Don't Tell Porkies to Reporters

One of the best pieces I've seen for a while, with a wonderful finish which sums up this lame, lamentable, bullshitting bully:

'A week ago Mr Benson-Pope thought he had come up with a new way to solve an age-old problem. Finding a pesky Dominion Post reporter on the other end of his cellphone, he extemporised. "Hello, hello. I can't hear you, hello, hello, you're breaking up."

Unfortunately for the then minister, it was not his reception that was breaking up. It was his reputation.'
