He’s got nuffink, as the moment of truth becomes the moment of yawn

The Sgt Shultz of NZ politics has got nothing and is starting his backtrack this morning via his bought and paid for PR agents the NZ Herald.

Dotcom told the Herald he would present “absolutely concrete” evidence that Mr Key knew about him earlier than the Prime Minister had claimed.

But Dotcom is unsure how the public will react, especially following the fallout – or lack of fallout – from Dirty Politics.   

“When I read Nicky Hager’s book, I thought, ‘It’s over for John Key’. I didn’t think the New Zealand public would put up with something like that, and I’m really surprised how little impact the book had.

“If he survived that, he could probably survive shooting little kittens in his garden with a shotgun, even if there is picture evidence of that. It’s a mystery. I can’t understand it.

“Will what I present change the election result, or cause serious damage to the Prime Minister? I don’t know. It should.”

Yep, he’s got nuffink.

He has over sold this and now he realises that despite his best efforts at dirty politics it hasn’t worked. No one cares. The polls show that.

Dotcom and his bought and paid for hacks in the media, and the rented pollies and the bribed bloggers are all about to find out that their dirty politics of hacking political opponents and feasting off their private details has backfired.

When I go shopping now it takes a whole lot longer because people want to line up to take selfies with me.

I bet I’ve had more selfies taken than David Cunliffe has in the past week.

All they have achieved with Dirty Politics is to suck the oxygen out of the campaign, in particular Labour’s campaign and divert attention away from the politicians to me, increasing my traffic, and therefore giving me more eyes to influence. They really didn’t think this through, they were so focussed on running me through that they didn’t work out how it would play.

I’m a little tougher than the average person in NZ politics. I’m not going away. And they now know it.

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.
