Our esteemed Prime Minister seems very keen and eager to show our American cuzzies that we can contribute to the war in the Middle East.

In which case, if we are going to put “boots on the ground” in Iraq or Syria, who will be filling those boots?

Will it be the sons and daughters of National Ministers?

And when the first coffins start returning home, will Mr Key be on the tarmac, seeing them unloaded?

Or will he be “otherwise engaged”, watching his son play baseball in the US?

      Debs, I’d put money on it that it will never see the light of day in the DomPost. To date, it hasn’t been published…

    Key send his own son into a battlezone? Yeah, right. That’ll fucken never happen. That’s only for kids from poor working class families who have no other life options.
