Karam’s Compensation Car is Crushed

Over at the read-worthy The Paepae, Pete opines,


Joe Karam is default-set to a rigid adversarial mindset.  Compensation or otherwise for anyone is entirely at the discretion of the Cabinet.  Like the case, Karam now obsesses about ‘process,’ when there is no process or rule about this.  ‘Crusher’ Collins obviously feels the Binnie report is flawed (with good reason from what I’ve read).  She wants a review (reasonable I would have thought) and then Cabinet will decide.  But in Karam-Bain land this is a conspiracy against David’s ‘innocence’ and ‘entitlement’ to compensation. Let’s remember, Joe stands to gain here so is hardly objective. Karam is a player (an ex AB) and plays one side (hard).

I think there is a snowflake’s chance in Sydney of Cabinet paying out.  It is simply not politically expedient (the population is divided on this and half the electorate would be outraged. That is bush fire country for MPs). And David Bain has in no way been found “innocent.” That is not what the Privy Council found. ~ J.

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 50s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities. RIDER: This site is not connected to nzconservative, a Catholic site, or NZ Conservative Party, although from time-to-time I share some of the views espoused by both groups and other sites I follow, as published; I am an independent thinker and blogger.

    Karam ought to be charged for perversion of justice.

    I heard him on National Radio this morning talking about all the people that are working on Bain’s case FOR FREE, and I thought, yeah right. They need this compensation payout to cover all their FREE HOURS.
