John Armstrong: Yellow card for political interference

John Armstrong: Yellow card for political interferenceSo now its okay for Labour to conduct witch-hunts against public servants whose partners have links with the National Party? Unsurprisingly, that is not the verdict of the State Services Commission report detailing the shabby sacking… [NZ Politics]

Panty Slut-boy has dropped the government in it again, this time of his culling of the "incorrect" political ideology of a person who did everything by the book when she applied for a senior communications role in the Ministry for the Environment. Realising her potential conflict of interest, she openly declared her relationship with Taylor. The ministry saw no problem. She was given the job.

Make no mistake Pany Slut-boy's grubby fat fingers are all over this, the stench of a cover-up and corruption is emanating strongly now from the corpse that is the Labour government.

This whole episode smacks (excuse the pun) of retribution, revenge and petty politicking. It also has all the hallmarks of a government that has grown arrogant and thinks it is all powerful. 

John Armstrong is right, it appears now its okay for Labour to conduct witch-hunts against public servants whose partners have links with the National Party?

Will we see hordes of civil servants being rounded up for questioning?

Imagine the questions.

"Have you ever or are you now in a relationship with….a member of the National Party?"…. "No"

"Have you ever been a member of a golf club, an accountacy firm or a law firm?"….."Yes but…"…."SILENCE!, We ask the questions"

"Have you ever, even fleetingly met someone from the Exclusive Brethren?"…."uhmm no"

"We have information that you spoke disrespectfully of Dear Leader, is this true? come on now we know the truth, it would go well on you to fess up?"……"No, I nev"…."SILENCE!!! Your words condemn you"

"Have you ever harboured capitalist thoughts?"…."No"

"uh huh, you answered yes to one of those questions, out you go, a securitate officer will escort you from the building…..oh before you go could you wear this blue armband please."

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
