Prime Minister John Key has been cleared over accusations he misled Parliament when questioned about the blind trust that holds his assets.
Labour MP Pete Hodgson laid a complaint with Speaker Lockwood Smith claiming Mr Key misled Parliament - a serious offence.
Mr Hodgson alleged Mr Key misled the House when he said he didn't have access to his assets.
Mr Key rejected the allegations and released detailed legal advice about the Aldgate Trust.
Mr Key's office today released a letter from Dr Smith saying he had considered the complaint and found there was no case to answer.
John Key 2; Labour nil. Another attempted smear by Labour has ended in tears for the Red Team.
Oh dear; how sad; never mind! All we have to hope for now is that Labour will retain Phil Goff as Leader and Pete Hodgson as its chief strategist for the 2011 election.
UPDATE: Pete Hodgson is like a dog with a bone:
Mr Hodgson told reporters today he wasn't challenging the Speaker's ruling but the issue was not resolved.
Give it up Pete - he won, you lost; eat that! Sheesh, where have we heard those words before?
