WB refers to the article on so called Ponygate http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11465613
The article included the statement;
"Mr McCready was quick to file papers. The litigator, who successfully prosecuted former Act leader John Banks, filed with the Human Rights Review Tribunal claiming sexual harassment by Mr Key."
WB was under the impression that the prosecution failed against John Banks. (If I was Banskie I would be lawyering up for defamation proceedings).
WB also understood that the unsuccessful prosecution was actually taken over (unwisely as it happens) by the Crown.
So, NZ Herald two mistakes in two lines of print.
Maybe the NZ Herald meant McCready's successful prosecution of Labour MP Trevor Mallard??
