What Judith Collins told the Chisholm inquiry – part 1

Let’s be perfectly clear about it – Judith Collins was fighting for her political life at the Chisholm inquiry into  ‘Allegations regarding the Honourble Judith Collins and a former Director of the Serious Fraud Office’. That a serving Justice minister should be forced to resign (she says she offered, but let’s face it, that’s what John Key telephoned her […]

Emmerson on Judith Collins rejoining John Key’s Cabinet

Priceless. I love the detail on her tatoos: Oravida and Slater Jnr’s toxic brand. Wow.

‘Taking one for the team’ (The tl;dr version of Slater Jnr at the Chisholm inquiry)

This is a photo (right) of Cameron Slater arriving at the Wellington venue for one of the inquiries into his involvement in a conspiracy sparked by the revelations of Nicky Hager’s book Dirty Politics. Over several hours on 24 October 2014, Chisholm inquiry records show, Slater Jnr comprehensively walked back from claims and assertions he […]

[Source documents] Judith Collins Lester Chisholm Inquiry evidence

As mentioned in The Judith Collins Chisholm inquiry: Who was actually on trial?, the following documents (except ‘Lester Chisholm Inquiry Report’) were released under an Official Information Act request. They are the redacted witness transcripts and evidence presented to the inquiry, as well as Lester Chisholm’s final report. Note: There is a total of 60 […]

What the Chisholm inquiry revealed about managing the media narrative

Photographer Chris Gorman caught this image (above) of two of the Dirty PR conspirators putting on a brave face after the Chisholm inquiry report was published. NZ Herald journalist David Fisher referred to the report’s finding of an “extreme campaign against the former SFO boss Adam Feeley carried out by Slater and Odgers” in “a […]

Slater Jnr – If bullshit were music, he’d have a brass band

Earlier some genius said this: What it’s useful to know about Cameron Slater is that he’s not an original thinker, or a leader, or ‘creative’ in anything but in an aping, derivative way. …History, and his own testimony, shows us that Slater Jnr is a shallow puppet, a ball-boy, a caddie, someone who does other […]

The Judith Collins Chisholm inquiry: Who was actually on trial?

Reinstating Judith Collins to his cabinet this week, NZ Prime Minister John Key deployed a dogs-balls-obvious talking point that the Papakura MP had been “completely cleared” … “through an independent inquiry”. Here’s a clip: Spot the talking point: “completely”. MP3 file Watch a video of him saying it when he announced his cabinet reshuffle in […]

Analysing Slater Jnr’s attack blog ghostwriters, including Carrick Graham

Oh no. Is Michelle Boag ALSO ‘defaming’ Cameron Slater and his commercial attack website?

Is Colin Craig ‘defaming’ Cameron Slater and his commercial attack website?

So, Colin Craig is pushing back against the protracted Dirty Politics-esque smear campaign that Cameron Slater and some of his muppets carried out against him, presumably on behalf of shadowy ‘clients’. Slater Jnr may deny it (he is, after all a proven liar who “talks big up from nothing”),  or he may say his ‘clients’  were, […]

‘Harmful’ online speech. Outlawing castigation? Cactus Kate tries to vanish.

On three occasions during my ‘career’ as an online critic and avenging angel I have deliberately pulled back from castigating a ‘target’. In all three cases, I became concerned at what appeared to me to be the real possibility that the person whose actions and modus operandi I was criticising might do themselves physical harm […]

‘Dirty Politics’ revisited: More evidence of deceit and covering tracks

It’s funny how the brain works. Earlier this week, I passed a copy of Nicky Hager’s book Dirty Politics on to a new workmate after he’d expressed a harshly negative opinion of Hager — but when I asked him if he’d read any of Hager’s books he admitted he had not. Rather than lend him mine, I […]

The P word PLAGIARISM in today’s news aggregation game

Note: Just this morning, 13 April 2015, while searching for a graphic in the media library of this blog to insert in a comment, I came across this post (below) in ‘drafts’ from July 2014. I have no idea why I neglected to publish it at the time. Reading it again this morning, I found […]

“Cameron Slater/Whaleoil is a bastard and we’ll do him over.” Reaping what you sow.

By happy coincidence, as I was driving with family to Hunua Falls (above) for a swim and a picnic on Good Friday, I tuned into Radio NZ National in time to hear a panel discussion from a book festival held in Christchurch last year. It featured Guardian reporter and The Snowden Files author Luke Harding, Perth (Australia) […]

Leaving ‘Dirty Politics’ questions hanging. (It’s a PR strategy)

This recently published wrap of one aspect of the PR attack blog activities of Cameron Slater1 on behalf of his clients idealogical soulmates illustrates a couple of things. 1) Calls to ‘seek answers’ from corporate groups (like the Ports of Auckland, or even Auckland Council) to ‘questions raised’ will often be ignored. People and organisations under […]
