Whale’s response

June 16th, 2011 at 9:00 am by David Farrar

sent a vaguely threatening letter, as did Greg Presland. Both imply legal action if Whale does not destroy all the information he has.

Whale has responded to Labour General Secretary Chris Flatt. Some extracts:

In response to your let­ter dated 15th of this month, I agree to take the steps you require on the fol­low­ing terms:

  1. You resign immediately.
  2. Trevor Mal­lard resigns as the can­di­date for Hutt South and is replaced by my old mate Dar­ren Hughes who has been treated so shab­bily by the Labour Party.
  3. Dar­ren agrees to only wear Swazi cloth­ing for the next year, and gets his uncle to take me shooting.
  4. Fred Dagg gets his right­ful posi­tion at the top of the Labour Party List. In perpetuity.
  5. Helen Clark becomes Dame Helen in the New Years Hon­ours list.

You can see the full list on Whale’s blog. I wonder how many months Whale can keep this going.

    Just what are the Labour Party proposing. Send in the Union heavies??? They have done that and more over their long and chequered history. But I do think the credit card details be suppressed

    Interesting to see the labour party when the leak is on the other foot. Bully and threaten.

    All the while apprently unworried by the fact that they’ve been giving ever scammer in Nigeria free access to their supporters credit cards.

    Greggy aka mickey svage seems mopre concerned that someone might actually take a look at what hes been using his card for than it future missuse. That can be dealt with by a single phone call. On wanders what hes shitting himself about.

    Curious. How might someone see what someone else has been using their card for?

    “the recent Labour Party website breach has not resulted in any compromise of donor credit card data” – transaction handler Flo2Cash.

    Surely if you’d used your credit card to donate to labour the first step would be canceling and getting a new one, the concept in Greg Presland’s letter that the biggest worry he has is National/Whaleoil is frankly laughable, it’s the professional credit card thieves I’d be worried about.

    Well Whale really has no valid reason for continuing to hold the data.

    Except that Labour keep giving him a reason to by continuing to bang on about it, reminding everyone how they were well and truly pwned on ths occasion.

    This morning Whale has some additional gems that are worthy of the time to read.
    I was especially amused by the refence to dogs in his post on funding. It’s well buried and only those that have followed the (Auckland) issue might put two and two together ……
    But overall, Whale shows up Garner (TV3) as someone who has been spun (to death?).

    Anyone who believes there’s a possibility – no matter how faint – that their credit-card/bank-account-access details are no longer secret should take immediate steps to change them.

    Anyone who doesn’t is a fool.

    If Labour Party supporters are aware their details may have been compromised and haven’t yet acted – they are fools … or am I essentially repeating myself?

    It depends on how long Labour will keep feeding a troll. Continuing to feed the troll would require a fairly high level of stupidity, but recent experience suggests Labour have stupid to burn right now so it’s wide open.

    Cam’s little campaign seems to have jumped the shark . . . coupled with the fact that he seems to have bottled on his big “expose”, just like he did with his name suppression case. Also, it is incredible to me that Slater was totally oblivious to the palpably obvious tactic that Labour would use in response . . to blame the whole thing on a National Party conspiracy. Pwned.

    @flipper. Well spotted (woof, woof).

    Good that you also avoided anything to do with suppression orders….

    Um, reality called – its wondering when the two of you are going to get reaquainted.

    If you think that the Whale & Nats are the ones getting pwned here, then you’ve seriously lost the plot.

    Angus – wishful thinking. It would only be “pwned” if any non-morons believed it. No evidence of that so far…

    So Whale dropped his nuts again, National backs off by killing the story in the MSM and Labour learns another lessson in how low the right will stoop to stay in power.
