That clipping’s from the Herald on the 23rd of this month. Yesterday on RNZ John Armstrong appeared to backtrack over whether Labour holding John Key to account for his numerous inconsistencies really is a “personal attack”:

Kevin: People have talked a lot about personal attacks and the policy of personal attacks. I’m just wondering whether in fact, Labour have launched that many personal attacks on John Key. I mean, where he lives in his electorate, it’s not quite the same sort of level of attack where say other, not necessarily National, but people were going for the Prime Minister’s husband and that kind of thing. I mean is it actually a real personal attack yet? Is it more just that National just doesn’t have any policy at the moment obviously until the next election – they can’t have policy so what else are they going to attack?

Armstrong: “No it’s not really at a level of personal attack on that scale”
