Here’s some great audio of Key running Crosby/Textor lines to avoid answering Havoc’s questions. Around the half way point my personal favourite C/T line even makes an appearance: “I intend to run a positive upbeat ambitious campaign; I think it reflects my personality”. As Havoc observes “[John] you’ve spent the last nine months gaining New Zealand’s trust and now that it would appear we don’t know who’s talking”. Bingo.
UPDATE: Sounds like you and I might have been paying for Key’s use of Crosby/Textor too.
