National Party implies laptop theft is politically motivated

Newshub Report

The theft of three laptops from the National Party’s Auckland headquarters has been described as a “disturbing and sinister start to an election year”, with one MP insinuating the laptops contain important campaign information.

National implied on Monday that the overnight theft was a targeted attack with possible political motivations.

National MP Paul Goldsmith told Newshub the devices contained “the material you’d expect on a party laptop”, including “parts of it” related to campaign strategy and policy.

“On the surface, it’s a deeply sinister start to an election year,” Goldsmith said.

“This is an act of theft with disturbing overtones… I’m deeply concerned about it.”

Goldsmith said the laptops were taken from the party office – one of at least six rooms within the northern regional office.

Deputy Leader Paula Bennett confirmed on Monday that the location is “quite an unusual place”, saying it’s unlikely the theft was an “opportunist” act.

“You have to kind of sit there and go, ‘National Party headquarters, three laptops gone’ – it does really trigger some suspicion, that’s for sure,” she told Magic Talk.

Alarms were triggered at the time of the break-in, but the intruder – or intruders – swiftly left the building after snatching the laptops from staff desks.

Police confirmed they received a report of a burglary at an address on Great South Rd at 9:45am on Monday. Goldsmith said the window had been “jimmied open”, breaking the latch to enter the building.

Bennett said she is unsure if security cameras are installed at the headquarters.

Just a week ago, a billboard at the same office was defaced by far-right extremists, with the group responsible claiming online that National’s Dr Jian Yang is a “Chinese Communist spy”. It’s not known whether the two incidents are linked.

The Labour Party has been contacted for comment.

I wonder who it was and why. Maybe the rat faced writer was short of material for his next hit piece on the Nats. Being election year, he’s due for another Warehouse bargin bin filler.

  1. As I said this morning, shades of the burglary at the Watergate Hotel

    The Watergate scandal was a major federal political scandal in the United States involving the administration of President Richard Nixon from 1972 to 1974 that resulted in the end of Nixon’s presidency. The scandal stemmed from the June 17, 1972, break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate Office Building in Washington, D.C., by five men and the Nixon administration’s subsequent attempts to cover up its involvement in the crime. Soon after the perpetrators were arrested, the press and the Justice Department discovered a connection between cash found on them at the time and a slush fund used by the Nixon re-election campaign committee. wiki

    So began the biggest scandal in presidential history.

  2. Don’t know who’d be brazen enough to do this. If this led back to any party, they’re toast. It crossed my mind that this could be an inside job to smear the lefties (bit cynical I know), but the Nats would be double toast, and I don’t believe they’d do it. The only way I think this could be political is if someone did it who could influence any subsequent police investigation. And even I’m not that cynical.

  3. We all know the vile scum Peters knows he is toast , he knows that Jones can not win a seat because he is a toxic wristy scum , this looks like Slater Lusk and JLR who are insane about beating the nats , all to pay Henry that was Slater free lawyer , it appears that Henry may well have turned on the great Charlatan and they are desperate for something , have people noticed how silent Cindy the Greens and Peters are today , especially after the arrogance of Cindy saying she has not seen him for weeks at Chinese new year on Sunday , when the lazy bag was not even here
