Pressure mounts for Key to release 'tea party' tapes

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 15 November 2011

Hints of what might be in the recording of a conversation between John Key and John Banks are starting to emerge, despite warnings from the police against disclosing the details. The conversation took place between the National Party leader and Act Party candidate when they met for their cup of tea last Friday. It was recorded by a freelance cameraman, Bradley Ambrose, who handed it on to the Herald on Sunday. TV3 says it has also obtained a copy. Mr Key says it was a covert recording, and he has complained to the police. The police have warned media they could be breaking the law if they disclose the contents of the recording.
