John Key owns shares in a mining company

I have just realised why John Key's private secretary has forwarded my email about mining in conservation areas to the Hon Ann Tolley, the part-Minister of Education.

It's to avoid conflicts of interest!

John Key owns shares in a mining company.

TV One's Q & A current affairs program
Register of Pecuniary Interests of Members of Parliament: Summary 2009. Scroll through to page 36.

This has generated a few headlines.

Key criticised over shares in uranium mining company.

Key steps into a political minefield.

Actually, I think this is a side issue to the main issue that Key and Brownlee are using factually incorrect information to argue for mining in conservation areas.
