Investigative journalism at its best.

Nicky Hagar has done it again…stunned the main stream media by proving that investigative journalism can be found if one looks hard enough…right now it can’t be found in the MSM published by our overseas owned daily papers. The Herald has completely been taken over by right wing corporations. These same corporations have taken over our Television screens as well, and the state owned TVNZ has become simply a copy cat in the race to the bottom of the heap, with programmes like ‘Seven Sharp’ bringing all the gutter style tripe in the style of the lowest common denominator talk back radio show idiotic clap-trap.
So the work of Nicki Hager stands out, something worthy of being read. Some thing that, could lead one to, form a balanced opinion, on the behaviour of the government and especially at election time. The Prime Minister naturally will condemn Nicky Hager’s work as the work of a conspiracy theorist… that of cause is a natural reactive response while he searches for a way out of his dilemma and he will no doubt turn to the very people named in the book to help him create a cover story to explain his very real and damaging situation.
People like Paul Henry, a failed broadcaster and badly beaten, National Party Candidate has already set up a straw man to knock down…by using, of all things a speed reader to give his views on the book…naturally and predictably this speed-reader found that the book not worthy of purchase. So we can all sleep tight knowing that the Prime Minister is absolutely wonderful, honest, trustworthy, open handed and God like…exactly the qualities’ that a money trader requires to make 60 to 70 million dollars in five or six years… A career that publicly and rightly, earned Key the nickname of the ‘Smiling assassin’. If you believe Paul Henry’s child like defence of the PM you deserve to be hoodwinked.
Now a good friend dropped a copy of the Nicky Hager book ‘Dirty Politics’ off to me on Thursday at our usual lunch gathering. Its published by craig potton publishing. The book is available from Bruce McKenzie bookshop in the library building in George St in Palmerston North. And I’m continuing to write this blog after a quick read. Its not a long book 166 pages including the subject index. It is stunning to say the least. Nicky Hager never ceases to amaze me with his ability to get to the meat of the issue without wasting words. This book follows that wonderful trend, it is concise and easily understood and if I was the PM or Judith [Crusher] Collins or especially Cameron Slater I’d start looking for other employment. No matter how you dress up their behaviour all three plus other are guilty of serious misconduct and most certainly broke the law as we all understand it.

This from Vicky Buck in Christchurch: Just so you get a flavour of the revolting language and thought process that becomes very clear in Nicky Hager's book out today ---here's Cameron Slater talking about Christchurch - all of us (!!!pp26 - 27)
“The place is fucked.. They should just board it up and close it down "
His mate Peter Smith replied " A real tragedy, but it will fuck Labour for the election "
Slater : yep . Blessings
Peter Smith "What I can't believed is how we have to bail out these useless pricks on the South Island again . I said to someone today National should let them rot, after all they are useless scum Labour voters especially in areas where the earthquake hit - well hopefully more scum Labour voters will piss off to Australia - at least the fucking uninsured get nothing "
Slater replies : those suburbs are hard core Labour - the owners will be Nat voters though and the voters tenants , so the houses are gone and the scum are gone too and so they should get nothing"
Yuk, Yuk and Yuk!!!

Another blogger wrote this about Judith Collins that strange Chinese millionaire loving Minister of ACC and Justice. She is talked about in the book and is Cameron Slater’s best buddy and she is most likely even closer than Key…hence the reason why Key can’t sack her.

 “There has been some very dodgy dealings going on at the very highest levels and Minister Collins has been implicated in events that have yet to be adequately explained,
1.      Who leaked Bronwyn Pullar’s name to the NZ Herald?
2.      Who leaked Ms Pullar’s information to a certain right-wing blogger?
3.      What was right-wing activist, and National Party apparatchik, Simon Lusk’s involvement in this issue?
4.      Did Collins know that the report from ACC contained falsehoods?
5.      If the answer to #4 is in the affirmative, when did she become aware of the falsehoods?
6.      Why has Minister Collins not called for an investigation into the authors of the report?
Instead of acting decisively to get to the bottom of this extraordinary matter, Collins’ reaction has been to… issue defamation lawsuits against Labour MPs Andrew Little and Trevor Mallard!? How does suing MPs, who are asking hard questions, help clear up this murky affair?
It is clear to even the most partisan National supporter that ACC’s management was out of control and engaging in dubious activities. At the very least,  the Police complaint laid by ACC against Bronwyn Pullar appears to constitute an offence of wasting Police time”. Quote ends.

So if you can get a copy of the book and have a read...what ever you do don't simply accept the words coming from paid clones like: Mike Hosking, Mathew Hooten, Clair Robinson, David Farrar, Duncan Garner and Patrick Gower all of whom are psychopathic Nat supporters and members of the Cameron Slater fan club.

The interesting thing about MSM's response and Slater's response, too, is that it accuses Hager of precisely what Slater does in his blog every day. The attack dogs of the nasty right, for example Slater, Farrar, Odgers, Lusk, Williams et al, who work for Key, Collins et al, have created the memes "making shit up" and "explaining is losing" which they use to both attack the left and defend themselves with. This then lets them "make shit up" all the time - just look at Slater's filth blog - and when challenged shrug everything off by accusing others as "making shit up" and explain absolutely nothing. Key does it all the time, too, of course, but the remarkable thing is that we, the public, accept this shite without question. Why as a society are we so stupid? My guess is that in a few days when we begin to see what people think of Hager's allegations is that Key's and National's popularity will go up. If National get a third term it'll be time to leave the country.
