On October 13, an anonymous blogger posted to Labour Party-affiliated website . The blogger, calling himself , is believed to be a senior official, most likely party president , although he has denied it was him.

Of course he has.

    So if Williams is “Batman” does that make Winston “Robbin”?

    Winston couldn’t be Robin, he’s busy flying around in a helicopter behaving like the Red Baron!

    As Williams is Dear Leader’s gimp Batman is quite appropriate.

    No No, you are all wrong. Batman rang the Herald and said he was NOT a Labour supporter. Just a concerned citizen. That is clearly not Mike.

    Just like the little girl who google bombed JK on the Interweb had nothing ever to do with Labour, and no connection whatsoever!

    Tui Advert!

    I posted these actual quotes earlier in the week from TV3 but they are worth repeating

    “I know he believes there are questions to answer (I guess she means Batman)
    but that would mean nothing if a major paper didn’t think there were questions to answer”
    Helen Clark

    “.. The fact that Mike Williams actually showed the Herald these documents , somewhat contradicts
    Helen Clark’s story that she had nothing to do with this and Labour had nothing to do with this”
    TV3 Reporter Scott Campbell

    I wonder if Mike was wearing his Batman outfit while he was showing the Herald his 26 kilos of documents

    And how do the Greens really feel about “Emissions Man Williams,” and his rather large greasy carbon footprint?

    I see Armstrong is a bit miffed with the commies recent attempts to manipulate the media (although I question why the media has taken so long to reach this point).

    A bit of more colourful and descriptive language would have been warranted, given the merry go round that Mike Wlliams and the 9th floor put the media on this week.

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz-election-2008/news/article.cfm?c_id=1501799&objectid=10540540

    >> “Worse, Labour is trying to pull the wool over voters’ eyes by giving the impression anyone made redundant will benefit from its package. That is not the case. But you would be little the wiser from reading the deliberately misleading press material. Add to that the old trick of releasing the package in the afternoon so the mass audience evening TV bulletins got little time to dig deeper – and Labour got the once-over-lightly media coverage it wanted.

    Such overt cynicism will cost Labour little, however. Throwing mud which failed to stick to Key is a very different matter. That blunder has ended up only reinforcing Key’s standing. Some achievement a week out from polling day.” <<

    Hey Duxton I dont think there is enough viagra in the world to turn Mike into Dickman specially if he had to make up to his boss after this sad disaster.

    I am now incandescant. The reality is that this could be the very last election here unless people wake up to the fact that

    the Intellectual Marxists want to control everything, and make all the people remaining in the country dependent on them.

    They really don’t care if NZ turns into a quasi Zimbabwe. As long as those bastards have control they will have all the rich pickings in the State.

    I put forward a possibility that Helen Clark may be a post op transgender. Frankly it matters not one jot!

    It just explains an awful lot. All the relationships and sensitivities start to make sense.

    And really how many females are proud and delighted to have a lowest register male voice?

    Perhaps the procedures were very successful and very expensive.

    Hence the pride!

    Pretty interesting article that.

    Its hard to escape the conclusion that John Key was committing perjury during the SFO investigation (if his testimony under oath).

    And lets face it you don’t need to be a genuis to see this is covering up by Key.
    “[Investigators] eventually went to Jarrett and Jarrett in the end confessed. What he confessed to was he took a private jet and flew into Paraparaumu airport, no passport, came down here, issued instructions because they would never do it anywhere else and got back on the jet and went back to Australia.”

    A prime minister that is a perjurer and a party to NZ’s biggest finanicial fraud? Exciting times ahead.

    expat, the paper work may have been in Melbourne but that doesnt mean the head of NZ Forex division didnt know about it.

    In anycase John Key is obviously lying, the most likely reason he is lying is to protect is friend and successor and not himself especially. Quite possibly (probably?) he was an accessory after the fact, but a level of involvement that would unlikely have ever justified prosecution. Since his friend and successor was given immunity from prosecution presumably he had some level of involvement with it. The defence in the trial clearly felt that his friend and successor was lying in order to minimise responsibility or they would not have made an issue about it.

    Politicians lie, but there is a difference about lying about who painted a charity painting and lying about a multi-million financial fraud.

    If Mike Williams was involved in mistaking the signature on the cheque he is an incredibly sloppy researcher. It looks like a pre-determined strategy by National to manage a scandel they knew would blow up. Doesnt take much to fool the Herald anyway.

    A predetermined strategy of muckracking by labour that has failed and burnt their bridges with the media, thats the only obvious item out of this saga.

    LOL.
