The recent John Key Exposed in 6 Minutes video caused quite a stir among the New Zealand political circuit and was in the running to be one of my most highly viewed videos ever with over 6000 views in just 6 days, It seemed strangely biblical that on the 7th day my YouTube channel was put to rest. It appears as though many were unhappy with the video and reported it to YouTube, This alone was seemingly enough to have my entire account with 3.5 million hits, 16,000 subscribers and 3000 videos deleted permanently without warning!
Vinny Eastwood does more work than ALL mainstream media COMBINED at John Banks' Sentencing
Vinny Eastwood stealing the mainstream media spotlight!
When you are more or less the ONLY alternative radio host and film maker in the country to produce content regularly, it's a great burden of responsibility to cover as much as possible in any given moment. When you're 1 of hundreds and thousands of mainstream media radio and news makers, you only have a responsibility to wait around doing nothing for hours to ask a few shallow questions in order to get a sound bite or two.
I ensure that you are given the full story and have a bit of fun at the same time if possible.
I chased John Banks down the street with a megaphone today He got 2 months curfew Thursday to Sunday 7pm-7am and 100 hours community service. For failing to declare $50,000 of donations that he had a deal with Kim Dotcom to split into 2 payments of $25,000 so they could be donated anonymously.
Penny Bright gives her take on the sentencing and conviction of John Banks for corruption. Why it's a weak sentence that does not send a strong enough message to politicians that they're not a protected species. But at the very least, the very first precedent has been set, a private citizen, can prosecute and get a corrupt official convicted of a crime at last!
An epic and open interview with the man who made private prosecution famous! Graham McCready has served peoples best interest as an advocate for the best part of 50 years. This case against John Banks, former Mayor of Auckland, Leader of the ACT party, Minister of parliament, is one showered in public light but my feeling is the media are just not capable of doing an interview like this! It's fun, off the cuff and gets into some real deep legal and emotional issues, we should all be so fortunate to have such a man in the service of New Zealand and the world should be jealous!
Graham McCready is giving most of the court costs he is claiming to charity! How can anyone still continue to stick up for John Banks without being their own special brand of corrupt scum we'll never know, but it is certain that Mr McCready is taking John Key to court next!
How can anyone seriously believe this tripe from a politician convicted of electoral fraud? 3 years of trial and only on the day of his sentencing does he say "oh there's this water tight, new, fresh, newfangled, unimpeachable, diamond coated, leather armoured, condom latex wrapped evidence! I'm innocent! It will vindicate me int he court of appeal!" "What evidence?" "Never mind that! I don't want to jeopardize my chances of appeal!"
Is ANYONE seriously dumb enough to believe anything he's got to say in his own defense? Considering he never took the witness stand during the trial to defend himself? Hmmmm???
Since The finding of the court Fresh, New unimpeachable water tight evidence has emerged fresh new unimpeachable water tight evidence has emerged And that new evidence completely contradicts much of the evidence given in the court in front of the judge which resulted in this conviction And we're looking forward to releasing that completely fresh, unimpeachable, new evidence in the court of appeal, and in the process of time, that evidence will completely exonerate me of these charges. And finishing up here, I respect the courts, no one is above the law, I've come here today and I stood in the dock with my shoulders back, this has been by installment, serious punishment for myself and my family over nearly 3 years. I have had a lifetime of business and a lifetime of community service and doing public good, I don't file false anything, I don't file false electoral returns, I told you that on day 1 So we're going to the court of appeal to put that fresh, new, compelling evidence about what happened at the time of the luncheon to the court of appeal.
"What is that evidence MR Banks?"
I can't tell you what that evidence is, it should have been received in David Jones' written evidence, we did not know the name or where these people were, It was only until recently have they come forward to put down that evidence for the court of appeal and only after or presumably after the trial. So could we leave it at that because I don't want to affect the outcome of the court of appeal, I want to finish as I began, I am completely innocent of these charges, I would never file a false return and I'm confident that at the end of this long convoluted judicial process I will be vindicated and found innocent.
You have but 1 choice to have a representative in parliament that is both independent and a credible candidate to expose the corrupt & stand by the will of the people, Penny Bright!
