Truth finally clarified

Long after all the words over the statement 'we would love to see wages drop', the truth has been outed with a 'point of clarification' by the Bay Report.
that the paper is not disowning the reporter's transcript. It is is saying that if what Key had said left the impression he wanted to lower wages, that would be incorrect.

Not an apology or a retraction. Just an acknowledgment that a fair interpretation of the whole transcript would be quite the reverse. So why did it take the paper so bloody long to issue the clarification? Maximising political points?

Now maybe this over-flogged horse the Labour leeches settled upon will be left to peacefully rot and Mr Key takes on board a salutary lesson in wordplay.
