Gee I wonder how she got the exclusive

I see Mrs Colin Carruthers Deborah Coddington has an exclusive with broken arsed ex-judge Bill Wilson.

I’m not really sure where she thinks the ethical lines should be drawn but clearly she thinks they don’t apply to her.

Clearly the intent of the article is to destabilise further the parlous state the judiciary has found itself in. Though not without some basis in fact. The Chief Justice should really be also considering her future.

We are also seeing the extreme folly of Helen Clark’s and Margaret Wilson’s grand attempt to subvert new Zealand to a republic by stealth. By removing the Privy Council, without mandate, I might add, and supplanting it with her creation, the Supreme Court, Helen Clark exposed this country the the extremely shallow legal talent pool that a small population entails.

The machinations and inter-relationships of the extremely small legal fraternity are all exposed by the Bill Wilson affair. This case clearly shows that New Zealand’s legal talent pool is as shallow as a car-park puddle.

I wonder too if the Herald realises it may have broken name suppression as well in Deborah Coddington’s article. There is certainly a rather large “piece of a puzzle” smack in the middle of her article.

Either way, as usual, Deborah Coddington’s “exclusive” fails to deliver anything other than the grand delusions iof her husband’s client. No doubt she also got paid by the Herald for the article thus adding to the rather large pot of gold that Bill Wilson has delivered to the Carruthers/Coddington household. The government coughed more than $475,000 for Colin Carruthers representation of Bill Wilson and now Deborah Coddington has no doubt also had her palms crossed with silver. The cheek of all three to even speak about all this is beyond the pale. You could almost call them all troughers.

Think I’m being too tough on Coddington, well I remember that she called me a sneaky snitch once at the same time of accusing me of hiding behind a pseudonym.

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.
