John Key’s claims that Labour has been digging through the rubbish outside his Helensville electorate office have been dismissed by Michael Cullen this morning as paranoia. However, CCTV footage revealed exclusively to The Standard suggests Mr Key might just be onto something.

This is just another clumsy example of the misdirection tactics I outlined yesterday. And, judging by the media coverage, it’s working.]
