The Nats have had two responses to English’s “pull the trigger” comments revealed last night: first the taping itself was branded a “dirty trick” and now we have Key claiming on Sunrise this morning that the comments may have been taken out of context.
Well here’s a view of his own, straight from Hansard, with plenty of context. New Zealand, says John Key, is “MIA [missing in action]” in Iraq, and the country will pay for it…Bill’s views, as revealed on the secret tape, are right in line with National Party sentiment on issues of international relations – Clark and Goff have it right.
Once again in private Bill’s been caught out telling the truth – it’s just a shame that neither he nor his leader can do so in public.
[Update: Bill has posted a link to this in the comments. Cheers bro. (warning: some content is quite graphic)]
