New Zealand Prime Minister John Key: 'I'm not a reptile'

"I've never been in a spaceship, never been in outer space, and my tongue's not overly long either," Key says.

AUCKLAND , New Zealand, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- After an Auckland man put in an Official Information Act request asking for proof that New Zealand Prime Minister John Key is not actually a lizard alien from outer space, the politician officially addressed the issue when he was asked about it during an interview.

"To the best of my knowledge, no. Having been asked that question directly, I've taken the unusual step of not only seeing a doctor but a vet, and both have confirmed I'm not a reptile," Key said according to 3 News.

"So I'm certainly not a reptile. I've never been in a spaceship, never been in outer space, and my tongue's not overly long either."

For the record, Key described himself as "just an ordinary Kiwi bloke.”

Shane Warbrooke’s OIA request asked for "any evidence to disprove the theory that Mr John Key is in fact a David Icke style shapeshifting reptilian alien ushering humanity towards enslavement.”

Icke is a British author who apparently believes that many politicians are actually part of a “Babylonian Brotherhood” and are working to help serve the needs of a race of reptilian shape-shifting aliens.

Warbrooke’s OIA request was denied because "the document alleged to contain the information requested does not exist or cannot be found.” He wasn’t surprised with the response but sounded a little perturbed with how long it took. “They waited the full 20 working days they are allowed before getting back to me,” he said.
