The Media's Latest Attempt To Beat Key Up Backfires

It is quite clear from a read of all of John Key's comments that he is not ignorant of the Land Wars or the injustices that were inflicted on many Iwi as Pakeha settlement expanded. So we think it great that Key has lodged a complaint about how Newstalk ZB used the interview (Prime News should be similarly in the gun). We are also pleased that Dr Cullen has been silenced on the issue.

Labour's attempt to paint National leader John Key as unworthy of being Prime Minister because of his comments about colonial history have backfired after National revealed Michael Cullen made a similar comment three years ago.
