New Zealand conservative leader Colin Craig said he had "no idea" whether astronauts had landed on the moon...
Asked about the moon landing conspiracy - which suggests the Apollo landings were faked by the US government - Mr Craig replied: "I don't have a belief or a non-belief in these things, I jut don't know."

Asked again, Mr Craig said he had "no idea" whether man had walked on the moon.

"That's what we're told. I'm sort of inclined to believe it. But at the end of the day, I haven't looked into it. And I know there's some very serious people that question these things."

Meanwhile, Prime Minister John Key says Craig may be deliberately "winding up" reporters with his provocative comments about conspiracy theories to attract media attention.
Mr Key said: "All I can say is I had dinner with (moon landing astronaut) Buzz Aldrin once, he looked pretty convinced he'd been there, and he'd know."

Commentator comment today - some nice puns in there - even referencing the popular 1970's pink knitted lunar inhabitants from the BBC.
