‘The men in grey suits tell me nothing,’ says Key

Sources close to Key say that he hasn’t had much sleep lately, as the grey suits have been coming more often.

Sources close to Key say that he hasn’t had much sleep lately, as the grey suits have been coming more often.

Prime Minister John Key has today denied that the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) has been circumventing New Zealand law by accessing data from international spy network PRISM, though says if they did, he wouldn’t know, because “the men in grey suits tell me nothing.”

Key reports that the men in grey suits have been visiting him in his Prime Minister’s office every second morning since he took the job, and often bring to him papers in large binders that they ask him to sign without reading.

“Obviously I was a bit apprehensive at first,” he said. “But they bring bagels and delicious little nutty things, too. I thought that was quite nice, really. Next question?”

Key was then pressed further on the identity of the men in grey suits.

“Yeah, uh, look, as I’ve already said, they tell me nothing.”

The lights in the Beehive press room dimmed several times in quick succession.

“Yeah, okay, that’s usually a sign that I should go,” said Key, quickly collecting his things and being escorted from the room by two bodyguards.

The men in grey suits could not be reached for comment.
