Donna and Annabel are obviously National supporters,it does'nt matter if th conversation was recorded or not,what is damaging is the content. If this is what John Key thinks of the Elderly,then hopefully he won't live to a ripe old age,he does'nt deserve to after this,how dare he berate the people that help set up what we have today. Once again,the National Party has shown it's true colours,the average Kiwi is insignificant and unworthy of their attention.My father hosted the likes of Muldoon,Kirk, and Rowling,knowing what Muldoon had in store for NZ,he told me"never vote for National",their lies and deceit,their underhanded tactics,i feel sorry for the future of our beautiful country ,Thinking big,does'nt always work.

Mr Key has nothing to hide but has gone to the police to stop the publication of the recording-gutless!

John Key is a fool if he thought having a conversation in a cafe in full view of the public and press through a glass window was 'private'. Besides which, he is our elected Prime Minister, and I do believe this government has used the term in relation to law and order legislation "if you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear". Use that same logic here, and according to Key, who one minute can't remember what he said, and the next, says it was bland, if he has nothing to fear, release the tape and stop the speculation. The only reason not to release it is because it would damage his shiny reputation as being friendly. There is a reason he was known on the markets as the 'smiling assassin', and I suspect this tape would prove beyond doubt that behind the smile lurks a pretty vicious man. I wish a media organisation had the guts to release the tape to the NZ Public... I hope TV3 decides to do it, and if they do, I would support that no end.
