From The Press today, letters to the editor.
UPDATE: from David Farrar
Iâ€™ve either been hacked or spied on

I started reading more fully the Nicky Hager book yesterday, and the footnotes in the book. To my shock IÂ realised that Hager had info in the book that could not have come from the hacking of Cameron Slater, but could only have come from my computer, my apartment or myÂ office.
Specifically he refers to copies of two scripts used by my company, Curia Research, this year. There is absolutely no way they could have come from Cameron Slaterâ€™s computer systems, as Cameron doesnâ€™t have them. No one has them but me and my office.
Today’s face of the day is the hacker who hacked us and stole personal correspondence to pass on to Nicky Hagar.
Was he paid to do the job? Was it really as Hagar claims motivated by the Feral post or is that just a smoke screen for the real reason?
I don’t believe it was those angry people from the West Coast. They showed their anger by issuing death threats against Cam and gang rape threats against our daughter. They started a HATE Facebook page and attacked via social media.
A Hacker attack suggests another motivation entirely in my opinion.It is no co- incidence that the website was attacked too.
Who would want to silence Cam the most do you think?
David Farrar blogs about the EPMU donating to the Green party and how members are upset by it.
The Greymouth evening StarÂ reportsÂ that West Coast miners who are EPMU members are furious at the EPMU for donating $15,000 to the Greens, when they want the mining industry in NZ to die out. Over a dozen miners have complained.
You can imagine how galling it would be to have your union donate a portion of your salary to a party that wants to close down the industry you work in, and effectively put you out of a job.
I was sentenced to die by the mob and my daughter to be pack raped by the ferals on theÂ West Coast for daring to use the word feral. They proved my point with their “outrage” and subsequent behaviour.
There was no outrage fromÂ theÂ left about that or about “a rape culture” existing on the West Coast.
Instead they said I deserved death threats and my daughter by virtue of being my daughter deserved what she go too.
No all the fuss was because I called a bunch of ferals driving around the streets and fleeing police in Runanga feral ratbags.
Well the one drunk feral ratbag who actually cause the mayhem and death has been sentenced, but not so you would know it in the mainstream media who published endless articles about the outrage of the ferals for being called feral.
A Kumara man who caused the death of Runanga man Judd Hall, 26, by driving drunk while fleeing from police at high speed was sentenced to five years in prison at the Greymouth District Court this afternoon. Â Read more »
David Cunliffe’s parlous poll ratings for the party have seen the first MPs to buck the whip and cross the floor to vote in favour of theÂ West Coast Windblown Timber Bill.
When your party polls so low the sitting MPs retrench back to their electorates and that is what you are seeing here as Damien O’Connor knows Labour’s opposition to this is death for his own electoral chances.
Labourâ€™s MP for West Coast Tasman Damien Oâ€™Connor and Labourâ€™s MP for Te Tai Tonga Rino Tirikatene will vote for the West Coast Windblown Timber Bill in their capacities as local MPs.
Damien Oâ€™Connor says: “While I am disappointed Conservation Minister Nick Smith will not amend the legislation to guarantee West Coasters get much needed jobs and revenue, I still believe this timber should be utilised.
“The West Coast lost almost 1000 well-paid jobs after the National Government ran Solid Energy into the ground by forcing it to increase debt and pay out dividends at a time when coal prices were unsustainably high. This almost crippled the company and the West Coast community along with it.Â Read more »
The government is going to pass special legislation to allow the harvesting of fallen timber logs as a result of storm damage.
The government is to pass special legislation to allow thousands of logs flattened by Storm Ita to be recovered on the West Coast.
Since mid April, Buller’s Mayor has been campaigning for the go ahead to recover the native logs.
Garry Howard says there is a huge amount of timber to be recovered.
“I’ve got a big grin on my face, it’s real common sense practical stuff and it’s great news for the west coast and New Zealand.”
Mr Howard says they have a mill in Reefton all ready and set up to process the logs.
Yes, see I do have undercover readers in Runanga who aren’t feral ratbags.

Cunners was harping on in the house yesterday about National not caring about Pike families and those hard working NZers that don’t have any money, and decried the influence of donations.Â
But how did he show his commitment to the West Coast recently? Â Read more »
TVNZ are reporting that an accident happened near Wellsford…or did it?
It is hard to tell.
At least one person has been seriously injured in a motorbike crash on SH16 near Wellsford this afternoon.
A man has been airlifted to Nelson Hospital after coming off the bike on the side of the road. A second person is also believed to be injured and is receiving treatment at the scene.Â Read more »
A filthy pedo has been told to rot in hell…a good suggestion considering the Judge said he showed ‘no tangible remorse or acknowledgment of his crimes, and did not accept that he needed treatment’.
I can suggest a couple of treatments…copper coated lead pills work a treat.
The NZ Herald reports.
A family member shouted “I hope you rot in hell” as West Coast paedophile William Ward Oquist was sentenced yesterday to 16 years in prison for sexually abusing girls as young as 5.
Oquist, 60, of Blackball, was found guilty by a Greymouth District Court jury on Monday of 25 counts related to indecent assault and, in some cases, rape of young girls.
The offending took place over a 16-year period from 1996 to 2012, and involved offending on two sets of sisters, including the use of pornographic videos and sex toys.Â Read more »
