Another conference conversation leaked

Barry Soper told Larry Williams on Newstalk ZB  that TV3 is going to play another tape of Bill English speaking at the National Party conference.

Barry said Bill was recorded saying something to the effect that elections are all about winning regardless of principles.

I find it difficult to believe that because Bill is a man of very strong principle.

It is possible to docotor tapes. And it’s not a coincidence that this was released the day after national released its tax policy.

The question is what else is on tape and when will it be released?

UPDATE: I’ve just listened to the tape on TV3 news, and it sounds like one of those statements which when taken out of context sounds bad, but as part of a conversation about the importance of winning is harmless.

    Did you hear the secret recording from the Labour conference where Helen Clark said they wont release any policy before the election because they haven’t got a clue what to do?

    Adolf – I didn’t realise that was a secret.

    Seems like Bill was just saying it’s all about winning…

    The great protector of Winston Peters said that it was a very cynical remark. You have to admire her brazen cheek…

    I vaguely recall the Prime Minister saying soemthing to the same effect some years ago.

  5. I thought Cullen did.
    But National wants to win the election.
    Whoooppie do!
    Tell me something else that’s new!

  6. Cicero says:

    Cullen said: “We won, you lost, eat that”.

    Sounds like TV3 are short of stories……

    At the standard they say racist comments are on the way from possibly a pissed JK. I am beginning to think the Nats are going to throw this election away, they are doing their best to do this. Tax policy looks like a fizzer even if it is prudent.
    That’s why Clark says its all about trust.
    Roy Morgan out tomorrow, see what it says about WP, Mr 5% man for RM.
