Judith Collins has re-entered the election campaign. John Key’s little helper is back. Collins now justifies her release of the name and contact details of a public servant to Cameron Slater on the basis that he already had the name and she only released private contact details. So that’s all right then?

Nicky Hager’s Dirty Politics reveals that a commenter on the site, a Wellington person named Sinner, had said re the civil servant that he and his wife and kids should be shot. That’s definitely not all right.

Approximately a month after the comment appeared the police visited Slater with an ultimatum that he remove the comment from the site as it was intimidation and could risk legitimising violence. Slater removed the comment. Sinner kept commenting.

In April this year Collins released a statement headed “Time’s up for cyber bullies.” Collins said:’

“I am pleased to have developed a set of measures that aim to stop the growing incidence of cyber bullying and its devastating effects, particularly for young people.

“Many New Zealanders share my serious concerns about this problem as the reach and impact of bullying has increased considerably in the digital age.

“Tormenters are able to harass their targets 24 hours a day, seven days a week, wherever they go, and the trail of abuse lives on in cyberspace, following victims for years.

Having been revealed as a facilitator of cyber-bullying, Collins should take her own advice. Her time is up.

But she doesn’t realise it. National’s #teamkey campaign has become a train wreck, as John Key looks weaker and grubbier by the day.

    Collins is the stinking dead meat Key is dining on. One green forkful at a time. Nom nom nom Prime Minister.

    National’s #teamkey campaign has become a train wreck, as John Key looks weaker and grubbier by the day.

    But, right on cue, the MSM – or at least TV1 and TV2 – are racing to the rescue.

    TV1 release an unrepresentative poll after the debate (despite the fact it crashed after 10 minutes and thousands were unable to take part) and use it to announce Key the winner when he clearly WAS NOT THE WINNER.

    TV3 play the “I’m sorry for being a man” comment in a lead up to a story about another David Cunliffe.

    TV1 makes a big play of John Key attacking Cunliffe over a supposed policy back-down. No chance given for Cunliffe to respond to the charge of course.

    Business as usual!

    If Cameron “already had the name” why did he need collins to supply the rest of the details? In his post fingering simon pleasants he only used his name and nothing else. He could have written the post without judiths help. The ‘details’ handed over by collins were not useful for his purpose.

    However, if cameron didn’t “already have the name” then the details that collins sent would have been very important to his purpose.

    Occam’s razor.

    National did notice DotCom, the rich foreign investor, first off the new National investor policy, move into the electorate of the PM. And yes, pre-Oraveta Collins was probing Peters on working together. That this stuff shouldn’t be a problem understanding since it would be a worry if they weren’t aware and weren’t playing politics. It’s just insulting Key and Collins thinks they could lie.

    Well that didn’t last long..
    It appears that it takes a final, final, final, final warning for Key’s Higher Standards™ to kick in.
    Judith Collins to resign.
