Kim Dotcom is getting really chatty about politics on Twitter lately.  You can see the tension is getting to him.

Duncan Garner on the “sham” and “rort” that is the Internet Party

Following in Paddy’s footsteps, Duncan lets fly

The Internet-Mana Party alliance is a sham and a rort, but MMP allows for it – which is the worst bit.

I’ve seen nothing like it in the history of NZ politics. It is far less transparent than the dodgy electorate seat deals National has done over the years. New Zealanders have every right to be outraged.

This is about an already convicted criminal – a rich internet tycoon wanted on piracy charges, no less – on the run from the United States and sheltering in New Zealand. He’s a had a run in with the NZ Government and the US authorities, so he’s doing all he can to buy his way out of trouble.

It now includes pulling out his cheque-book and paying for a political party and buying people off – so he can keep his sorry backside out of the clink.

It’s as simple as that: he’s paying big money so he doesn’t turn into some sort of dribbling mess behind bars – some reports suggest he’s pumped $4m into setting up this party. So how much is he paying his people?

I asked new leader Laila Harré yesterday, she said she wasn’t sure yet. But money between the two will change hands at some stage, she’s clear on that.

How ridiculous is this, really?   Would anyone just rush to Kim Dotcom and work for free without any sort of employment agreement, contract or letter of understanding?  Would it not at least outline the terms of the agreement, including remuneration?

Here is an even more scary thought:  She did just get started and is winging it. Read more »

URGENT WARNING to Orcon Media and Comms – end promotion featuring Kim Dotcom

A reader writes:

Hi Cam,

I have had enough of seeing that Kim Dotcom all over the place and now even my ISP has shacked up with him.  Feel free to publish my ultimatum to Orcon below.  Please redact my name and contact details.

Amazing, the media auto reply was from an actual persons address at Orcon!

Thanks,

Hi there

We are Orcon customers for past 3-4 years. The service has been generally good and we have had no reason to consider changing service provider.  In fact we are currently considering extending the range of services that we purchase.   Read more »

Predictions results

Ok so here were my predictions from January…how did I go?

1. National Party MPs will cringe every time Hekia Parata is asked a question in the house, and will avoid being in the house when they know Hekia is going to be rinsed.

Went pretty much as predicted…and got progressively worse as the year progressed, saved only by inept Labour questioners who were more distracted by fighting amongst themselves over the leadership.

2. Nanaia Mahuta remains anonymous and never holds Hekia to account.

Yup, neither did anyone else which is bizarre because she is tits and a legend in her own mind.

3. Iain Lees-Galloway’s missus is still dirty with him every time he mentions a certain stenographer.

Not much has changed here.   Read more »

Attention Seeking Fat German promises grandstanding again

I see the fat German criminal is grandstanding again:

Internet millionaire Kim Dotcom has vowed to help fund Team New Zealand’s next America’s Cup campaign.

The team’s future hangs in the balance after Oracle Team USA retained the Cup in San Francisco yesterday, with boss Grant Dalton’s position uncertain and the Government yet to confirm whether it would fund another tilt.

The Government stumped up $36 million for the latest campaign, but Prime Minister John Key yesterday said decisions were yet to be made about whether it would help again.  Read more »

The Huddle at 1740

newstalkzb

I am on The Huddle tonight with host Larry Williams and Josie Pagani.

Our topics will be:

The pay out for Halatau Naitoko’s family over his death. A quick recap is that the AOS shot and killed him when they were meant to be aiming for the bad guy! He was just driving along the motorway as a courier driver and got caught up in the police mess to catch the baddie.

Now it’s a three horse race for the Labour leadership with Jones, Robertson and Cunliffe all putting their names forward to be voted on. The nasty has already started  and I would imagine to at some point they’re going to really start pointing out each other’s weaknesses and then after the winner is declared they’ve all got to go back to work as a “united” party.   Read more »
