Dirty anti-dirty politics

‘Dirty Politics’ failed to swing the electorate against the Government last election, but it seems far from over.

‘Dirty Politics’ was raised as a major defence in the Williams versus Craig defamation trial, with Craig citing it as justification for his extraordinary responses to successful attempts to trash both his political career and the Conservative Party.

And despite bidding farewell in 2014, Whaledump reappeared briefly on Twitter recently.

Then this comment came up (posted elsewhere) yesterday:

How many wake up calls does the New Zealand public need?

Dirty politics.

Extensive slavery and fish dumping – environmental destruction – and screeds of evidence that the goverment has known about it for years and covered it up. And now customs covering up more abuses of the poorest, most exploited people in the world!

The Lying away the outrageous increase in child poverty and homelessness.

New Zealand’s key role, as yet unreported, in Panama. Of course, what many people don’t know is that that company has strong connection to Mi6 and the CIA: for it was the NZ goverment who initiated that financial arrangement, during the Iran crisis, given how much dirty operational money needed to be obscured… that’s right, folks… just as all the Iranian intel passed through the New Zealand embassy in Manila during that time, it was New Zealanders, and Mi6 employees stationed in NZ who facilitated the cashflow! Wonder why NZ has some strange surveillance concern with Iran? It’s historical.

Conspiracy theory no doubt…. As likely as members of the Hearst dynasty tied up with the Weather Underground moving to Christchurch and changed their surname to Tree.

What’s the point of the media, and you so-called leftists in the face of what you really face…. You can’t even see the tip of the iceberg! Sorry, just a little disappointed. Please, travel some more. Go live in a pagoda for a month in an empoverished province of a Western fucked nation.

Those who can, do what they can. We will live and die unknown and you will never know any better. Well, better to try than to do nothing at all. But you know who this is, don’t you SIS and friends. Thanks for the visit last year by the way. I didn’t say anything and showed her a good time. Trust she enjoyed herself.

In the next few months more revelations will come out – if there are people ready to listen. But to what end? To what effect? So depressing. Banging the old head against the wall…

It took you (opposition, media) two bloody years to twig to the extent of migrant labour abuses despite individuals from fairfax and other media organizations having the truth rubbed in your noses, repeatedly, by friends of ours. But there’s been some good work, especially by one particular journo now working for radio NZ. You know who I mean. Shoutout, sister! Still, you – the media – haven’t reported on the fact that anti-slavery activists have been harassed into the dirt by the intelligence services.

Yes, correct: go talk to all those who have housed, fed, and advocated for abused migrant workers. The filmmakers who tried to bring the issue to attention also. Followed, harassed, and intimidated by our own security services as well as by private contractors. No doubt they were affecting New Zealand’s economic well being…

Talk to the director of Slaves of the Ocean about it. Talk to the activists who protected the fishermen who fled the Oyang. It’s an incredible story of human rights defenders – patriots of the highest order – being harrasssed and crushed by the state and by private contractors working closely together. They were even spying the hell out of the Anglican Church, for God’s sake. Facist, anti – human rights surveillance. Yes, in New Zealand.

Oh, to change the subject just slightly (cough – prettty obvious guys), be quite skeptical about who exactly was behind the leak of Slater’s emails. Curious, isn’t it, who was mentioned in those dumps (not always by the same people by the way).

[Redacted] Think about it… that doesn’t apply to all releases….


Ask yourself how many leaks of this magnitude have not resulted in an arrest. Yes. Ponder that. In the history of large scale hacks, how often is it that the purpetrator (lol) has not been caught?

The true situation is much, much more complex that people realize. The mix is extraordinary.

Reasons for why the PM didn’t want to pursue “Rawshark”?


Another breather who unfortunately left a trail of sorts is an activist authorities don’t dare arrest because the dirt he has is even worse, much, much worse and damaging. GCSB and industry related.

Another is a woman with such just cause very few in the NZ public, no matter how mean they may have become, would abide her persecution I bet – and they bet too clearly.

Oh and there’s others… It’s an open joke among hackers how open the systems of Slater, that slithery insect, were. He should be grateful to the hackers he so loathes. They have standards or morals to such a degree that they have agreed to draw a line[Redacted] That’s right, Cam: some of them have had that used against them by the security services you praise so much. I’m afraid they operate to a much higher ethical standard.

Will anyone ever get to the bottom of it? Well the truth is they mostly have and for the above and other reasons it won’t come out. [Redacted]

If this comment gets through, know, players listed above, that we know all your weaknesses. We have documents for East Germany and dirt for Africa. But you know that don’t you? You rely on the fact that the public doesn’t care: that it doesn’t care about the minutiae of your business, of the shady deals you do, [Redacted]…. could run to 500 pages but due to go clubbing just shortly…

We are here, we are not going away, and any move (or more moves) you make against us will result in devastating leaks. But you know that.

