I think we are witnessing a slow motion coup.

When Judith Collins appeared on weekend political shows a couple of weeks ago I first noticed something was in the air.

I even commented in my review at the time that it was odd for her to suddenly pop her head up.

She looked like she was flexing her muscles, sending a clear message, she looked like she was re-entering the ring.

Then suddenly like a zombie horror extra, Slater is back.

I think what we are watching in real time is a very Kiwi coup.

John Key could look down the barrel of the camera and lie to our faces, but English can’t.

Middle NZ rewards convincing political liars & punishes incompetent ones.

Bill English is being destabilised in front of our eyes because someone has reaped a heavy political price from deep personal pain. Todd has been sacrificed and Bill destabilised right when a totally fabricated Labour student slave story suddenly erupts via a right wing political news blog.

Who has fed this information to the NewsRoom?

Slater’s mate and right wing political strategist Simon Lusk argues that by polluting the political debate you turn voters off and the minority power block wins.

The evidence for that was 2014.

Watch how nasty this now turns. Blood is in the water.

Start watching Judith Collins, she will be timing her strike for the Leadership once the latest worst parts of this story make the news.

Someone is drip feeding this.

A Judith Collins and Winston Peters Government would be horrific wouldn’t it?

    If John Key and Steven Joyce publicly owned how the payout came from Keys slush fund it would diminish Bill English’s responsibility. This would not have been hidden without their complicity. With this seat being the one sent of the Nats majority. The staff involved were long term trusted staff of Bill’s in his electorate. I’ m sure he’d have wanted to hang the arrogant young there Todd Barclay out to dry..

    • Greg says:

      Its likely a post election loss line up, Judith is really the only choice for leading Natz after the election, she has a popular electorate. Key’s coat tail riders will be turfed, blue seats mostly gone.

      The spin about the tapes existence is moot, English rang Glenys to say there was one, nothing about content, notice that, she quit the next day.
      The Nat Trolls on the defensive about this is hilarious.

      Why is no one calling for Bill’s Police statement, and Natz should pay back ther hush money.

    Judith Collins would be worse if that’s possible.

    The message from English was to ” draw a line in the sand ” under todd-gate Key speak for enough damage done now focus on a diversion like the Americas cup instead.

    The story is starting to loose traction and the famous ” people are tired of the story ” time to move on is about to be rolled out any day now.

    • bert says:

      Sadly the Americas cup win will take oxygen from this story as the Rugby World cup has done in the past, to save the Natz.

        not now there are sex and drugs

        • mary_a says:

          @ Bruce … and despite this latest revelation from Newsroom, msm are pushing the Labour intern issue for all it’s worth, trying to nail Little! Undoubtedly to take the heat of Natz and English as the situation gets worse for government.

          What I’d like to know is where is Key? Considering he was PM at the time of this affair and obviously supported the cover up and lies, he has to be held accountable as well.

          • Quicksilver says:

            To some degree I reckon it’s a pathetic attempt to appear “balanced”.
            ‘Cos anything other than unfettered regurgitation of Natz spin and PR – which we’ve all become accustomed to – is just sooo unfair on the poor wee Nazional Party.

            Finding Key is easy. Dangle a ponytail on a fishing rod in front of a sign saying “Tax Haven here” and he’ll show up sooner or later.

          • bert says:

            Mary, given Key is as slippery as an eel, no one can get hold of him.

  4. CLEANGREEN says:

    Yep Martyn,

    I would agree with your take on this alright.

    How does SS Joyce fit in here???

    He is the Nactional political strategist and must be inside the Revolting Collins/Slater/ Lask tent right?

    Well Bill English, best you watch your back or maybe another John Key type takeover is in the wings now for sure!!!!!!!!

    They did it to you pre 2008 and will sure do this again as Shipley did to the last hollow man PM we had under National then in 1996/7.

    Is shapley in the Collins tent too????

    Lots ahaed here folks from the kings of “Dirty politics”.

  5. Margaret says:

    Unusually, on Sunday night, post National Conference. TV3 News chose an unflattering image of Bill English staggering away from another contradictory statement regarding the Todd Barclay scandal.

    Also unusually tonight on TV3 The Project, Jesse Mulligan had more than his usual grin, when he listed all of the categories of unfortunate people that are excluded from the claim by Bill English to be working for ALL New Zealanders.

  6. David Stone says:

    I think Collins is astute enough to suss that she would loose the election for the nats. Her ploy will be to let English ran with a better chance with the electorate and have her knife ready as soon as it’s won.

