It is vital in this crisis control of the meltdown that Key comes across as relaxed and not agitated, if he does he gives the game away on how damaged they are. He has to keep denying and claiming he hasn’t read the book to escape specific questions, which is why Hager’s threat to release the emails will be so damaging.
