The woman who went public about the Prime Minister repeatedly pulling her ponytail has been named by the New Zealand Herald, but has taken issue with the newspaper’s reporting tactics.
The waitress, who works in John Key’s favourite cafe, has written a second blog post, thanking people for their support following her revelations yesterday.
She said her decision to reveal the Prime Minister’s behaviour was a moral decision to put herself second and tell the truth.
“There is no shame in telling the truth, and it’s a lot easier to keep track of than a lie,” she wrote.
“A lie would be claiming that I accepted an apology or spoke the words ’that’s all fine, no drama’.”
The Herald has this morning published an exclusive interview with the woman.
But in her second post, she criticised the Herald for allegedly obtaining her comments under false pretences.
