New information on Glenda Hughes?

On 20 June  after Melanie Read’s Newsroom interview Andrew Geddis blogged about possible obstruction of justice by a National Party Board member. That was based on new information in the Barclay case, and may be why the Police have since re-interviewed Glenys Dickson.

We now know that the National Party Board member in question was Glenda Hughes. She refused to answer any questions at the National Party Conference. National’s chairman Peter Goodfellow confirmed bis confidence in her.

Glenys Dickson has now put this information on the record about what happened to her while the police investigation into her complaint was underway, and well before it was wound up.

After Dickson complained to the police, Hughes urged her to withdraw the complaint.

“I was told if I didn’t withdraw the police complaint I could potentially take down the National Party, and there was an inference that if National didn’t have Barclay in Parliament they were one short to pass legislation.”

Dickson said she was also told that it would be difficult for her and her family if she had to appear in a high-profile court case.

“The board member explained to me if I withdrew my complaint I would be considered a hostile witness and the police would have not had a case.”

In his Pundit post Andrew Geddis had this to say about that statement.

An attempt to obstruct the course of justice may also occur where the defendant discourages a potential complainant from pursuing allegations of wrong-doing.”

So it would seem that Glenda Hughes’ attempt to cover-up any police case against Todd Barclay may also be a crime. It also appears to indicate the National Party board thought he had a case to answer.

The National Party’s caucus leadership have thrown Barclay under the bus with the penalty he would have incurred if the allegations against him had been proven. National Party board members should not get off lightly either.

    They’re a charming lot, aren’t they!

    As the saying goes … a fish rots from the head down. This lot of Natz have more than proven the truth of this statement!

    And I ask again … where is murky rogue Key in all of this?

    • tc 2.1

      Sir John of shonky and his fellow realm members and associates will close ranks to contain this to the expendables.

      Blinglish is a busted flush, the jobs done now once RMA is finally gutted and those last state houses get flogged.

      IMO this isn’t an election they want to win as their 4th term will reek of the damage they’ve inflicted over the last 3 and they know it with some already announcing their departure.

      Theres many parallels to Lange and Clark here as the next govt has a ton of economic and social repair to undertake.

    Hughes is a member of the Parole Board. It would be hard to have confidence in any decision she is involved with.

    • North 3.1

      ……..and formerly a reasonably high-profile police officer in Auckland (unless I mistake the dead-ringer face). Why oh why would you have a hard-out cop on the Parole Board ? Can understand such a type being slotted into the National Party board but the Parole Board ???

      • dukeofurl 3.1.1

        Linkedin gives some previous background, her main gig is her own marketing/media stategy company.

        Producer TV 3 A Current Affair
        Acting Chief of Staff Hon Bill English
        Eighteen years experience in all facets of New Zealand Policing

        Was the PR person behind Veitch when he was in hot water. Was able to use her media contacts to “give his side of the story”…urghhh

  4. mary_a 4

    Hell, that face would haunt the bejesus out of a haunted house! Any wonder Glenys Dickson backed away from her complaint! That look, that stare …. nightmare stuff!

    There are some things are worth dying in a ditch for, but Todd Barclay Seriously! There must have been about him that the Nats were willing to risk everything for, or have they just got complacent?

    • ianmac 5.1

      It is possible that this sort of thing goes on quite often, but is usually cloaked in mafia style darkness.

      • Draco T Bastard 5.1.1

        That’s what I’m thinking.

        That this type of stuff goes on all the time and we just don’t hear about it.

    • Cinny 5.2

      The outgoing government needed Barclays vote to pass any legislation if they did not have coalition partnership support.

      Why was Barclay so paranoid, talk of him installing cctv, I find that bizarre.

      He tapes the loyal, hardworking secretary because he thinks she is gossiping about him… doesn’t make a complaint to Parliamentary Services, even though he said he did. But rather he avoided making a complaint and decided to muddy her name and ruin her credibility instead.

      Maybe he avoided a police interview because they would have asked… what was on the tape?

      What was he so scared of her talking about?

      What had she seen or heard which caused him such massive paranoia, resulting in an apparent $100k payout which was okied by the PM who quit, aka Key.

      What was on the tapes?

      I really feel for Glenis and her family, from what I’ve heard and know she is a good lady, must have been an epic woman for the outgoing PM to have her onboard for 17 years.

      Glenda Hughes appears to be a piece of work, I’d say she’d have no problem standing over people to get what’s best for ‘the company’, Glenis would have been terrified.

      Now this is all coming out in the open, any who try to threaten or harm Glenis or her family will shine the spotlight even brighter. At least the publicity keeps some brave people a bit safer than they were before.

      • gsays 5.2.1

        Maybe it is generational, I come across a lot of twenty and thirty somethings who have extreme entitlititis.

