  1. Paul Campbell 1

    so Key told a another lie, at this point it’s hardly even news anymore

    • AmaKiwi 1.1

      Paul, I may be wrong but I think the main stream media is becoming less inclined to turn a blind eye to his obvious lies. We don’t have major news outlets with headlines, “Key lies again.”

  2. Magisterium 2

    No conflict there. What’s the problem?

    • Bill 2.1

      Aw fuck right off!

      Text below one headline has Key claiming he spoke to Whitney and that Whitney agreed with his take that the email was sloppily written.

      Two days later another headline states that Key hasn’t spoken to Whitney.

      • Whateva Next 2.1.1

        Bill,You don’t have to explain to Hysterium, he wouldn’t understand, not sophisticated enough. (Although the corruption staring most people in the face, and the stench is getting right up my nose)

        • Smilin 2.1.1.1

          Yes a bit of real gumboot comment and your are 10,000% correct It Stinks

    • Lanthanide 2.2

      Perhaps your eyesight is poor, or you didn’t know what to look for.

      On May 3rd, Key says his lawyer agrees with him that the email was sloppily written and did not reflect what actually happened.

      On May 5th, Key says he hasn’t spoken to his lawyer.

      Both statements cannot be true together. At least one, most likely both, must be a lie.

      • seeker 2.2.1

        Good argument Lanthanide. This clip shows key doing a similar thing, again concerning a personal, longstanding ‘friend’.
        I often display it, because a) he does it in front of a group of journalists who notice his lie but never follow it up and b) because thanks to technology I can (nail him in action that is).

        • WILD KATIPO 2.2.1.1

          Well….wouldn’t it rock you…

          In viewing that clip it revealed several tendencies which if translated into body language signals clearly demonstrate the lie.

          1) the constant eye darting
          2) the rehearsed answers.
          3) the anticipation of the next logical question
          4) just prior to finishing the sentence, eye darting starts in an attempt to terminate and dismiss further questioning from the inquirer
          5) strained and high pitched voice ( evident in inhalation ) demonstrating tenseness within the diaphragm /physiological response to stress
          6) eye darting to assay if what has been spoken has been taken as fact
          7) eye darting in an attempt to find a believing person in the group with which to focus on

          While the body was not involved, the inevitable signs of deceit were present in the eye movement, voice and tenseness surrounding the mouth/general facial muscles.

          • Dan1 2.2.1.1.1

            My wife and I play “Watch the eyes!” We know when he is lying. It’s better than Monopoly or Texas Holdem in that it is over very quickly and is so predictable

          • Dorothy Bulling 2.2.1.1.2

            He makes me think of a kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar – what Mum? No not me, I don’t steal the cookies. Then the sleazy smirking smile, as though the smile will allay Mother’s doubts. What a pity some smart clever reporter(if there’s any left out there), doesn’t really take him to task on the body language.

      • Ross 2.2.2

        On Planet Key the statements may well be consistent and true.

        1. Key’s lawyer emails Key and says he agrees with Key.
        2. Key has not picked up the phone or spoken to his lawyer.

      • AB 2.2.3

        Key is telepathic and simply ‘knows’ that his lawyer agrees with him without the need to discuss it. Don’t laugh – he does have superior powers which is why he will be NZ’s most popular prime minister for all eternity. Nothing to see here.

        • McFlock 2.2.3.1

          to be fair, Key probably pays however-many-hundred-dollars-an-hour in order to have a legal professional agree with him without fail. Especially someone who’s not too worried about a transaction that “may not be morally as white as it could be but it’s normal practice.”

          Not one of those pesky water scientists who insists on reporting the data, but one of the dozen or so he reckoned he could find who would say the rivers are clean.

      • Gabby 2.2.4

        Nonono, you misunderstand – he agreed with his ‘lawyer’ via the international medium of dance, or mime, so no speaking was involved.

    • Hanswurst 2.3

      Did you read beyond the headline? You know, the stuff in smaller print that contains more than a couple of easily digested keywords.

  3. Magisterium 3

    That’s not correct.

    The Tuesday article says that Key spoke to Whitney to confirm that Key’s recollection of their conversation (“not my area, contact the Ministry”) was correct.

    The Thursday article says that Key had not spoken to Whitney since it became known that Whitney had emailed the Ministry to lobby about tax policy.

    These two articles do not contradict each other.

    [BLiP: It is impossible for someone able to type, spell correctly, apply relatively competent grammar, and use the internet to be as stupid as you are trying to appear. For this reason, its obvious you are trolling. Banned for one week.]

    • TC 3.1

      Yes dear

    • The New Student 3.2

      Perhaps Magisterium has a fair point, as it seems Satherley’s story has changed somewhat. All I can find by Satherley on NewsHub is “Key doesn’t hold a grudge against lawyer” Thursday 5 May 2016, 8.49 am. The line that’s in the above picture is nowhere to be found in this version of the article. I’m not terribly bright so you should check for yourself if I have it straight.

      The quote is: “I haven’t caught up with him because look, I’ve been busy,” I can’t watch/listen to any media as I’m on crummy school computer at the moment.

