The corruption sagas continue



It's getting hard trying to keep up with it all.

But the Liarbour-NZFirst axis seems rotten to the core.

One of the Spencer Tust trustees is former National MP Roger McClay, who now fundraises for NZ First.

As David Farrar says succinctly:

Pretending you know nothing about the Spencer Trust when one of your staff members runs it, doesn’t hold up well.

Rodney Hide is pushing for Winnie's bagman Ross Meurant to be called in for questioning over the scampi affair. He is apparantly overseas, possibly in London, and may be offered immunity from prosecution for him to spill the beans.

The Hive also notes Uncle Helen's attempts to sway media coverage.

And then we have Whale Oil's odd postings of Devonport Wharf and comments about a 'starry, starry night.' What do they mean? No wonder the lefties hate him. He could single-handedly bring down Helengrad with his deep -throat revelations.

No wonder Liarbour is rattled, note the commentators, with Dear Leader even 'killing Peters with kindness' as Dear Leader tries to salvage the scene. Fortunately, despite Liarbour smears, National further steams ahead.

But when heads start rolling, whose will they be?And will it be before polling day or afterwards?

Apparently the Prime Ministers staff think Slater is hilarious: I'm sure it does their morale no end of good to imagine all their opponents are poisonous little half-wits cast in the Slater mold.

More fool them - they'll be laughing out of the other side of their mouths when they're in Paremoremo!

Danyl, is that when they are not busy concocting diversionary anonymous letters to MPs from staff members of the SFO? Or writing press releases for government departments?

FFM, are you going for irony by mentioning "Labour smears" in a post which is essentially one big smear attack on Labour?

A few points:
1. If there's evidence of NZ First corruption, it's evidence of NZ First corruption, not "Liarbour" corruption.

2. There is no Labour-NZ First "axis," any more than there was a "National-NZ First axis" when they were in coalition.

3. The two names you link with the NZ First corruption in this post are both ex-National MPs. That still doesn't mean there's a National-NZ First "axis," but it does mean you've a damn cheek trying to tar Labour with it.

4. If Whaleoil can singlehandedly bring down the govt by saying "Starry starry night" and "Devonport Wharf," can I singlehandedly bring down National by saying "The Sound of Silence" and "Jade Stadium?"

PM, I trying my best but I can't remember a time when the secretly arranged funding for ACT or visa versa. It's quite difficult to find a time when National legislated retrospectively to legalise it and its coalition partner's criminal embezzlement of taxpayer funds. It is exceedingly difficult to remember when National legislated to disband the sherrif's posse just as they were about to discover some pretty serious shenanigans. I could go on but comments, like questions in the house, need to be short and to the point.

bugger

Should read ' when the National Party secretly arranged funding for ACT.....'

One day we'll get a comments edit facility.

You have some evidence that Labour secretly arranged funding for NZ First, Adolf? Journos would love to hear from you if you do...

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Milt, you'd better go and read Mr Glenn's testimony. All they have to do is ask but none has. Any serious journalist by now would have lined the PM and Peters up and asked the serious hard questions about the terms which were negotiated for the Poodle's baubles. You can be sure funding for the Poodle would have been on the list.

That's a hell of a lot closer to reality than the bloody nonsence being put about over the last two days by Clark and Cullen about John Key.

of course not: the problem is there is a vast amount of evidence of Labour Corruption

whether the police, civil service staffing, rorting elections or buying coalition partners.

It's not secret any more, is it?

Let's see - what's in the public records.

Helen talks to Williams; Williams talks to Gleen;
Williams talks to Winston; Winston talks to Glenn; Glenn talks to Williams; Williams talks to Helen; Glenn talks to Winston; Winston gets a cheque;

Dave said...

.. youve missed one bit out. In between "Williams talks to Helen" and " Glenn Talks to Winston" we have Williams talks to Glenn"

Anon: I meant evidence that exists outside your head.

Anonymous said...

Dave: oops, yeah.

PM: I think it was all broadcast live on TV3.

Psycho Milt said...

Well, I didn't watch it live on TV3, not being able to conceive of having that little to do with my time. But I did see Glenn interviewed, in which he gave the following info:

1. Winston asked him to donate to NZ First.

2. Being a Labour supporter, Glenn asked them whether they'd object to that.

3. Given that NZ First had just become their coalition partner, unsurprisingly there was no objection.

From there, you guys have leapt to Helen Clark secretly arranging this, that and the other. We've had this conversation before, and the gaping logical chasm you have to fill to back up your claims hasn't got any smaller. The fact that it's filled entirely to your satisfaction inside your own head by your paranoid delusions lacks relevance outside your head.
