Greenpeace in breach of the law

Oh dear, what do we have here? The Green Taliban are just too clever by half when it comes to online campaigns.

Greenpeace NZ, the High Imans of the Green Taliban,  have set up a fake Simon Bridges website which mimics the original one, apart from the fake oil spill which duly creeps up over your page.

What they don’t realise is:

1. They have illegally used the Parliamentary crest

2. They have illegally used the National Party logo without National’s authorisation

3. They have used a false authorisation statement (printing Bridge’s actual authorisation on their fake page) 

To cap off the blunders above, they’ve arguably sunk back into out and out political campaigning again, which means they’ve fallen afoul of the charitable donations regime which they breached some time ago.

Perhaps its time for Greenpeace to receive a couple of complaints – to the Electoral office and the IRD…and the Charities Commission.

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.
