And the terror starts to set in. I’ve never seen blind panic like this before and it’s spreading as the enormity of what’s about to happen starts to sink in.
Hager’s book is a mere entree, Nicky’s personal ethics wouldn’t allow him to publish the more disgusting elements of what the emails revealed, sadly for Slater and the National Party, the hacker who has taken these emails has no such qualms. Their position seems to be ‘when my enemy is drowning, throw them an anvil’.
One anvil incoming.
Whaledump has the potential to reveal the full picture and the full picture is just so much more disgusting and damaging than what is currently out in front of the public, that’s why those within National and the Right who are being informed just how vile that picture is are putting as much distance between themselves and Slater as they humanly can.
It’s why David Farrar who was so gleeful that Kim’s staff were leaking but cried like a baby when it happened to him is now all of sudden promising a new leaf. He know’s what his mates have been up to and he is feeling that wave of revulsion as he walks through Wellington and he needs to put distance between him and what comes out next.
That’s why Bill English has come out and put distance between him and Collins. He knows what they have said.
The pressure is getting to dear wee Slater who today slagged Ede off…
Whaleoil blogger Cameron Slater has described his man in the Beehive as “squeamish” and “gutless” for not fronting up to the media and talking about their relationship.
…clearly ties have been cut and Slater is finding out what the cold shoulder feels like.
I love how every time he opens his mouth he manages to make himself seem like even more of a dead eyed monster…
“I play politics like Fijians play rugby. My role is smashing your face into the ground.
“Politics is a nasty despicable game and its played by nasty despicable people. Where’s the surprise in this?
“There’s a lot of people want to be involved in politics but there are not very many people who want to say and do things. The vast majority of people are squeamish.
“The squeamish people are gutless, they run for the hills, they don’t speak to the media. And you have to question that – look at all the people who are running and hiding and not talking where I’m the one speaking to the media. If it all comes down to me I’m prepared to front.”
…let’s hope the stress doesn’t lead to a gun rampage.
Key of course is screwed. If he removes Judith Collins, she will go rogue and do everything she can to destroy National’s chances of winning ending his run as leader so no matter how radioactive she is, he has to stand by her.
It’s hilarious that his claim now is that poor wee Judith is the victim of a smear campaign – John, providing evidence to showing how awful Judith and her evil little henchmen are isn’t a smear campaign, it’s telling the truth!
I predict checkmate in 3 moves.
