We get there in the end, but this one at least has been dragged out
for an intolerably long time
One notes that Hager's book "Dirty Politics" goes right back to 2014 when a not dissimilar drama was then being played out between several of the same dramatis personae; the toff-level graft under the spotlight then being New Zealand's several of the nation's sleaze merchant's systematic compromising of the SFO chief executive of the day, Adam Feely.
The upshot was that Cameron Slater's soulmate, golve-puppet, and too-close-for-comfort confidante, was forced to resign from her John Key-appointed role as - of all people, Dear God! - Minister of Justice - the same Minister of Justice who had also at the time been in the gun for having gone way off-route during an official visit to China to enjoy a cosy wee dinner-cum-tête-à-tête with some private business partner or other.
Today, 7 years later, as the twilight of her parliamentary career implacably bears down on her, Cameron Slater's soulmate, glove-puppet, and too-close-for-comfort confidante has, phoenix-like, risen to the rank of HM's Loyal Opposition in Extremis. Consider her persona and her reputation, and now her present-day elevation to the nation's topmost loser-leader...
...and savour, if you will, the poetic justice of it all!
