At the height of the Peters affair when John Key was trying to make political capital out of the PM’s statement that she had known about the Glenn donation to NZ First since February, Paul Henry asked Key about his own honesty. Here’s the exchange:
Henry: Do you promise you will never do that if you become the Prime Minister?
Key: I do promise I’ll never do that.
Henry: You promise you will always be honest?
Henry: And if a journalist forgets to ask you a particular question you will answer it anyway?
Key: Well I’ll do my best.
I guess he’s only as good as his word.
