Joe Trinder at Mana News makes an interesting claim:
Key: I want that left wing bastard gone
Last year Prime Minister John Key and Mark Weldon had a phone conversation in regards to John Campbell. Mr Key was overheard saying “I want that left wing bastard gone”. The prime minister had insidiously conspired with Mark Weldon to end John Campbell’s broadcasting career and have Campbell live taken off the air. …
There are further claims relating to the role of Burger King.
In comments following Joe strongly defends the Key claim, and states that he has a witness who can verify it. The reaction to these claims (e.g. on Twitter) has been mixed / skeptical.
