ACC soap opera becomes Shakespearean tragedy - In defense of Nick Smith
wicked tournament of lies this ACC fiasco has become.
Let's be clear. I don't care IF Nick Smith has had sex with Bronwyn Pullar. I don't really care all that much that Nick wrote on ACC letter head that he had known Bronwyn before her accident and can attest to the negative impact it has had on her since.
Yes I know Nick over stepped himself with the letter, and yes naughty, naughty. But this sexual innuendo and apparent over stepping of Cabinet protocols all pale into insignificance to the central issue here, that NZers are getting dicked around by bloody ACC who will use every excuse under the Sun to deny compensation.
Even National Party activists deserve to be treated with dignity and watching ACC throw Bronwyn to the Police over a faked allegation that she threatened to expose ACC negligence in return for compensation boils my blood. I say faked because the doyenne of the right, MFB (Michelle Fucking Boag) was in that meeting. Say what you will of 'chelle, but she ain't stupid enough to rock up to ACC in the capacity of a support person and threaten them with a bribery option. That ACC are trying this on is extraordinary.
We are seeing an arrogance on behalf of ACC that should be deeply concerning. They actively decline people requiring help, through their own negligence they release confidential papers and when called on it, bully and intimidate a woman who has an existing complaint against them.
This is a story of a department out of control and drunk on it's own power, it has bugger all to do with Nick Smith.
