John Key tells Pansy to shhhhhh
Key: MP Wong will front up - but not yet
Prime Minister John Key says he expects MP Pansy Wong to front up on claims about her husband's business interests but has defended her delay in doing so.
Mr Key said this morning Ms Wong was advised to wait until a Parliamentary Services inquiry into her use of international travel discounts was complete before speaking about it.
Labour leader Phil Goff attacked Mr Key for "protecting" Ms Wong when it was already clear she had done wrong. He said it was for the inquiry and, possibly ultimately the courts to decide if Ms Wong's actions amounted to corruption.
Forget Pete Tong, it's all gone terribly Pansy Wong. Why the bloody hell is the Optimist Prime telling Pansy Wong to shhhh and stay quiet and not tell the media what she has done?
The PM's own man Kevin Taylor was in the press gallery referring to Pete Hodgson as a 'fuckwit' when Pete was asking questions about Pansy, wasn't that the time to ask staff to stay quiet? Shouldn't Pansy front and tell the media what she has done?
John's not very good when he's under pressure is he?
