Like many listeners, we were stunned to hear this from a man who wants to lead New Zealand.
Key has since claimed both that he is technically right and that his comment has been taken out of context.
But we’re not buying his excuses. We believe that he should unreservedly apologise to the people of Iraq and all those worldwide who are affected on a daily basis by the ongoing war. We think his comment belittles their suffering and sacrifice.
