Not guilty, and indeed still Honourable (and some impertinent questions)

Here’s the report, for those of you who would like to have a read.



Inquiry report 24 November 2014

Allegations they were.  And that’s all they were.  The Hon Judith Collins, MP, is nothing more than the focal point of a smear campaign initiated by Kim Dotcom, and propagated by the willing soldiers in and around the Internet, Mana, Labour and Green parties.  These willing soldiers have clearly included Nicky Hager, various overt agitators in social media, and others still the be named as police investigations continue.

She stood down to clear her name.  She did.  She has.

It is time the focus goes on the people who have been slinging the mud, ironically accusing Collins of slinging mud.   And let us not forget certain media outlets that failed the balance test in this and many other related stories as they assumed the position of opposition, rather than reporters.  (No matter what we do, or what we say the polls don’t change” — Gallery journalist Katie Bradford)

Now that that is out of the way, the question is, who DID undermine SFO boss Adam Feeley?

This, from the report:


Ah, so the SFO was leaking to the media.  Let me clarify  the SERIOUS FRAUD OFFICE (FRAUD, SERIOUS) was leaking to the media to undermine their own management.

Please note that these leaks went to media, namely, the NZ Herald and Whaleoil.



Question:  Why is it that Whaleoil is part of “Dirty Politics”, but the “NZ Herald” is neither held to account as part of Dirty Politics, or, indeed, Dirty Media?

The double standard that media has to either be in television broadcasting, radio broadcasting or a printed newspaper continues to be spun for all it is worth.

In fact, if you read the report, you’ll see that it names specific people within the Herald that don’t come out smelling of roses, yet the politicians and media at large chooses only to focus on Whaleoil.

We all know why.   They don’t actually fear the NZ Herald.
