Boss Hogg and his vigilante arsehole mates need to pick on someone else

Outgoing Mayor and real Boss Hogg type character Alistair Sowman has unleashed a bunch of vigilante arseholes onto Marlborough.

They are searching for my source, the whistle-blower who busted Sowman’s Rosco P. Coltrane, John Leggett saying one thing in public and another behind closed doors.

Now their little witch hunt has escalated to violence.

A councillor is outraged about the “defamatory” vandalism of her signs, the latest in a spat about a leaked recording which appeared on a right-wing blog.

Campaign signs belonging to Laressa Shenfield were vandalised between Thursday night and Friday morning.

Wallpaper was glued over the original slogan, “Making a Difference”, and was changed to “Making a recording”.

The vandalism was “malicious”, Shenfield said.   

Shenfield had signed a statutory declaration saying she did not make or leak the secret recording of a Marlborough District Council community and finance committee meeting which appeared on blog Whale Oil last week, and was not aware of the recording.

“My integrity is everything to me. I’ve worked very hard to build up a very strong reputation as a councillor and a community member.”

Senior Sergeant Julian Lewis, of Blenheim, said police were investigating the incident.

All members of the Marlborough District Council were asked to sign a declaration.

Councillors Jamie Arbuckle and Jessica Bagge were the only two councillors who did not sign the statement.

Shenfield said the campaign had become toxic, and there was a lot of “hurtful” speculation and finger-pointing on social media.

“The new mayor is going to have to pull all the councillors together and build a unified team, so we can all move forward.”

This is the problem with small towns with small minded little fat conductors running around pointing fingers.

Let me make this very clear…I have never spoken to Laressa Shenfield, never met her nor even emailed her. She is being victimised by the Boss Hogg culture in an attempt to get their Rosco P. Coltrane elected.

I don’t reveal my sources but none of those being accused is my source.

Instead of a witch hunt why don’t these little bullies with a Napolean complex start looking into the real issues…like the dodgy socialist theatre that will never make a cent for the council.

As for Rosco, he really should not drink so much on sister city trips. Those videos are rather embarrassing…especially when you are calling you hosts “dirty, dirty nips”.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the media in Marlborough actually did their jobs instead of giving the mayor a reach around?

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.
