Yep been used before and it still has relevance.


Hosea 8:7  For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if it shall yield, the strangers shall swallow it up. 

Bomber Harris in response to critics of his Bombing of German Cities,   

The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everybody else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At RotterdamLondonWarsaw, and half a hundred other places, they put that rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now, they are going to reap the whirlwind.

Norman Tebbit a long standing Conservative MP who survived the "Brighton Bombing" aimed at Margaret Thatcher and the party leadership and had his career cut short when he left Politics to be with his wife badly injured in that terrorist attack, used it in a lecture on the advance of the permissive society.

Bad art was as good as good art. Grammar and spelling were no longer important. To be clean was no better than to be filthy. Good manners were no better than bad. Family life was derided as an outdated bourgeois concept. Criminals deserved as much sympathy as their victims. Many homes and classrooms became disorderly - if there was neither right nor wrong there could be no basis for punishment or reward. Violence and soft pornography became accepted in the media. Thus was sown the wind; and we are now reaping the whirlwind.

It will be Karma indeed when the current sewers are drained and those gleefully dancing around the smoldering fires that have been lit with stolen data and breaches of privacy for citizens personal correspondence are added to the victim list.
Mr c with his call for a full inquiry may regret such a tactic when similar messaging from his allies and friends are released, as all the data released so far is rather selectively one sided and it may be assumed Slater's computer has communications with many from across the media and the political spectrum.

Either Hagar is naive and being used as a glove puppet or he is up to his bulging eyeballs in sleaze.
Are his various claims around his relationship with the party that removed data from the Whaleoil blog files an admission of guilt or a further move to muddy the waters, maybe both.
He originally claimed he had returned the raw data to the hacker and did not know who it was. since then his position is very dodgy, constantly changing and with the advent of whaledump the sewer is clearly holding a heap of rotting garbage.
Meanwhile Hagar is at present holding a position that the Hacker was a reluctant contributor to his book as he wished to leak selected data via Twitter and had to be persuaded to give Hagar first dibs. Hagar now says the hacker has become a friend.

Those dancing around the increasingly smelly campfire still embrace all that is happening and any damage is yet to be reflected in the polls as anything other than rearranging the deckchairs.

Whirlwinds can often be very destructive and non selective.

I for one would love to see those messages released. I suspect Cunliffe would also enjoy it, given that such messages are overwhelmingly likely to involve Labour people who are anything but his friends...

Why do you blub like it's you that's the victim in all this? All your little quotes apply to Key, Ede, Odgers, Slater, Collins and the National Party. They've done this to themselves, all the while thinking how oh so clever they are, and it's justice that they've been exposed. True you've been duped by them, but you'll get over it, as long as you accept that and acknowledge how nasty these people truly are.

Once again Snow - I would refer you to Proverbs 26:4 Why you are allowed to comment here at all speaks volumes for the tolerance of the blog owners.
