Who need lies, corruption, dodgy deals, meddling ministers and a Golden Boy in trouble when you can whip up a scandal over the opposition leader echoing the Finance and Treaty Negotiations Minister over points of New Zealand history.
Once more the media missed Baygate.
And amid its complications, we had a delicious turn of phrase from David Cunliffe.
I mean what is a 'factual misunderstanding?
I guess Liarbour have to keep inventing new words for the many lies they make.
Next, Dear Leader will have "mis-spoken" just like Hillary Clinton.
Anyway, there is a story here.
Not just the corruption, but the 'factual misunderstandings' of a minister who now looks like he won't go all the way to the top after all!
The Hive also thinks David Cunliffe could well be history!
