Quote of the morning: On the art of dissembling [updated]

Question: You’ve said you’ll resign if there’s mass surveillance by the GCSB.
Key: Yep.
Question: Does that promise apply to mass collection of information as well?
Key: No.

- Prime Minister John Key at his Monday media conference

UPDATE: Or, in English: NZ PM retracts vow to resign if mass surveillance is shown.
