Conflict of interest

By Steven | November 16, 2011

John Key has “stormed” out of a press conference, refusing to answer questions about the teapot tapes. Actually it was more of a scuttle (scroll down for video). But before that he was pushing the familiar line that New Zealanders are more interested in the economy and the serious policies that matter. Now, I’m all with the PM that voters are generally more interested in the issues than either the politicians’ talking points or the media’s horse-race analysis (and on that point: how about fronting up to Morning Report more regularly, Mr Key?) 

But with the teapot tapes… my bet is most New Zealanders right now are more interested in what they reveal.
