Cough, cough, bullshit Steve, and you know it

via Newstalk ZB

Jo Moir writes about politicians election memories and notes the following from Steve Joyce.

Joyce fast forwarded to the campaign, the fifth he’s managed for the party, and publicly denied the National Party was responsible for leaking NZ First leader Winston Peters’ superannuation details.

He says the first he heard of it was when it hit the media and if someone had come to him with the idea, which nobody did, he said he would have told them to “flush it down the toilet”.

No one came to him with the idea because it was his! That’s why National party caucus members mumble about “Joyce’s Winston Plan” in hushed tones. Pretty senior National MPs too…ones very close to the leadership.

Joyce also denied “going after NZ First” and said he never thought National MP Matt King would beat Peters in the Northland seat.

On the negotiations Joyce said he doesn’t think the leak, Northland or any other factors were responsible for NZ First forming a coalition with Labour.

“It may surprise you, but I, in this case, believe Winston when he said on the night of the announcement that he had a choice between the modified status quo and major change and he wanted to go with major change. I think it’s as simple and complex as that.”

Go on, convince yourself of that Steve…you know that’s bullshit too.
