The Week in Politics.

Roger Rogerson: Next up we have The Week in Politics with Andoni Zubizarreta Urreta, former goalkeeper for Athletic Bilboa, Barcelona and Spain.
AZ: Good evening, tonight we want to talk about the New Zealand cabinet reshuffle with political analyst Another Kiwi.
AK: Wotcher Zubi.
AZ: Woocher is what?
AK: It's an informal greeting amongst the working class English.
AZ: Hah, and I am Spanish or more precisely Basque . No mind.
AK: Wah!!!
AZ: What have you done to the chair?
AK: I sat in it Zubi, that's all. What is it with you people and your chairs? Also mints in the bowl, here? Some people are allergic to mints, not a lot of people know that.
AZ: Some people come here to talk about specialised subjects and barely notice the mints or the furniture. What about the cabinet reshuffle?
AK: If it was this place the cabinet would have fallen over!
AZ:  Of course, now Mr Key has said that it is for the regeneration and bringing on future leaders.
AK: He's got a plan, Zubi, a golden path leading off to a bright new horizon what will be good for Kiwis.
AZ: Yes.
AK: Eh?
AZ: You said "What will be good for Kiwis", and I thought you were asking a question with, maybe, moving on to an examination of the prospects for the country.
AK:No I meant it as "that thing what he did"
AZ: So, no analysis of the future.
AK: It's a tricky bugger, the future, Zubi what with it not being here yet.
AZ: As you say, but what is the political message that Key is sending, here.
AK: If I was him I would start with doing something about the mints.
AZ: I think that we can move on from your obsession to the politics?
AK: Oh yes, Key has skilfully moved new people up in the peck and order to give them some time in decision making roles for when he moves on to his Warner Brothers job, in the props department. Thus by mixing new people into the mix, he will forge a new team for forging a bright future.
AZ: Ok back to mints.
AK: What? I'm just getting started.
AZ: Yes I know. Is that chair OK?
AK: Well it is a bit wobbly
AZ: A chair technician is with you now
AK: Wahhh!
AZ: Now back to some Kraftwerk music. You know, it sort of calms me.

Mikey refuses to comment on alleged misuse of the Riddled time machine, referring all questions to one Sailor Jerry, whom we assume to be either his lawyer or his theatrical agent.

When he tries to distract you with mints keep a sharp eye on the hobnobs.

I have been reliably informed that he is the Moustache Maintenance Professional.
