More on Labour's DPS lies

It is very hard to go past Helen Clark’s very own words to prove the lies that Labour has been running about the DPS and John Key. [emphasis mine]

“Personal protection came from the Diplomatic Protection Squad of the New Zealand Police who stayed very close to me for the whole nine years.

This was from her Valedictory speech. It is very hard to reconcile Hodgson’s and Goff’s lies about Helen Clark’s use of the DPS with her own statement. The use of the word “whole” makes it pretty emphatic. So does “very close“.

Here asome more pictures of Clark and the DPS. One at Wellington train station for an interview and one with her at Bastion point amongst her mates including former Labour MP Joe Hawke.

I just love how Labour are prepared to hang out the troops of the DPS in order to score political points. Goff better hope he doesn’t win the election because I don’t think these folk are going to want to put themselves in the way of harm for him.

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.