    • David says:

      She is not astute enough to realize most New Zealanders can’t stand her butch,arrogant attitude. She’s not someone you’d invited around for tea the dog wouldn’t like the competition for the greasy bone.

  7. Jack Ramaka says:

    Collins will pick up the pieces of the National Train Wreck which is gathering momentum as it heads towards the coming 2017 Election, there will be plenty of scandal over the next three months it could be more exciting than the Americas Cup.

    Will Winston Peters finally have his day in the sun and see the National Party ground into the dirt evidently 800 people turned up to NZF’s campaign launch in Palmerston North on Sunday. Not bad for a small country town in NZ. Evidently a good proportion of the crowd were under 40 years of age ?

  8. countryboy says:

    As you point out. It’d be like living within a horror movie that we couldn’t turn off, wake up from or walk out of. I guess we just have to smash the TV set. It’s up to us as to how this plays out.

    The real problem is ‘us’ and our back bone deficit.
    I let brownlee lumber past me at Ch Ch AP and I never even called him a fat …….. ! I’m deeply ashamed of myself for that. For all my bluff and bluster, I failed to come up to my own expectations. I think it was the shock of seeing that big sour faced goof pushing his way through a side door, deftly side stepping the masses. Is that what training is all about? To be prepared to deal with shock situations? They spend all their days scheeming and scamming while we just work at our jobs, look after the kids, pack our swag for another days pointless walking or sit and shit ourselves while praying for God in a sweltering rest home as some ‘entrepanuer’ rifles through our dressing gown pockets?As you point out.

    I watched a film recently and set in Iceland. Yay. Ice. A young American couple holidaying in Iceland. They wake up one morning to discover they were entirely alone on Earth. No explanations, no reason, no dead bodies.
    It was a brilliant yet wretched thing that just got darker and darker and just when I was about to slash my wrists I thought “ No… Wait a minute? There’s going to be a rosy end to this. I can see it coming. The young man and the young woman? They’re going to be ok. All will be well. They’ll find others, there’ll be a party, someone will turn up with a dog and a kitten. “
    I was wrong.
    ‘This’ is our lives they’re fucking around with. They’re bullying us and deliberately impoverishing is for their weird pleasures and profits. We must script a different end to our story. A gristly coalition of collins, dirty little peters and with slater slithering around in the wings might just be the wake up call we need. I really hope I’m not fucking wrong again.

    • Jack Ramaka says:

      I don’t think a coalition of Collins, Winston Peters and Slater would last very long ?

      • Indeed, Jack.

        I’m reminded of the Shipley/Peters National/NZ First coalition. That was “gone by lunchtime” and NZ First was literally torn in half.

        If Peters hasn’t learned from that bitter experience, he’d be a fool.

  9. Luke says:

    Nobody will care about dirty politics now they are all euphoric about the boat race and all black victories.

    • Jack Ramaka says:

      Yep this Americas Cup Win should secure another term for National NZ voters will be on a high until later in the year ?

      Just the tonic Bill needed after the pressure of the Hot Toddy Affair ?

      • bert says:

        The police have re-opened the case. They will also investigate the pressure on Dickson by Glenda Hughes. The story will be in the headlines a little longer.

        • As I messaged Radio NZ this evening, Bert, I hope English is more upfront, honest, and has his story straight for the Police than he has been thus far with the New Zealand public.

          • bert says:

            Well said Frank. Having seen the protection goon squad of Parliaments Speaker today, they are working overtime to shut this story down. The P.M had the gall (and was allowed too by the Speaker)to respond to questions of him by attacking Little over the smokescreen of the volunteers recently recruited by Labour.

            Which can only lead to one conclusion, Bullshit Bill is as guilty as sin.

  10. Wenderella says:

    Who’s running the sweep on the date for the takeover? I’d be wanting my $20 on two weeks post election

  11. bert says:

    Andrew Little was ashamedly labelled “angry” by the nasty right wing. Well I have one now which is so 100 % true…

    Bullshit Bill

  12. Quicksilver says:

    Aaron Gilmore. Mike Sabin. Gerry Brownlie. John Key. Judith Collins. Alfred Ngaro. Nicky Wagner. Todd Barclay.
    A wee sample of some pretty classy Nats, eh?! Yeah nah.

    • bert says:

      Bennett the Benefit Basher has an appalling persona,Nick Smith and Simon 10 Bridges just to add another to your list.

      It seems odd that both Key and English have stated that their ministers “must not become arrogant”. I get the feeling that the “not” in that sentence, is silent.

  13. Jum says:

    I wondered when someone would pick up on this; given the media are owned by NAct, this latest attack on the right was never for the benefit of New Zealanders’ truth news story.
