The irony of the SFO investigating National

By   /   March 13, 2019  /   8 Comments

What a week to be progressive in NZ.

One of our billionaires has been hit for $200m in tax!

Cameron Slater was  ordered to pay $70 000 in damages for one of his character assassination campaigns.

And the Police handed the JLR allegations to the Serious Fraud Office.

What the last one manages to do is provide a glorious irony.

A couple of years ago, Judith Collins and Slater’s attack blog team were embroiled in an attempted hit job on the head of the SFO, today the SFO are investigating National for possible donation fraud.

Lovely.

Good week comrades, good week.

    Doubt whether the SFO will find anything ?

  2. Priss says:

    The best outcome will be prosecutions made just before next year’s election. That will cripple the Nats for years to come.

    Well said, Sally (my fantastic partner!)

    The sooner Bridges and his mates are convicted in a court of law, the better. Arrogant, self-entitled a*seh0les, the lot of them!!

    OOOOOH hooo hooo hooo !!!

    Thank you for reminding us of that fact , Mr Bradbury , … indeed they were… indeed they were.

    Now , – doesn’t that tell you how much corruption was behind the ChiNational party ???

    Nicky Hager and such as yourself, – being dragged through the gutters on orders from on high, why hasn’t Key been investigated for illegal mass surveillance and assault? The illegal raid on Kim Dotcom??? The cozy TAX HAVENS ???.

    Now we see for definite where all the dirty bloody SHIT was coming from.

    Oh yes, we most certainly do.

    Straight from FK JONKEY’S OFFICE . And helped by his little stooges Judith Collins and ‘I never speak to him’ Cameron Slater.

    But you know what they say ‘ what comes round, goes round ‘.

      The assault is what I can’t get my head around. Key repeatedly, despite the waitress in question asking him not to on multiple occasions, fondled her hair. And then laughed about it, claimed it was just a bit of harmless fun, and tried to buy her forgiveness with a couple of bottles of pinot noir. Then Rachel Glucina shows up, misrepresents herself as a PR rep, and conducts a hit job in Granny Herald insinuating the waitress is some dodgy Labour party activist with an axe to grind (she has “strong political opinions”). She actually texts Key, saying “Just interviewed the waitress. Piece of work! Massive political agenda”. Key shrugs, smirks and walks away scot-free.

      If anyone else had repeatedly touched up a random stranger in a public place, they’d be subject to the full force of the law. But Teflon John? Nah. It was just a bit of innocent horseplay, mate. Fucking sickening. The Press Council hauled Granny Herald over the coals for their shameful behaviour, but it was all quickly forgotten in a whirlwind of smiles, waves and $26 million dollar flag referendums.
