Just had a listen to Key’s post-cab press conference. I’m no big city journo but seeing the weak, misdirected reforms on drinking I would have asked:
- Did the PM declare his conflict of interest when the alcohol reforms were debated at Cabinet?
- Aren’t these exactly the reforms you would expect from a guy who owns a high end winery? No extra excise. No controls on advertising. Demonise the kids.
- Has National or any of its MPs recieved donations from alcohol sellers? Like Tony Astle, for example?
‘Course if you asked that, you might lose access and Kevin Taylor’s next story would go to someone else.
Guess that’s why I’m not a big city journo.
