Letter to the Editor: Judith Collins

I am tempted to suggest that the pressures of Parliamentary
life has finally become too much for Judith Collins, and she
has lost the plot. How else to describe her attempted
character assassination of a TV1 reporter. But it goes far
deeper than that.

This was Collins' own nasty character coming out in a very
public way. This was a ruthless attack upon a member of the
media - an attempt to make an example of one journalist and
to send a thinly disguised message; "don't mess with me or
my National Party mates".

This is the same arrogance that landed Aaron Gilmour in hot
water last year,  and motivated Paula Bennett to release
private details of two solo-mothers back in 2009.

Whatever the reason, this should serve as a clear warning to
all journalists not to share their private details with
politicians. When politicians like Collins are backed into a
corner, they will either surrender and resign with good
grace - or, like a cornered, feral rat in a Karen Walker
suit, lash out.

September 20th can't come fast enough.

    It looks like Judith is not shooting her self in the foot but also Maurice Williams who went out of his way to help all and sundry in particular Chinese people.For a journalist to enlist Judith’s help can be seen to fall in the same category hence her swift withdrawal.

      Hmmm, Frederik , the journalist under attack, Katie Bradford, has denied seeking Collins’ assistance;

      “Back in 2010 my ex-partner was considering applying for the Police force. At the time it had been suggested to him that he might have an issue being accepted. I recall that this came up in informal conversation between the Minister and me, but I never asked her to intervene. As it was my then partner never formally applied to join the Police.”


      If it’s a choice between believing a politician
      or someone else – I’ll go for the latter any day. Politicians have somewhat of a bad rep for “bending the truth”, shall we say?

    Sadly, I missed that item on the news! Whatever she said it must have been shocking, but can someone tell me what she said?

    You are too nice with the photo you found of her Frank – this is one pre-botox treatments, she still has her frown lines visible…..

      Wish I could claim credit for the Collins meme, Neil, but it’s not mine. It’s one of the fantastic pieces that Francis Owen puts together and posts on his page.
