The Prime Minister just lied to Parliament

Phil Goff just asked John Key whether his Department had done analysis of the costs and benefits and jobs created by his cycleway plan. Key's response? "Rigorous analysis was done".

I call bullshit.

Misleading the House is a serious contempt, and I am appalled the Prime Minister would do it, let alone so flippantly. But that's what you get when you have government by spin: casual lies.

Correction: corrected quote. Transcipt here.
