Mr Key has so many 'explanations!'
Sometimes one can almost feel sorry for politicians as reporters and their political foes attempt to trip them up re various issues---well almost-----but when the PM consistently comes up with a myriad of explanations and excuses over an important issue, in this case the integrity of the position he holds as Prime Minister, then how can we feel anything less than extreme doubt as to his overall honesty? John Key has flipped and flopped his way through the revelations that Nicky Hager has brought up in his book. That there is a great deal of truth in the allegations is well illustrated by the body language alone and more specifically by the attempts to cover up. Now we have a total plethora of deceptions, near lies and outright lies. Maybe the PM should take a leaf put of the Leader of the Opposition in Australia and come clean and let the law and the public decide as to the ‘honesty’ of his arguments. Hell if one believes the polls at present, then he has not taken the huge hit his opponents would like so what’s he got to fear other than fear itself? We have a month to sort this issue out so that we can vote on the other issues affecting New Zealanders; the ones that affect even more NZers than the mere ‘integrity of ‘he’ who would lead us for three more years. Both strands are important. Let’s get this done and dusted and concentrate on jobs, housing, education, health, the environment and the vision of a New Zealand that is far kinder than the one brought to us courtesy of John key and his cohorts! www.authorneilcoleman.com
