Constable Main didn't think Doone was intoxicated

From the PCA Report page 5:
"He didn't appear intoxicated. I gained no indication that he had been drinking"
And Constable Main said similar in his Brief of Evidence written on 22 April 2005:
21. I have read the article from the Sunday Star Times dated 16 January 2000. The headline for this article is 'Doone case cop was ready to breath test'. This article reported that I had said to the Commissioner that I wanted to breath test the driver of the car. I did not say that to the Commissioner. I know I had the sniffer with me but I can't remember whether it was in my hand or my pocket. When I got out of my car, I had no intention of breath testing anyone at that stage. I only grabbed the sniffer from the car in case I needed it. I recall that I did not even mention EBA (excess blood alcohol) procedures or breath testing to the Commissioner.

Ah yes, and where did the SST get that (false) information from? Our PM, that's who.

Good Lord, and where on Earth did Trevor Mallard get the impression Peter Doone was drunk?
No wonder he said it in the house, under parliamentary priviledge.
Such honesty from such a truthful couple.

Bretherengate raised the issue.
Labour are raising the integrity of Don Brash over the EB leaflets- leaflets Labour and the Greens said came from National.
Now, we know the leaflets came from the EB. Thus Labour lied.
Labour are on weak ground raising integrity and honesty.
These latest Doonegate papers clearly show how the PM and Trevor Mallard lied to the Sunday Star-Times, to parliament, etc.
If they did not, there is only one way out of it. Release the tapes or transcripts of the conversations between the SST editor and the PM. You know, the ones where the story was checked over 5 times. And the PM stuck to her story.
And followed it up with a threatening letter , with the involvement of other ministers. Thus, they were all in it together.
Deceit and conspiracy on a grand scale. Makes the EB an irritating sideshow by comparison.
Thanks Labour and the left for questioning Don's integrity. Stones, glasshouses, anyone?
