Political football with a prisoner
Well, well, well – we now know that this entire Karel Sroubek case has been a jack up from the start. I have argued that the ‘reading between the lines’ isn’t that he couldn’t return to Czechoslovakia, but that he’d cut a deal with Police for gang intel, and was hyper critical of how National could focus on this MDAM dealer case from a Minister following bad advice while ignoring the State House meth hysteria that cost $120million. When challenged on that advice and the throwing of 900 beneficiaries onto the street, National said it was a bit ‘dud‘.
Just ‘dud’ advice when National do it, hyperventilating ‘fire the Minister’ from John Armstrong at TVNZ when Labour do it.
If I had a bloody dollar for every time John Armstrong was baying for a Labour Party resignation for sins against the Political rule book of John Armstrong we could pay for Sroubek to return to Czechoslovakia, set up his own drug empire and export medicinal cannabis to him.
We know this is a jack up because Immigration NZ released their details on which Iain is facing crucifixion for and few in their right mind are going to start stoning him.
They’ve confirmed the report was 100s of pages long with a 12 page summary and it didn’t; include any reference to Sroubek returning to Czechoslovakia.
This entire fiasco has been a distraction for the public from focusing on the far bigger issues imploding within the National Party and we shouldn’t play ball.
This Sroubek thing is a storm in a tea cup while sectioning a dissident MP using anonymous sources for harassment and Chinese business influences attempting to buy two Chinese MPs is FAR more important for us to focus on.
