Labour snitch implicated but not named in MFaT leak

There are quite a lot of papers to read through of the now published report by Paula Rebstock into the MFaT leaks.

Phil Goff drip fed his leaks to parliament and to the media and the report doesn’t exactly cover him in any glory with reports of multiple, unauthorised phone calls to staffers, some after hours.

The key part though is the links to Labour for the leaks.

Report Unauthorised Disclosure Mfat Papers

Labour wanted the sources of leaks in relation to peter Dunne hunted down and named, but in this instance they fought very hard, both with the State Services Commission and in court to prevent the naming of their staffer.

With all the phone calls after hours, the links to the reception area and the fact that person was a former staffer of the Labour Research Unit, there is little doubt that the leaker was a Labour plant working closely with Phil Goff.

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.
