Whale plumbs new depths:
“I bet the scumbag actually went and asked for his Mum to die so she could distract everyone from what is abundantly clear to even the most stupid of observers.”
Winston Peters is undoubtedly grieving for his mother. No matter what we think of him, he is entitled to our human compassion and sympathy at this time. He has mine.
As Newzblog says of whale oil, “It’s no secret he gets a rise out of attacking the weak and defenceless.” This may just be another attempt to satisfy that vile urge, or to maintain a profile, but it is beneath contempt.
[Update: Or perhaps we should just put this down to whale oil’s preoccupation with another matter, that Russell Brown outlines on his blog A real defamation suit from the looks of it. Could we see an apology from whale only days after he was gloating at yours truly’s little apology?]
