There’s obviously a few people reading “Dirty Politics” tonight.

One of the biggies, looks to be evidence of Slater’s collusion with Ports of Auckland:

Helen Kelly tweeted:

OMG the whaleoil links with Port of Auckland exposed. The board and snr mgmt cant possibly stay Mr Mayor ?

Russel Norman tweeted:

The stuff about Ports of Auckland is dynamite. If the collusion between PoA and Slater is right, the mgt should be sacked.

And other tweets other tweets point to, what John Campbell said tonight about Cameron Slater, that he’s “not a nice person”.

This was quoted on Campbell Live, and is in a tweet  It is apparently something Slater wrote in a Facebook message after the Feb 11 Christchurch quake:

Tweet from Rachel King:

What I can’t believe … is how we have to bail out those useless pricks in the Sth island again … Those suburbs are hard core Labour … so the houses are gone and the scum are gone too

A tweet from Winston Peters:

For the Prime Minister, it goes to his office in the same way it went to Nixon’s office during the Watergate scandal.

And the final paragraph of the book:

    By the way, just get the link off the time on the tweet. Paste that into the “text” of the post editor, and it will appear as a tweet.

      oh cool, so that’s how you post links to specific tweets too.

      On the snap – Yes. Saw that. But the tweets are revealing to those of us without access to the book.

      Danyl’s Tweets, linked by weka, have some interesting stuff, too – eg the alleged ipredict manipulations.

      Thanks, will try adding another tweet using your instructions.

    Watergate 2.
    Impeachment please.

    Key said three years ago “if this goes negative I will leave”

    Mr Key as an “Honourable minister of the crown please fall on your sword and as Nixon said in those immortal words “I will resign effective at noon today”.

    What did John Key mean when he said to David Cunliffe and Winston Peters in parliament weeks ago before recess when being grilled about Orivida and Kim.com, “You want me to find dirt on you, if you do I have penty in my draw?”

    Yes, before anyone gets all fuckin misty eyed over Nixon, he resigned on the 9th of August, coincidentally John Keys birthday, but only after he negotiated the retention and security of his life long pension and that Ford would pardon him. He was corrupt lying venal scum. Deja vu all over again.

    This one of the lights on in the 9th floor is particularly telling.
