Say It Outside The House David Parker

David Parker is running his mouth in places he shouldn’t with an outrageous name check and then smear in the House against Cactus Kate, Carrick Graham, Mark Hotchin and myself.  This has to be a joke from a man who has integrity so low he ran off with his sick mates missus.

Parker needs to replace the Chisholm Report as his door stop with the best of Chris Knox’s back catalogue then put it on his desk and actually read it.  

He will find that respected Judge Lester Chisholm completely exonerated Mark Hotchin from paying anyone to attack the SFO.  Parker’s dreaming when he makes baseless allegations from imaginary friends he may have at the SFO.

The only people Justice Chisholm found were paid to undermine the SFO were Mr Feeley’s current and former staff and those who work for the New Zealand Herald.  The Herald being involved in two attempts at undermining to the bloggers’ one.

Parker needs to actually read Whaleoil for some factual information.

The non-issue regarding Tony Gapes was covered off there last week.  All this despite it not being a part of the Inquiry.  Mr Hotchin was not even paying for anyone’s services at the time of the post in question that Mr Parker ran off and laid a politically based complaint about.  

And then he needs to read Cactus Kate’s statement where it is quite clear there never was any intention to interfere in the SFO’s investigation of Mark Hotchin.  Cactus even refused to write about the SFO when asked by a third party PR practitioner for the very issues Mr Parker laid his complaint over.

So David Parker, failed how many times wanna be leader of the Labour Party?  A man who now has a career civil servant take his much wanted Finance portfolio – make our day and say this outside the House. We won’t be advising Mr Hotchin not to sue this time on the contrary.  Politicising police complaints while they are apparently still being investigated is severely unbecoming.

Then there is the small matter of Justice Chisholm believing former Ministerial staffer Stefan Herrick’s evidence over that of Fran O’Sullivan’s but we will save that gem for a rainy day.  We might have all been found guilty (with the Herald and former and current SFO staff) of the non-crime of undermining a man who undermined himself but at least the Judge believed our evidence.

Parker’s smear is cowardly and low and based on imaginary hearsay from the voices in his head.

He should step outside the chamber and repeat his allegations like a real man would do.

All he is trying to do is undermine a police investigation and arguably is perverting the course of justice mis-using his parliamentary privilege and applying political pressure to the independent police force.

If he had any integrity…and we know he doesn’t, just ask Chris Knox, he’d withdraw his comments and apologise.

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.
