Key going to police over ‘teapot tapes’
John Key will complain to police over the ‘teapot tapes’, even though he says they contain nothing that would be a game-changer. The Prime Minister is making the complaint to police because he fears it could lead to more News of the World tactics. Police will visit his office at 4pm this afternoon.
“I am not bothered in the slightest about the tape,” he told media at a news conference this afternoon. ….
He’s “not bothered in the slightest about the tape”, but he’s laying a complaint with the police. OK then. Is the tape a “game changer”? Some people think so:
Paper says teapot tapes a ‘game-changer’
The newspaper at the centre of the teapot tape affair could make a strong public interest argument for its release if the contents really are “explosive”, a leading media law commentator says.
Herald on Sunday editor Bryce Johns says a recorded conversation between Prime Minister John Key and ACT’s Epsom candidate John Banks is “potentially game-changing”.
EMBARRASSING FOR THE PM
The recording was embarrassing for the Prime Minister and was likely to change the way some people vote, the Herald of Sunday editor claimed this morning.
Is it just me, or is John Key starting to look like he has something to hide?
