Who to believe, who to believe?
Prime Minister John Key has dismissed Winston Peters’ claim that he was approached by someone who asked him if he would work with Judith Collins if she was National Party leader.
However Key did add it would “theoretically” be a sackable offence if Peters’ allegation of treachery were true, before saying: “it won’t be true”.
The NZ First leader today said he would swear an affidavit that someone asked him and that he would “put his life on it”.
That’s very strong language from Peters, and Collins has every reason to lie. Why is she still a Minister anyway? The rumours that she “has something” on Key are probably mischievous – but it would explain his bizarre paralysis as Collins keeps dragging National through the dirt.
