The Dominion Post has an amusing story on how the alleged bug in Tariana Turia’s former Ministerial House, may have been there for some years or decades, and whether other Ministers were bugged in that house.
Prebble talks about how he used to used to use a phonebox to avoid the insecure former analogue lines. He suggests Matt Robson who was also in the House is most likely to have been bugged as a member of the Communist Party. Robson confirms he was or is a member (as was Marian Hobbs) of the Communist Party and denies talking to Osama bin Laden.
Finally former occupant Murray McCully claims his life of “blameless excellence” would have ruled him out as a target. Heh.
