So, all that was needed was a reach around?

This has to be headline of the year.

So what is Laila Harre trying to say…that all that was needed was a hand-job for Kim Dotcom?

Internet Pary leader Laila Harre believes the right’s vilification of Kim Dotcom, and the left’s failure to counter it, cost David Cunliffe the election.

She also said the party should have recognised the effectiveness of the right’s portrayal of Mr Dotcom as electoral poison, and pulled him from the campaign’s frontline.

Last night’s election result delivered to Internet-Mana a lowly 1.26 per cent of the party vote – but it has failed to gain a foothold in Parliament because Mana leader Hone Harawira lost his grip on Te Tai Tokerau.

The result puts the future of the internet Party – and its alliance with Mana – in doubt.  

This morning Ms Harre said that the campaign against Kim Dotcom fatally wounded the overall chances of changing the Government.

“Labour in particular, but also the Greens and NZ First, had the opportunity to accept the reality of Internet-Mana and build a narrative around a diverse, progressive alternative to National, or to effectively capitulate to National’s narrative.

“In the end, we were used by the right to damage the left overall. The only way the left could have avoided that was to provide a counter-narrative, and they failed to do that, and that cost David Cunliffe the Prime Ministership.”

Ms Harre said the party underestimated the public response to National’s narrative.

I wonder Laila what your involvement was in ‘Dirty Politics’?

I guess we will find out soon enough now people are starting to squeal in order to save their own skins.

There was no campaign to vilify Kim Dotcom.

There was however a campaign to tell the truth about Kim Dotcom.

He has threatened many times to sue me and to set his lawyers upon me. The mark of a bully and also the mark of a bullshitter as not a single lawyer has even contacted me.

Kim Dotcom is a scumbag crook and he can measure his time left in this country in months.

I can’t wait until he is extradited, hell I will be so pleased I might even throw a great big “See Ya Fatty party” in his honour.

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.
