In this media landscape where progressive voices challenging authority get strangled off on a near monthly basis, hearing that the NZ Police are suddenly looking for you gives one a slight cold shiver up your spine.
I’ve just been contacted by friends that the NZ Police are keen to speak to me*. A Detective no less. I’ve been asked to meet with the Police tomorrow at midday to discuss this blog by John Minto.
Mr Talley and his rich friends certainly seem to have a lot of pull to be able to get Detective’s to contact blogs wanting a chat about negative coverage.
I will state here so there is no confusion, I will not censor or remove John’s blog from this site.
I won’t be intimidated or threatened or pushed around by monied industries who make workers lives a misery.
I will explain that in polite language to the Police tomorrow.
If you don’t hear from me after midday Friday, I’m guessing it will be because I’m under arrest.
Welcome to the new world of intimidation.
UPDATE: *There seems to be some confusion over what I wrote here. Friends of mine were contacted by the Police asking about my where abouts and how I could be contacted and left their number. I called the Police yesterday and the Detective in charge of this wanted to come to my house to speak to me, I said no and that I would meet them midday today at a neutral location.
I will update after that meeting.
