John Key: ‘ my lawyer actually does those things clearly [he] had the wrong information.’
That’s how Slippery John explained why legal documents showed him living at different addresses at the same time.
For election purposes he had claimed to be living at his $1.1 million home in Waimauku in his electorate, but on documents for his property company, Earl of Auckland Ltd, he claimed to be living at his $6.8 million Parnell mansion.
Well, it is seems eight months later he still can’t get it right. A quick check today of Companies Office records for two of his other companies, Haunui Dairy Company (recently put into liquidation) and Dairy Investment Ltd shows that he is still living at his $2.2 million Remuera townhouse.
At the height of the address controversy in August last year, Slippery John used the sale of this Remuera townhouse as his excuse for registering in his electorate house. He said on Morning Report that in 2002 that he had been in the process of selling the Remuera townhouse and the Parnell mansion had been a construction site. So, he felt more attachment to the measly million dollar Waimauku house than the house he was selling.
We now know for sure that Slippery John was telling lies. He is clearly so attached to the Remuera townhouse that he’s still using it as his registered place of residence six years after he moved out!
We know it’s not your fault, John, nothing ever is. It’s so hard to get good help these days, but John, you need a new lawyer one that knows where you live.
