John Key lies

Everybody knows that Key was lying – the secret is to force him to admit it.

One thing from today's news is that he has been talking with US officials extensively about the TPP and the US desire to extend copyright.

When it comes to a choice between his masters and telling the truth domestically, I think I know which way Key will go.

One video exposes Key, GCSB’s & Banks’ Dotcom lies

4 October, 2012

Watch this video of John Key being interviewed by the media on January 24th – four days after the Dotcom raid. First point: Key is clearly well-briefed on Dotcom. Second: he knows that Dotcom is a resident, so why didn’t he raise that a month later with GCSB? Third: How did Key know that Dotcom was a resident and GCSB didn’t? Fourth: Banks has told media he had dined at the mansion with Dotcom – months before denying remembering that meeting.

The fallout from this video will be massive.

Key is going to have to explain how he was so clearly well-briefed on Dotcom and the raid on January 24th, yet no-one had briefed him on the GCSB’s involvement.

He’s going to have to explain how, having already been aware of Dotcom’s residency by January 24th, he didn’t raise that as a problem with the GCSB when they told him they had been involved in the raid on February 29th – was he not paying attention, was he not aware of the law, did he already know, did he not care?

GCSB is going to have to explain how they could be unaware that Dotcom was a permanent resident until September (yeah, right) when Key knew immediately after the raid.

Banks. Well, Banks is screwed. There he is in January, telling media that he had eaten at Dotcom’s. Months later, he denied remembering that event. This is incontrovertible proof that Banks lied when his donations from Dotcom started to become exposed. He lied while he was a minister to the media and to New Zealand.

We knew this – but Key refused to know it. We had Dotcom’s lawyer’s statement – but Key said ‘that’s just one person’s statement’. Now, we have Key, on video, engaging in and acknowledging the fact that Banks remembered his dealings with Dotcom. Key can no longer pretend ignorance of the fact that Banks has lied to us all.

Pack your bags, Banksie. If it weren’t for the storm swirling around Key himself, Banks might still have survived this with Key’s resolute protection. Now, Key needs someone to throw under the bus.

Dotcom case raised with Key

at Hollywood dinner

5 October, 2012

Kim Dotcom and the Megaupload case was raised with Prime Minister John Key by former senator and chief executive of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) Chris Dodd at a dinner attended by top movie moguls last night.

Studio bosses also raised their concerns that the Trans Pacific Partnership should include strong intellectual property protection provisions, Mr Key told the Herald from Los Angeles this morning.

Mr Key is on a four-day trip to Hollywood, hosted by Avatar film-maker James Cameron and Mr Cameron's business partner Jon Landau. Mr Key is promoting New Zealand as a film-making location.

Last night at a dinner at Mr Landau's home which Mr Key said was attended by the "glitterazi of the movie making industry in Hollywood" Mr Dodd raised the Dotcom Megaupload issue, "in passing".

"He just essentially noted that the case was ongoing in New Zealand, and I just confirmed that and said yes. He didn't dwell on that."

A bid by US authorities to extradite Mr Dotcom from New Zealand to face movie piracy and racketeering charges is currrently mired in legal wrangling compounded by a domestic spying scandal.

Mr Key also confirmed that studio heads present, including the heads of Fox, Disney Warner Brothers, Universal, Sony and MGM studios, also "talked a bit about intellectual property, but really more in the context of TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) and those negotiations".

"Obviously they're making the case that they invest hugely in the creation of intellectual property and it's critically important for their capacity to continue to be able to invest for that intellectual property to be protected."

Mr Key said while the studio heads didn't know exactly what was being discussed in talks to establish the 11 country trade agreement, "they're certainly aware that it's a significant chapter in the TPP and they certainly made us aware it's an important issue to them".

Mr Key said Mr Landau and Mr Cameron both spoke about the benefits and merits of making films in New Zealand during the dinner and a short video presentation from Hobbit director Sir Peter Jackson was also shown.

"From our perspective it was very successful because it gave us a chance to present credible reasons about why New Zealand's a good place to make movies and television," Mr Key said.
