Mr Keizer said although there is no record of a secret taping being used as a political stunt "I think it was a simple thing to do". He came up with the idea within a day, believing that the National Party had secret agendas and there was no way they could keep them secret at a cocktail party.
"I thought that the National party wasn't really being truthful with its intentions so I conducted my own form of journalism, and was quite appalled by what I heard, so clearly thought it was in the public interest to have this information released."
Wrong Keizer! It's not in the public interest - it is in your own self-interest, and the interest of the Labour Party - the only beneficiaries of votes leaking for National. And why tape conversations in the first place if it was not your intention to release them? It sounds like a fair cop on the grounds of "malice aforethought" to us!!
Keeping Stock believes this was a cheap political stunt, condoned by the Labour Party - how else could you explain the sudden appearance of the Two Johns - Iraq advertisements on Tuesday night? I hope the incoming National government takes a VERY close look at Mr Keizer's immigration status.
