Slimegate: Ten Questions

Why are we not meant to believe what Bevan Chuang has said about what Palino knew, but are meant to believe everything in her affidavit published on Whale Oil?

Stephen Cook claims he did his story for free. The unemployed freelance journalist also claims to have paid for Bevan Chuang’s motel room. Times used to be tough for those on the benefit, but these people are living the dream! Could free-spending freelance journos be the target for Paula Bennett’s next welfare crackdown?

John Palino has said that claims he, a political novice, could be involved in a grand right wing conspiracy do not stand up to even the remotest test of common sense. Is John Palino right? Can anyone be in any doubt that he is a political novice?

Cameron Slater has described Auckland politics as “a dirty, disgusting, despicable game and it involves dirty, disgusting, despicable people at all levels”. Does this prove that if you throw enough shit around you will get everyone around you dirty?

Or does it simply mean that Cameron Slater has allies and informants at every level?

Is it possible that Aaron Gilmore and Luigi Wewege are the same person?

Did Cameron Slater’s appearance on TV3’s The Nation this weekend also double as an audition for the TV show Would I Lie to You?

Is web traffic really more important than self-respect?

I don’t have time to read the twenty or thirty posts Cameron Slater churns out each day. Is there a site somewhere that neatly aggregates all of his lies?

Remember when this scandal was only about Len Brown?

  1. There are Q&As on Kiwiblog and Whaleoil, but the other question you could ask yourself is how you would feel if each of the main characters were from the opposite sides of the political spectrum? If you hold yourself to high standards, supporting Len Brown is a mistake, and ultimately does more damage to the “left” side of politics.

    • you could ask yourself is how you would feel if each of the main characters were from the opposite sides of the political spectrum?

      Equally disgusted.

      If Brown breaks no rules and doesn’t abuse his position, then I don’t really care who he sleeps with. I don’t see that as a left/right thing. I don’t care to know about any of our politicians’ sex lives.

      • Kokila raises a valid point. If Len Brown was mayor of that metropolis of hate, Hamilton, would you be so dismissive. What if Len Brown was the Supreme Leader of Iran or even a badger? What if, even, Len Brown was leader of an intergalactic invasion fleet on its way to enslave earth? I think you would be humming from a different prayer book if that was the case.

        If you refuse to endorse building and leading an earth defence fleet to deal with Brown and his alien allies, then you are no better than Cameron Slater. Think of the damage a Len Brown led invasion fleet could do to the left!

  2. And there’s the rub. It can be relatively clear as to whether or not rules a broken. I’d assume the Council initiated enquiry will sort that, but did he hold himself to high standards? To me, I’d say not, and I’d rather he go. It beggars belief that he has to learn not to use a ratepayer funded credit card because his poor use of it was exposed, and now, the 2nd note to self is not to conduct an affair on council time and property.
