Bit silly to upset journalists just before an election. He should have kept it quiet and laid charges after the election if it was that important to him. The media are obviously out to get him. Today's Herald front page story:

I just wish the press here weren't so darned lily livered; they should have just got on with publishing it and worried about the consequences later.

It's hardly 'The News of the World' is it, FFS? If John Key thinks so, he needs to get out a little more often.

Well he has had a mega-easy ride for the last 3 years - maybe it is time the worm turned...you know the way Fleet Street always builds people up (such as celebrities) only to delight in their downfall in some sex scandal a few months/years later?

Can't see what all the fuss is about. They did allow themselves to be filmed. Surely it crossed their tiny minds that there are people out there that can lip read
