I said that when things got too hot Cameron Slater would call on Daddy to save him. Sure enough.
Slater has been exploiting the suffering of sexual abuse victims to get his fifteen minutes of fame. It’s sad stuff from a sad individual. And it’s illegal.
Slater knew that his father, former National Party President and head of C&R John Slater, would always be there to pay the fines. But it’s getting more serious than that. There still could be imprisonable charges coming.
Now Daddy’s decided to have a swipe at the cops instead.
Boils down to ‘how dare you investigate my son, leave him alone’. The excuse is rubbish about the cost. Don’t see Tories complaining about the cost of prosecuting taggers, of course. Nah, different standards when it’s a rich guy who’s broken the law.
Where do these Tories get off? Thinking they can throw around their power. Telling the cops who to charge. Whose law breaking to turn a blind eye to.
The Nats think the rules don’t apply to them (cf. Heatley, English, Bennett, Roger McClay…). The law’s for keeping the poor in line, not the rich, they reckon.
Come out from behind Daddy’s legs, Slater. You’re 41. Learn to stand up for your actions. Take what’s coming to you like a man.
