Not even Richard Nixon would write something as incriminating or stupid as that.
While I don't know if the e-mail is a fake or not it is unwise to assume that the people purported to write the e-mail are intelligent or act intelligently. There is ample evidence that people can be ridiculously stupid, even people such as senior executives.
the current situation with Slater’s court action is not sufficient to explain the silence
That was my impression as well.
I'm trying really hard to hope that someone in the media who has those documents has a moral compass.
So has there been any sign from the journalists that Rawshark gave his last files to? There really does seem to be a whole story about Jason Ede that is gone completely missing.
And now we have Key fat shaming Dotcom http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/10498374/Its-a-sound-and-light-show-Key
Seriously is this the PM we paid for? I’d almost accept that his political policies are abhorrent to me if he behaved with a modicum of decency.
I take it back.
I was completely wrong.
Tussock your post was the perfect reason to continue arguing with a religious zealot.
Oh and a nomination for post of the year!
We do have a post of the year don't we?
Could we not agree to disagree and move on to more interesting subjects?
I find it amazing that such a boring tedious and recycled discussion can go on so long. there is simply nothing more pointless than arguing with a religious zealot, it makes nobody happy and resolves nothing.
Sadly it looks like rawshark gave his stash to narcs
Accentuate the positive
For clarity - who exactly is Mr in-between?
In anticipation of emulating Stevenson I have already begun to learn his favourite instrument, the flageolet (which is a member of the fipple flute family, in case you were wondering).
your plan is to torture the guards with the instrument until they plug their ears with cheese and can no longer hear your escape?
I don’t give a flying fuck why Dirty Politics was written or when it was released
Nor do I. I just think it's silly to say that the intention was not to try and stop the train wreck that is about to ensue.
That is may have an ongoing effect might also be nice but given that our MSM appear to have uniformly turned their back on the embarrassing incident (wherein they got their "news" from a scumbag work for one of the major political parties) I suspect that in three years time we will still be mysteriously getting lots of stories in the news that discredit those opposed to National.
We will still be asking Cunliffe why he is 1 billion out in his number while cheerfully ignoring Key being 1.4 billion out - sigh.
