LIZARD-LIKE?: An Official Information Act request was made to John Key's office asking for evidence disproving the prime minister was reptilian. No evidence could be found.

Who's to say Prime Minister John Key isn't a reptilian overlord in disguise?

Key's own office certainly can't; its response to an official information request was that it had no data to disprove the theory.

The response came after Shane Warbrooke requested "any evidence to disprove the theory that Mr John Key is in fact a David Icke-style shape reptilian shifting alien ushering humanity towards enslavement".

Key's chief of staff responded this month, saying "no such information existed" to probable cries of "they would say that" from conspiracy theorists.

David Icke is a former British footballer and broadcaster who descended into ridicule after claiming he was the "Son of the Godhead" and promoting conspiracy theories, which he has since turned into books.

At the heart of his theories lies the idea that a secret group of reptilian humanoids called the Babylonian Brotherhood controls humanity, and that many prominent figures are in fact reptilian.
