We're not sure whether Cameron "WhaleOil" Slater (Or perhaps that should be WhaleLeaks) was speaking in jest or not, apart from the fact that he has had a good chuckle at Labour's expense. But this afternoon, he himself has provided one of the most memorable quotes we've seen for some time - here 'tis (in extended form, for context):
The last word about my alleged involvement with National or that they are my pay-masters (how can that reconcile with Labours attacks about me being a beneficiary?) or controllers really rests with Peter Goodfellow:
National had no interest in Labour’s information of that kind and was not looking for it.
“We don’t condone that sort of behaviour at all.”
He declined to comment on Slater or his actions.
“I don’t have any control over him. If you see what he has written about me you would probably say I probably don’t have any control over him. I mean you are talking to the wrong guy there,” he said.
Damn right they have no control over me; no one does, not even me.
