Young Labour today requests an apology from John Key after Duncan Garner revealed that his source was not a member of Labour, or any other political party.

Young Labour President, Eric Goddard said, “Mr Key has consistently accused Young Labour of being behind the secret recordings of Bill English and Lockwood Smith being caught out telling the truth at their recent conference.”

“I expect an apology for his dishonest accusations, which border on a tantrum-like after having our organisation drawn into this scandal in an attempt to deflect Mr Key’s own short comings as a leader. Kiwis deserve better.” (more…)

Young Labour President Eric Goddard denies John Key’s accusation that Young Labour was involved in secret recordings of Bill English and Lockwood Smith at the National Party conference in the weekend.

“Young Labour was not involved in the recordings that caught Bill English and Lockwood Smith telling the truth,” says Mr Goddard.

“This is a blatant attempt to divert attention from the real issue arising from the recordings. Key should spend less time making up allegations against Young Labour and more time concerning himself with the post-election plans of his caucus. Bill and John don’t need to be afraid of a bunch of university students, they should be more afraid of their caucus’ loose lips.” (more…)
