At a press conference in his party's Auckland office this afternoon he said: "What is this controversy based on? Nothing. It is simply aimed at discrediting New Zealand First and its Leader."

He alluded to a conspiracy engineered by others for their own benefit. He asked journalists: "What are you left with?" and answered himself: "A campaign of innuendo, misrepresentation and character assassination promoted by some particular interests for their own purposes.
