Letter to the Editor – Key makes up any old sh*t, again
From a Fairfax story on 13 September, about visiting investigative journalist, Glenn Greenwald,
It was time to take Key to task on his lying BS…

Key recently alleged;
“Lets understand what’s going on here; Kim Dotcom is paying Glenn Greenwald to come to New Zealand a week before an election and he’s trying to influence New Zealanders. The problem is, he’s got the story wrong.”
Only problem (for Key) is that Greenwald has rejected the PM’s claims, and stated categorically that he has not been paid by Kim Dotcom, nor anyone else. If he has, Key has not provided any evidence to support his allegations.
Once again, our esteemed prime Minister has been loose with the facts and appears to be making stuff up as he goes along, hoping no one will notice.
It is hard to understand why Key expects people to believe him when he throws unsubstantiated allegations all over the place.
On 13 August, when Nicky Hager released his expose on Dirty Politics surrounding the Beehive Ninth Floor, Cameron Slater, Judith Collins, and other sundry dubious characters, Key casually dismissed it;
“Mr Hager’s making claims he can’t back up and they’re not factually correct.”
Seventeen day later, Judith Collins was forced to resign her ministerial portfolios.
If anyone is “making claims they can’t back up and are not factually correct”, it appears to be the Prime Minister.
