What I want to know is will the taxpayers get their hush money back?

It appears that Bill English and John Key facilitated a hush money payout to Glenys Dickson.

It also appears that she went to the Colin Craig School of Confidentiality and has run her gob off to the media such is her bitterness at failing repeatedly to rinse Todd Barclay using democratic processes.

So, the question is this…    

If she was paid hush money, why has she blabbed?

And, If she has blabbed, surely that voids the agreement and she should pay the money back?

This is real amateur hour stuff from Bill English. His nasty little plot against Todd Barclay is a busted flush, he’s changed his story, lied to media, obfuscated and now the woman who he helped arrange a hush payment to has blabbed.

I wonder which fool adviser in Key’s or Bill’s office came up with the cunning plan to buy some silence? It never works, and you get found out, even though you paid. Real amateur hour stuff.


Bottom line though, is if there was a confidentiality payment, above the mark by all accounts, when do we get our dosh back as it clear that the agreement was broken?

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.
