So, let me get this straight

Nicky Hager obtains messages between Cameron Slater and associates that implicate staff in the Prime Minister's office and the Minister of Justice in significant wrongdoing.  According to the Prime Minister, this constitutes nothing more than a baseless left-wing conspiracy theory.

Senior National Party officials obtain a message between Cameron Slater and associates that implicates the Minister of Justice in significant wrongdoing.  According to the Prime Minister, this constitutes a serious matter that requires the Minister to resign and a full investigation to be carried out.

I'm confused...

Yep, looks like the thieves in NZ have more staus than those that own the copy.
Tell all the prison imates(Labour Voters), that they can all go loose as steeling in no longer a crime to be tackled by the POLICE as it should be.

You really don't get it do you, Milt? Let me explain:

Helen Klark once signed her name to a charity painting that wasn't done by her own hand. . . such corruption huh? Slater and Collins haven't done anything anywhere as bad in comparison!

National Good. Labour Bad !

Remind us all of your outraged reaction to the hacking, theft and selective and context free publishing of climate scientists' emails, would you, chief? Wouldn't want you to be thought of as a tool, so surely a link to your condemnation of the hackers is in order. Cheers, wanker!

It doesn't.

For one thing, there's no indication as to how National received the message it published, so whether 'stolen' is a genuine difference or not isn't clear (and judging by the fact that what National has looks like a phone camera photo of someone's computer screen, my money would be on their one also being stolen.

For another, how the information was obtained is a separate matter for the police to deal with - it's not relevant to how the information itself should be considered.