      From this article, the last time they “caught up” is not entirely clear. So going back to the articles on the sloppy email issue, the last time seems to have been whenever that discussion (supposedly) took place. Maybe that’s why the article has since been amended.

      • BLiP 3.2.1

        . . . The line that’s in the above picture is nowhere to be found in this version of the article . . .

        There is a reference to John Key having said he had not “caught up” with Whitney in the body of the article, and the original headline appears in the URL to the altered article.

  4. NZJester 4

    The email on this said;

    Oooops!
    More from the lying liar that lies.

    You need to include his name as that description fits most of the National Party MPS as well as Act MPs and Whaleoil etc.!

  5. James 5

    Blip – you do know that the headline you are mentioning is completely gone right?

    Its been completely updated. So perhaps there was a issue with the original article as opposed to Key telling a lie?

    • BLiP 5.1

      Yep, Newshub is helping John Key cover the lie up. If you click on the link you will see that the URL still contains the original headline.

      http://www.newshub.co.nz/politics/key-hasnt-spoken-to-his-lawyer-about-email-yet-2016050508

      With the MSM now actively colluding with John Key in deceiving New Zealanders, it always helps to get a screen cap. 🙂

      • TC 5.1.1

        Yup, weldons departing as his job is done with jennings and campbell gone leaving the shills free reign.

    • Whateva Next 5.2

      Or trying to fabricate excuses for corruption is getting too trickey to hide now.
      If John Key can’t handle the responsibility of being the PM, and the power that goes with it, cry me a river.
      We all have to be careful of who we say what to, and be aware of conflicts of interest, SURELY The PM realises that with great power goes great responsibility??????

    • Bill 5.3

      Nice try James.

      Isaac Davison piece is here (also altered headline btw) … http://m.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11632719

      On the Newshub altered headline….text reads.

      “I haven’t caught up with him because look, I’ve been busy,” he told More FM’s Si and Gary show on Thursday.

      Maybe it was changed cause, y’know…phone call pointing out the difficulty said headline was causing or likely to cause. 😉

  6. shorts 6

    I figure we’ve hit peak lies… time to reverse the story angle and only report on Key when he tells the truth – though I guess the point of a blog is content so maybe my idea lacks publishing merit

    • Whateva Next 6.1

      and have we reached Peak Key? He is starting to look pretty peeky these days

    • Hanswurst 6.2

      Indeed. I bet he’s never even actually peed in the shower. Probably doesn’t even shower, just oils himself lovingly every morning.

  7. mary_a 7

    Ah the dark art form of lying. FJK demonstrates he is the Grand Master yet again, through these two conflicting articles.

    You’d think he might be able to get his BS straight by now!

    • TC 7.1

      He’s never had to worry about getting his BS straight as the owned msm never ever call him to account on his many lies.

      A half decent msm would’ve savaged him over his tranzrail share BS then finished him off over the course of his first term lies.

  8. Chuck 8

    TC, now if for one moment I agree 100% with you… that what you say is correct – MSM have covered up for Key etc etc…then its a very sad indictment on the opposition, that over the course of 3 elections they haven’t been able to convince the public that what you say is true.

    • Gangnam Style 8.1

      “It’s all Labours fault!”

    • McFlock 8.2

      lol
      But maybe it’s just because Stephen Joyce is such an awesome campaign manager, and your lot are just so absolutely brilliant at being liars and bullshitters. After 8 years you all can start claiming credit for the situation NZ is in today, rather blaming the opposition.

  9. dave 9

    key can only exist on a bed of lies and fraud the truth could land him up the Nixon with no paddle.

  10. Once was Tim 10

    Ekshully, there’s proof that turds can be polished, even coated with gold, put on a pedestal and even candles put in them to burn off the smell …..
    Witness that ugly piece of shit that passes as artwork at the very bottom of Cuba Street, Wellington – right outside where the gorgeous muddle classes congregate at low paid cafes – in ever decreasing numbers.

    Let’s hope this monument survives as a testament to the ugly era. No reason it shouldn’t ….. there’s a fuckit fountain not too far up the road that’s been around a few decades

  11. Instauration 11

    Thanks Blip for enabling a definitive and succinct response from me to the UMR question this week; – ” Describe John Key in one word” (apropos)
    Was easy – starts with “L” and ends with “r”

  12. greywarshark 12

    Breaking news! Crosby Textors expensive apparently elaborate stratagem for Key is just a rip-off from the cartoon series The Simpsons. The series made a mischievous little boy a popular celebrity. And the more he acted up the better people liked him. This clip from youtube which i obtained with great difficulty, explains Key’s antics such as radio interviews in a cage. Bart the brat will dare anything to get noticed, and so will Key. /sarc
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_iiXWzqHRw

  13. Brian 13

    Shameful – not Key – that is to be expected – but the “fourth estate”. How cowardly.

    • Richard Christie 13.1

      Heh, it’s TV3, so it is to be expected. No fourth estate remaining there, they’ve all been fired or have walked.
