I am struggling to see how it is news that a fruit loop millionaire, ostensibly from illegal activities such as hacking and spam, is getting the arse from New Zealand.

The best bit is we still have his $10 million.

People are focusing on his residency application and his “filesharing” activities and conveniently ignoring the thugs he had on staff for “protection”, who their known associates are (they aren’t nice, trust me) and the illegal firearms he had on the premises.

His lawyer blithely explains:

 In explanation for having a gun without a licence, Dotcom said he was concerned for his safety and that of his family.

Most people concerned for their safety don;t illegally import a Mossberg Super Shorty which at 300mm (11.8 inches) is less than half the length legally required for a firearm (762mm or 30 inches) in New Zealand. You can’t buy them here. Not anywhere. The fact that the gun was alos loaded, and with illegal munitions other than for law enforecement shows this man has scant regard for the law.

His $10 million should be forfeit and he should be tossed from our shores. No fuss no bother. See ya later Cyril…or whatever name you are using now.

Cactus Kate contrasts the ninnies in our media with those in Hong Kong where Kim Tim Dim Sim or what ever name he used there, was also a resident.

But she also raises another valid point. If Winston and Labour want some inquiries then the government should go right ahead and I’d suggest that we start by inesitgating thoruoughly the Bill Liu affair and the involvement of David Cunliffe and Shane Jones.

And Labour should be a little more humble about the Kim Dotcom case. I recall Bill Liu, Whaleoil’s expose, Liu’s multiple identities and donations to the Labour Party. So will frontbenchers David Cunliffe and Shane Jones they will never forget Bill Liu. Neither will all Labour MP’s old enough to have been around to facilitate the disaster.

Those who live in glasshouses should not be throwing rocks.

Now if we had an Independent Commission Against Corruption here they would start right there and work on up to Kim Schmitz.

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.
