Matthew Hooton apology to Hon Steven Joyce

has asked Kiwiblog to publish this:

APOLOGY TO HON

On 2 March 2018 a column I wrote was published in the print edition of the NBR and on the NBR’s website.   It was titled: “Joyce sacking first test of Bridges’ leadership”. 

This article could reasonably be understood to suggest that the Hon Steven Joyce had engaged in unethical, dishonest and/or corrupt behaviour during his tenure as a Minister in the previous National Government.

Nothing in the column was intended to convey such suggestions, which would be untrue. I apologise to Mr Joyce for any harm caused as a consequence. 

Matthew Hooton
