LEAKED: Andrew Riches’ TXT conversation with Aaron Gilmore

 Newstalk ZB published this just moments ago

(For those needing a cast list, Andrew Riches is the Christchurch lawyer that was present at the Hanmer restaurant, and I guess I better explain who Aaron Gilmore is, because he keeps asking people “Do you know who I am?”.  He’s the Clown of Christchurch East)

Andrew Riches: What’s all this group stuff? You directly threatened to have the guy Fired and said the prime ministers office would be contacting his employer the next day. The girls were gone by that stage and I was just standing there. Stop trying to imply we did something.

clownAaron Gilmore: FFS the batman claims the group were racist and that I was escorted from the hotel.

AR: What’s the batman?

AG: Barman

AR: What? That’s ridiculous, we were lovely to him. I also never recall you calling anyone a dickhead

AR: I didn’t write that note because I thought we were boisterous, I wrote it because you told the guy he was being fired, said the pm would be involved and I didn’t want the poor guy to worry about his job

AG: I know. They are trying to make it seem bigger than that. Its bullshit. ive taken the blame and apologised. Just say nothing.

AR: You didn’t take the blame. You blamed the rest of your group when the girls weren’t even in the same room

AG: I did the fucktard said I was not the only one drink and i was carried out of the bar. I said that I was rude but he claims others were too. It’s not worth the argument.

AR: Well the herald just called ad informed me they have heard you mentioned the prime ministers office ad threatened to get them involved

The “leak” can only have come from one source of course.  I think it is fair to say that Andrew Riches and Aaron the Clown aren’t friends anymore.  There has been continued speculation that Andrew threw the Clown under the bus, and this is his latest attempt to distance himself from Aaron Gilmore’s appalling behavior.

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.