        Regardless of their behaviour it is always someone else’s fault.

        Profound lack of insight and, as someone here mentioned last week, good at othering.

        I get that there are these types in every generation.
        What a contrast Bill english and Todd debarclay.

        • greywarshark 5.2.1.1

          I think entitlitis is a result of decades of neoliberalism. Making it, being all you can be, following your dream (and bugger everyone else) has been the theme absorbed through the pores.

          Failure and being caught out wouldn’t prompt reflection, just a challenge to do better in future. Use othering, the world is divided in to haves and have-nots, and make sure that YOU are in the haves. The others haven’t tried hard enough, haven’t got what it takes.

          There’s no real feeling for each other, for humanity, just passing sentimentality and big hugs and cries of warmth to similar types, and of course PC which makes one appear people-friendly and sensitive. Surface stuff.

          • Thinkerr 5.2.1.1.1

            Totally agree with your sentiment, Gws.

            Actually, it goes without saying, because even the most diehard supporters call it a ‘transactional model’, implying at its core everyone does things for their own benefit.

            The change in the public sector has been the most visible example. Not thinking about the debate about whether it used to be overstaffed. Thats different.

            But, pre1984, the public sector attracted the kind of person who tended to be community minded. Not your average ‘mover & shaker’ but someone who got their jollies from seeing a healthy, housed community, with well-educated youth and dignified older people, and who was prepared to take a bit less in the pay packet for the privilege of helping make that happen.

            In return, although I wasnt part of that world, if your child won a school prize, or you needed to leave an hour early on Friday to beat the traffic to the Wairarapa for the weekend, a blind eye was turned.

            Post-1984, the model doesn’t allow for that kind of world. Because the model assumes everyone will only labour for material reward, public servants were assumed to be less-capable than their private sector counterparts. Why on earth else would anyone take a lower wage than their peers? So, contracts were set up stating what must be done, in return for how much pay. Your kid won a school prize? Fine, take a half day annual leave, if you want to watch the school prizegiving, or if you want to go early on Friday. Ring in sick? Ok, but be prepared to go to the SOE company’s doctor to verify whether or not you’re being honest.

            The first children born in a neoliberal NZ will be 33 years old and n doubt a second generation will be starting to enter the workforce in a few years.

            Two generations of people who never think to open the door for someone (of either sex) or stand up for full-fare paying passengers on public transport. Who will mow the old lady next door’s lawns – for a price.

            I know I’m generalising, and there are still many people with charitable habits. My point is that neoliberalism discourages them.

            Someone once said that the true character of a person is revealed by the way they treat people who can’t possibly do them any good, and I long for a time when NZ regains its reputation for that as its national character.

            But, which political party is going to ring in that change?

            • gsays 5.2.1.1.1.1

              Well observed thinker and grey.
              I can’t add much to that beyond a political party isn’t the answer.

              The answer is to unfailingly being that person you describe thinker.
              Then when you see it another, especially someone afflicted with neo-liberalism, celebrate it appropriately.

      • Tamati Tautuhi 5.2.2

        She does appear to be a bit of a bully, similar characteristics to Boag, Bennett & Collins must be a female National Party prerequisite for being involved in the
        Party ?

    • RJL 5.3

      I doubt that there was anything important about Barclay. It would have just seemed easier at the time to cover it up.

      Then, each time there was an opportunity to do the right thing, it would have always seemed easier for National to continue covering up than to explain why the issue had been covered up in the first place.

      So, eventually, they are in the position they are in now. A cover up that has just shambled on and on and drawn in more and more people. All for no good reason.

      ‘New information’s on Glenda Hughes’ reads better than ‘New informations on Glenda Hughes’ 😉 (New information is on Glenda Hughes).

      • In Vino 8.1.1

        Sorry, my bad. I also speak French, where ‘informations’ means news. I did not look at the sentence carefully enough. But why “New information is on..” rather than the normal English “New information on..”? The title is still strange.

    She may just take one for the team like Byrne did over the Adam Johnson affair with a highly implausible ‘judgement error’ excuse.

    This is a golden opportunity for an all out attack on the National party! Social Media, LSM if you can,Newsrooms doing their bit & getting people actively engaged in all mediums to talk about the illegality of the recording & the corruption & Bill english being not fit to be a Prime Minister!
    Its a “Sun Tzu” text book learning,” advance and be absolutely irresistible, if you make for the enemy’s weak points”.
    Tip the National party over before the election!

  14. Gets worse 14

    The deeper you delve the worse it is, there is a lawyer down south who is close to her through horse racing connections and i’m relaibly told was present at an interview with one of witnesses just before police dropped case

  15. Grafton Gully 15

    “the illegality of the recording & the corruption & Bill english being not fit to be a Prime Minister!”
    Their other weakness is they’re a tired out, dysfunctional government that’s been in power too long.
