How deep is Key in this mess?



Key's office ordered records released

Source: Fairfax Media – Key’s office ordered records released


It now appears that the Prime Minister’s office was involved  in obtaining Andrea Vance’s phone records.

If it can be shown that Key was directly involved – this government will fall.

    Listening to the news tonight did I hear John Key using the “royal” “we” ? We did not do this, we did not say this,repeat ad infinitum “we”. What happened to the “I”, taking personal responsibility? Someone should tell the PM “The buck ends with him, sitting behind his desk”. He is the Minister in charge of security and intelligence garbage in – garbage out. He has a whole range of bureaucrats, advisers, spin docs who are there for him so no excuses. While “we” are at it, sorry, “I” am at it……who is/are “parliamentary services” ? Surely there are humans either singular or plural who come under the umbrella of “parliamentary services”. Could “we” have a “Roll Call” of the bodies, the names, of the people who make up this august service, body or are they a groupie from outer space or the never regions of the underworld? Roll call please, names, own up ! Cowardice does not a confidence make in your credentials. “Fronting up” I think they call it today.

    Key is in full-on denial mode. Methinks he protests too much. When one becomes an MP do they have lessons on how to cover ones track and denial is the dark art of saving ones credibility? Unfortunately, used too often it ceases to have any effect….the citizens eventually catch on.

    As somebody said the other day national are more nanny state than Labour ever were.

    We are definitely in the realm of BIG BROTHER 1984 style.

      The difference is that your nanny was usually trying to protect you from harming yourself….Big Brother however is trying to bully you into submission….

    I think Farrar and that oil slick Slater were running the plausible denial boot camps weren’t they? 😉

    Key is lying his head of.

    And his bullshit about Al Queda terrorists is just that. Bullshit. As for Farrar, if he could get his nose any further up Key’s butthole, his head would fall in. And Slater is plain mad as a meat-axe. I swear they’re going to section him in the near future.