We have communicated what we expect. And recently you have been coming to the party at least in terms of prosecuting migrant labour abuses. Smiley face and big tick!

But we are not going away. We know you purposefully did not consult with Maori over the Kermadecs. It’s not the first time you have tried to use Tangata Whenua (sorry, the Maori Party who are hardly representational) to shoot down labour and environmental issues at sea. Remember when the Maori Party changed their mind at the last moment in respect of the foreign charter legislation? They looked freaked out, didn’t they…. I wonder why. Don’t forget who you are dealing with. You cannot arrest us, we know too much – and you know that very well now don’t you?

We know you know who we are. Hell, we don’t even bother to hide ourselves to mr [Redacted]. Top bloke.

Until soon

Sounds dirty as, all round.

I think this needs airing but I have redacted claims and accusations against people that aren’t backed by evidence – it’s difficult to know what is dirty, and what might be dirty lies.

Time will tell whether ‘in the next few months more revelations will come out’, and whether anyone much will listen.

  1. The bullshit is strong in this one.

      Bullseye, Arty. They are just out for a cheap scalp. And like scalping this bs has fallen out of public favour.

  2. I’m sure any responsible survey would show that Kiwis are right behind making the Kermadecs a sanctuary. This is a vote loser not a winner.

    Is this RT???

  3. Whomever, they need treatment for paranoid delusions. Although the consistent inconsistencies in the blog (rant) may indicate a light-hearted attempt at ridiculing the whole Dirty Politics saga. For me, it was a waste of space, and I really am sorry to have commented on it.

    Reads like the ramblings of a nut job. This was originally posted on TS right?

    Anyone who thinks that dirty politics are a modern phenomenon should read Trollope’s ‘Palliser’ novels, especially the last four.

        The people like the unlovely Quintus Slide had to rely on the printed word, of course, in newspapers. He must have been an ancestor of Mr Slater.

        I can’t recommend these books highly enough-I don’t know how many times I have read them.

          Doesn’t it spoil it for you knowing how it ends. 😳

          • Kitty Catkin

             /  7th October 2016

            Not at all. These are great books with complex plots and situations, and I can happily reread them any number of times. One doesn’t read them like a whodunnit ( although I can reread those, too) as they don’t have that sort of plot. The brilliant writing is a treat every time. Superb. Phineas Redux (of which I have a 1st ed, oh joy) and The Prime Minister are among Eng Lit’s great books.

            I wonder what would happen if someone wrote a newspaper article as someone did in the c.18 implying (if it can even be called that) that the political canvassers who were women were nymphomaniac whores with VD who were not too fussy about what they did to get votes for their preferred candidates…the area named was the then equivalent of K Rd or King’s Cross. I’d say that any paper foolish enough to print it now would wish that they hadn’t. If it was a broadsheet, that would make it hard to trace the author; I can’t be bothered looking for it just now, as it’s in a very long book.

            A cartoon of the era showed someone who was unmistakably the Duchess of Devonshire riding backwards on a fox (a very unsubtle reference to Charles Fox) holding its erect tail with a delighted smile. They are heading towards Cuckold Hall, whose sign is decorated with horns. I suspect that it would be a brave editor who’d print the equivalent of THAT now,

              Extract from something written by (Lord) ‘Wray’s men’ (he was standing against Charles Fox in 1784)

              The italics are in the original.

              Considering the frequent visits they pay to Covent Garden*, it is no wonder that the Ladies catch the contagion**of party spirit and are so warm ** in the support of their favourite member.

              *this was one of the areas frequented by prostitutes

              ** and *** -work it out for yourselves.

              It is very hard to imagine John Key or Andrew Little sanctioning anything like this and expecting to be elected.

    As an aside I haven’t seen Ben post here recently?

    • Gezza

       /  7th October 2016

      He keeps an eye on things I think. I think he might be waiting for iceberg to post some evidence that Ben said something here that Ben said he didn’t the other day, It was a ‘put up or shut up’ situation & ice has gone very quiet since then. 😕

      • That’s right Gezza. Did you miss me PDB? 🙂

        That ramble reads quite unhinged. Mostly in a get-off-the-crack way but also that the writer believes they are holding the government to ransom for their requests. A few veiled threats. Quite probably grounds for a visit from the Police? Trying to change the government through hacking is quite incomprehensible and the equivalent of direct kinetic attacks IRL.

        I wonder why LPrent left it up?

        • Alan Wilkinson

           /  7th October 2016

          Yes, I wondered that until I saw the compliment it paid LP.

    Their motives vary but are never altruistic. In my book snowden, assange, our own resident wannabe et al are the lowest form of life

  8. The real “Rawshark” TRK should acknowledge his authorship of the rant. It shows just how handicapped our counter-terrorist resources are by direct political interference so that it doesn’t affect treaty claims. We will pay for the consequences.
