Hell hath no fury as a journo questioned. First The Herald reports that John Key has backed Winston Peters' compromise therapeutics bill but then John Key says 'Hang on a minute mate, we've never seen his compromise bill, they didn't show it to us. I'm prepared to back something different and here's what it is. We told Labour ages ago what we would back. What are you on about?'
It wouldn't be the first time a journo has stretched something out a little.
