Well well – Mr “No middle ground. I’m right. He’s wrong” is changing his story:
Mr Key has said the GCSB was working on a business study for a form of “mass cyber protection” following cyber attacks on several large New Zealand companies. Mr Key had told them it was too broad a net. However, this morning he indicated it had gone ahead on a limited capacity.
“I said I think it’s too broad .. so in the end I said let’s set it at a much more narrow level.”
What was it that Key was saying – could it be only yesterday?
Mr Key said Cabinet signed off a proposal for the GCSB to investigate a business case for widespread cyber protection of New Zealand entities, but he personally stopped the work in March last year because he thought it was a step too far.
“In the end, that never even got to a business case.”
And now he says it did go ahead at a “narrow level”?! Key is a liar. He will say anything, do anything, to cling to power. His credibility is finished. Vote him out.
