I find it ironic that John Key's son is allegedly (good word that!) associated with someone who has been arrested for making a bomb.

Perhaps, all the GSCB/surveillance law changes were so he could keep an eye on his son:)

I find it depressing that the kids of famous people are seemingly considered fair game by the media now, purely by virtue of their parent's job. As far as I can see he wasn't accused of doing anything illegal, or even anything vaguely immoral, just being in the same photo as someone who was a bit shady. Plus, according to this link it would appear that the photo itself was a hoax, which is presumably why the story was pulled.

Even if it was true, if it wasn't for his father's job they wouldn't have cared for an instant about the alleged "transgression" - although how he was actually supposed to have transgressed, even if it was true, eludes me.

The media should stick to reporting on politicians and what they have done, or are alleged to have done, in their own right - and leave their kids alone.

I hope that the editor of the Herald will issue a fulsome personal apology to Max for this nonsense.

I'm not in favor of media censorship. Mr Key is more than old enough to take responsibility for this humor effort.

Good on him for trolling the herald like that.
