Poll: The Todd Barclay affair: Do you actually care?

  • 21/06/2017

Both Prime Minister Bill English and MP Todd Barclay have made a complete u-turn over allegations that Mr Barclay secretly recorded a staff member.

In the span of just four hours on Tuesday, Mr English changed his story on the secret recordings from "I can't recall" to "I told police".

And Mr Barclay has changed his tune too. On Tuesday morning he was repeatedly denying the allegations, telling media: "I've seen the allegations and I totally refute that."
