Issue of security?

People have accused me and other of a vast conspiracy and honey trap situation in the downfall of Len Brown. Let’s examine that shall we.

Not only does this saga show an amazing lack of cultural awareness (“manchu girl” for someone from Hong Kong) it shows a weakness of character which would concern any government agency assessing security clearances.

The Chinese Ministry of State Security will be rubbing their hands in glee that a senior politician here has yellow fever and an obvious weak point. I might add that there is plenty of sources coming forward about a trip to China earlier in the year that probably provided Chinese security forces with plenty of compromising evidence against Mayor Len Brown.

I find it weird that bureaucrats can lose jobs over security concerns but their bosses are allowed private lives. 

How about that general in the US fired for gambling issues or those people who can’t get security clearances because of personal debt?

Or in the past you couldn’t get a security clearance if you were gay because this might be exploited.

So we accept that the personal life of government employees effects their security status but politicians are allowed to be above it all?

Some quick reading on honey traps.

There is no way that this was a honey trap, but I believe Len Brown has shown a weakness of character that is seriously concerning.

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.
