Just as Bill English and John Key were moving to shut down the Kiwibank controversy, 3News has received more recordings which suggest National has a hidden agenda.
3News has been in contact with the person who made the secret recordings of Bill English at the National Party Conference on Friday night, who had further secret recordings of Lockwood Smith.
The recordings, where Smith was talking to conference delegates, suggest the National Party have a secret agenda.
Smith was recorded as saying:
“There’s some bloody dead fish you have to swallow… to get into Government to do the kinds of things you want to do… and you have to balance up what really matters.”
“If you try to do everything differently you’ll scare the horses and under MMP it’s very hard to win.”
