A Nice Birthday Present for the Blog – My 10th Charge

As you may now know today is the 5th birthday of the blog and of the character Whaleoil.

Tonight at 10:52pm two Police constables pounded on my bedroom window demanding entry.  They said that they couldn’t find the front door. I told them to try harder.

When they eventually made the front door I was presented with a summons to appear in court on the 16th of June charged with my 10th case of breaching name suppression. Amazingly these two constables are the first people in 6 years to ever mistake our bedroom window, through the garden, behind a gate, with no path or lights as the front door. Shit if they can’t find a front door how are they going to find a dead chinese girl in a suitcase in the boot of her car? Note that they have sat on this summons for over a week, the constable said they had been busy and hadn’t had time.

Unsurprisingly it is the case of the big-wig cop who likes to punch his on in the back of the head for the purposes of parental correction. So naming 32 other crooks, rugby players, teachers, doctors, accountants, pedos, rapists and various other low-life not a peep from the police but name a big-wig cop and look out, they come stumbling through your bedroom window.

The Solicitor-General really must be mad as a meat-axe, along with the idiot lawyer Mike Antunovic who agitated for this. Meanwhile FIGJAM power just sits on his hands.

They can change the law in a heartbeat to stop people using cellphones, they can pass a law under urgency to remove the defense of provocation because two fools unsuccessfully use it, but drag the chain to remove a law protecting the judges, teachers, lawyers, rugby players, cops, doctors, accountants and others in the gray old men establishment brigade.

Tell me again that New Zealand isn’t corrupt.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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