Shuffling The Deck

John Key’s plan to transform the economy by reorganising a few government departments into one super-bureaucracy leaves me imagining a street magician offering card tricks to a gathering crowd of onlookers.

“Watch as I dazzle you with my amazing tricks!” he says, shuffling the deck.

Two hours later he’s still shuffling the cards, the crowds have given up and gone home, and night has fallen.
