  1. Muttonbird 1

    I think the real transcript would read with less humour and more invective.

    These men are poison to a fair society.

    • aerobubble 1.1

      Key shat on democracy, his people were over joyed when a hapless cameraman was denyed access to retrieve his recording device. Key could innuendo all he liked about being the victim of media bias, and to prove it, he wastes police time and resource raiding news rooms, for what criminal wrong doing? Really, a tape that could concievable twart his ability to become pm, does the police now protect politiciand campaigns.

      Why no independant Police investigations of how Police allowed them to be talked into raiding media, how they failed to investigate how a recording device quite legally placed in the tea room, was managed into a allegded crime warrented the invasion of media newsrooms. Its our Democracy that Key turned to pooh.

    Does anyone actually have a link to the real audio? I recall it being on youtube a couple of years ago, but having a look around now all I can find are fakes.

    • Muttonbird 2.1

      I think you’ll find the video is pretty close to what they actually discussed.

    • grumpy 2.2

      easily found on youtube, first result for ‘john key teapot tapes audio’ in a search.

    • grumpystilskin 2.3

      Easy, first result for a google search using the keywords “john key teapot tapes youtube”.
      Sounds genuine to me, can’t understand all the fuss as it’s very dull.

      • grumpystilskin 2.4.1

        Crikey, they both come across as illiterate fools.
        Obviously sticking to the subject at hand so as to appear to be talking politics but skirting the subject and very camera aware. It’s even more painful reading the transcript, our PM can’t even like fake a media opportunity, how embarrassing for all involved.
        If anything, they both sound weak and vulnerable. Would you vote for either of these men if this was released at election time? That’s probably the real reason why JK put up such a fuss. Not the content but the emotion. Weak and clearly not a leader.

        • aerobubble

          Are you suggesting that their talk was unusually stupid like they knew they were being listen to, could the tape now be evidence against Key. That a reasonable jury of 12 good and true when ask dud Key alledgely mislead Police and so instigate raids on press looking for a tape that he, Key, knew wasn’t private.

  3. alwyn 3

    That isn’t Banks and Key.
    That is Andrew Little talking to Grant Robertson. Andrew is getting his orders by the sound of it.

    • miravox 3.1

      Hey alwyn, I rated you as rw without the nj, but after your last couple of comments I’m not so sure anymore.

      If you listened to the recording I think you’ll find this little skit is not too far wrong.

    • gez the rev 3.2

      L ying
      W anker
      Y ou
      N utsucker

      pulling ya pud all over the place, just like our esteemed leader

    • Tricledrown 3.3

      Toiletroll duty Alwynger desperation creeping in.

  4. Tricledrown 4

    Keys political career mirrors Berlusconi’s .
    Even the decline.

  5. Chuck 5

    I do get it, making the most out of the tea pot tapes by our friends on the left. If there was a secret recording between Andrew Little and his Union friends discussing the coming election strategy, no doubt whale oil and kiwi blog would be all over it for the next 5 years as well!

    • dv 5.1

      Two small points.
      Key and Banks deliberately set up the meeting in a PUBLIC place.
      How come the security missed a very obvious black bag on the table.

      • aerobubble 5.1.1

        That bag was politicial incendiary accord to Key needing police to search press rooms for copies.

  6. Anne 6

    Banks: He’s a horrible fellow, that candidate. Nasty, nasty.
    Key: He is, ooh, nasty. They’re a nasty party in a lot of ways.
    Banks: Yeah, well, you know they’ve been putting stuff in letterboxes about me. Shocking stuff.
    Key: Yes, that’s nasty. That’s what they do, they play the person the whole time. We never do that stuff.

    Talk about projecting their own behaviour on to the Labour Party!

    1) I presume “He” is Michael Wood – thoroughly decent guy… honest and upstanding and totally literate.

    2) The stuff in the letter boxes was someone who did it independently of any political party. Nothing to do with the Labour Party.

    3) Listen to who is talking? John Key has spent 7 years playing the person and not the issues.

    And then of course he chose to believe the recording device was deliberately left there because it was politically advantageous in the middle of an election campaign.

    • Lanthanide 6.1

      Yes, the most revealing thing about this is that it’s an insight into the sort of stuff John really thinks. Now maybe he wasn’t being completely candid with Banks, but he’s certainly being more honest than he would ever be with the media.

  7. Magisterium 7

    NZ’s left, still fixated on stuff that happened before the election before the last election.

    • aerobubble 7.1

      Goes to character hey, Labours oppositiinal purpose is despicable, hey Key’s slander, use of the oppressive state to search media not a character issue for freedom loving right. oh wait you mean if they are immediately exposed we should not learn from history. moron

      • Magisterium 7.1.1

        The only thing that Joe Sixpack remembers about the incident is that the Herald tried to make John Key look bad and he stood up to the big bad newspaper and won, yaaaaay.

  8. Kevin 8

    “Key: Hey, that’s a recording device.”

    As the last comment it’s comedy gold.

  9. International Rescue 9

    It is genuinely fascinating to watch the left get so exercised over this. The irrational hatred of JK from the left is an integral part of his popularity amongst the rest of us, and yet no-one left of centre gets this. Finally, the only liar here is W Peters. He claimed the two disparaged old people, when they did nothing of the sort. It’s great the audio is now out.

    • International Rescue 10.1

      I agree with you Bob…I assume your final two paragraphs are sarcasm?

  10. TC 11

    what a lovely sample of diversion t$&lling, waiting for a few old favourites….
