Post at The Standard adds some details, including transcript.
Collins wants us to believe she understood "after the dinner" to mean the same evening rather than any later time. And that it was coincidence she corrected this misinterpretation after parliament could no longer ask her about it for a couple of weeks.
Then she has the gall to whinge about her and her family being "attacked".
The story also mentions RNZ's subsequent interview with Key (6m).

Unseemly whinging on Radio NZ (4m audio)
Hard to know what decision processes are used for List appointments.
a weakness in the current implementation, yes - but the concept of voters responding to lists that more accurately reflect the population than FPP did is easily borne out by the faces in parliament now compared with 20 years ago.
solely comprised of List MPs?
who asked for that?
its Easter so don't egg me on
wouldn't dreme of it
need to get elected rather than rely on the List
Under MMP, an electorate MP is no more deserving than a list one. The sooner silly FPP thinking like that dies out, the better.
Greens are not really that "left" - their view of economics is pretty conventional
that must be why they are still getting stick from the Nats for suggesting earthquake bonds, eh
Official business stats series do not restrict their definition to what IRD (or Steven Joyce) considers to be R&D.
We need more of both, but isn't our private share less than half what it should be?
I think the "private sector" does a lot of R&D
An opinion not supported by evidence, I'm afraid. NZ business has always skimped on R&D compared with other nations.
