoon shows Prime Minister John Key making a speech in the run-up to the 2011 elections. Someone from the audience asks 'P.M. What do you think of Tau Henare's tweet to Hone Harawira?' and the PM turns round to a man behind him who represents 'polls' and whispers 'Psst! What DO I think of it?' Context - John Key is riding high in the polls and takes care not to damage ratings by saying the wrong thing. Refers to an incident in which National Party MP Tau Henare has stirred up more trouble on his Twitter feed by describing ex-MP Hone Harawira as "so racist, he puts chocolate milk in his cup of tea". The Prime Minister was not eager to discuss Henare's latest Twitter outburst when he was asked whether he thought the tweet was a good look today. He says he hasn't seen it and doesn't want to comment on it. (NZHerald 24 May 2011) Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
