Someone isn’t telling the truth Russel…here’s a clue, it’s you

The Green party have called in their Stasi to audit the computers of their MPs.

Think about that for a minute, because this was the party that was crying over the metadata and swipe card details of a journalist being inspected by parliament and now they have called in the Stasi to inspect the computers and emails and phones of sitting Members of Parliament.

The Green Party ordered an audit of MPs’ emails to check for any communication with blogger Cameron Slater.

The review, just before the election, unearthed just a handful of messages from senior list MP Kevin Hague, about two posts he wrote for Slater’s WhaleOil blog advocating for proposed marriage-equality laws.

Party apparatchiks wanted to ensure they weren’t “blindsided” as they attacked National over revelations in Nicky Hager’s Dirty Politics book.

MPs’ executive assistants checked correspondence, a spokesman said. “Since Dirty Politics, we have had nothing to do with [Slater],” he added.

Hague confirmed the emails, and said Slater had contacted him “a couple of times” by email and text on other matters. He acknowledged the messages, but did not engage, he said.

Since Dirty Politics was released, Slater has published dark threats to unveil correspondence with political players. There is mounting speculation he is holding Prime Minister John Key to ransom in some way. Key was forced to admit last week he still sent Slater text messages.

Dark threats eh?

They weren’t threats Russel they were promises.

If you are going to tell lies then I am going to bust your chops for lying…now that you have had the warning it is time for the smacking. 

You have stated that you have un-earthed just a handful of messages from Kevin Hague…are you sure you’ve got them all?

The short answer without teasing too much is you haven’t. I’m not one to burn sources, but if Russel Norman is going to lie and Jan Logie is going to attack me as well in parliament then let’s have some sunlight.

Jan Logie emailed me after I went out to see Tania Wysocki and get the real story. She sent me this email.


I replied, as is my custom.


And her response to the offer of guest posts.Logie3

Then I sent her some details about the disgusting Foreign Charter Vessels issue that was being talked about in parliament. I supported their campaign on this issue.

Looks like The Green party is using the same auditors as South Canterbury Finance used. Next time the Greens need to pay Rawshark to do their audit to ensure they actually look at everything.

That is just one MP…she attacked me in parliament a few months ago and her leader has lied to the media about contact with me. UTB, NFWAB.

Now if the Greens could just move on from this non-issue….because if they keep telling lies about me then I’ll keep telling the truth about them.

I wonder why these emails were never in Nicky Hager’s book “Dirty Politics“…was it because I was helping the Greens with their own dirty politics? Or just an inconvenient truth.

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.
