The Many Lies of Helen Kelly

Aspiring Rongotai MP and current head of the CTU Helen Kelly is a known and proven liar. She lies perhaps because she believes all the media are on her side, and will parrot her story against the evil employers because the media are all pinkos at heart.

Fortunately on occasion reporters actually do their job, and ask the truth about things. In Helen Kelly’s latest lie she rants on about the evil Business New Zealand suppressing the rights of some bunch of unfortunates on stuff. As usual with Helen Kelly she covers up lies in a swathe of words, not understanding TL:DR

While her lying rant attaching Aung San Suu Kyi to the rights of unionists to lie through their teeth could have gone unchallenged Stuff got Business New Zealand to respond.

Phil O’Reilly, representing the truth said this:

Helen Kelly is misrepresenting events at the International Labour Conference.

The issue was about international strikes.

At the conference an advisory committee tabled a report promoting the use of international labour strikes in sympathy with social or economic issues anywhere in the world.

Employers would strongly disagree with this, believing rules around strike action should be made at the national level, not by international committees – a view no doubt shared by most New Zealanders.

However, many in the union movement desire the right to international strike action.

For those who don’t understand diplomat speak – misrepresenting means lying.

Helen, if you really are going to be the MP for Rongotai you really must learn not to lie. Omitting major details is just covering up the truth and you will get called out just like you and Simon Oosterman have been called out repeatedly.

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.
