Whale OIl---How much 'influence does the guy hiding in Israel actually have--or is it have---now!
It is becoming increasingly clear that Cameron Slater of ‘Whale blob’ fame, has had his fingers in lots of holes over the years, either trying to influence policy, politicians and wannabe ‘aspirants’ to Parliament. Nicky Hager’s book, ‘Dirty Politics,’ may just be the tip of the iceberg as to his actual dealings and despite how Nicky came to his conclusions, there is little doubt that a great deal of ‘smoke’ is more than a sign of nasty manoeuvrings on Slater’s part and possibly near law-breaking activities. That Slater cries foul when he too wasn’t too worried about how he gathered his ‘information on those he wanted to ‘hit,’ makes one tend to have little sympathy for him and his present exiled state ‘under the dome’ in Israel. There will be much more dirt from all directions over the next few weeks, adding to an already murky look to the election campaign and it is unfortunate that policy sometimes gets an ‘addition’ to the main news each night. Sadly, the huge gains in technology have contributed to this; such gains quickly become the tool to those who would besmirch the reputations of others, in order to achieve their own goals. Slater of course is not alone in that attribute, nor are such moves confined to National Party supporters and their friends. Will Slater be home anytime soon? Expect a circus at the airport; that is if anyone knows of his return. What else can he expect after the bomb that he loaded and was then ignited by Hager? One cannot delve in such alleged actions without the proverbial hitting the fan at some stage. It just so happens that Slater has been the author of his own destiny, one that has been incubating for quite some time. Maybe New Zealanders have had enough of this filth in politics and other sectors of society, but will that translate into political change? Roll on September 20th, so we can give our collective verdict. www.authorneilcoleman.com
