Respected commentators are now talking seriously about the likelihood that Cameron Slater has dirt on John Key (probably in the form of the record of their communications) that he is using to influence the PM. Why else would Key stay in touch with and defend the toxic blogger?
PM has ‘nothing to fear’ over Slater contact
The Prime Minister says he has nothing to fear if Cameron Slater’s kept a record of their chats. … And he says he doesn’t have any concerns about the phone calls being made public.
The ball seems to be in Slater’s court.
