We will be watching with interest the outcome of the audacious Whale at Gotcha who breached some suppression orders of a couple of apparently semi famous people. Whale's Gotcha is not for the faint hearted.

With think we push the boat out at times but Whale pushes it out and opens up the throttle.

Now there are those out there who will think that Whale is doing all this purely for the publicity and its no secret the Whale is happy to blow his own spout so to speak. And everyone is listening as he has, we understand, broken Kiwiblogs stranglehold on the NZ blogosphere

But make no mistake he also has a strong sense of justice and he makes no secret of what he believes in.

We have spent a bit of time with him here and there over the last year or so and he openly admits to suffering depression.

He also claims to be mad and seriously after a few hours in his company its not hard to believe that a psychiatrist would certify him as bloody barmy at best and completely certifiable at worst.
But just because he suffers from depression doesn't mean he is stupid. He is highly intelligent actually quite likeable and above all fearless.

For that we have a great deal of respect and admiration.

We too have a bloody problem with suppression orders. They should be only used to protect innocent victims.

So we think that this is an issue that needs debating. And we thank the Whale for being the one to really get the country thinking about what is a very serious issue about fairness and our court system.

So Hail to the Whale!

The NZ equivalent of Alonso Quijano, aka Don Quixote.
I bet if and when the matter comes to trial Judge David Harvey will be assigned to hear it.
He's smarter than the average bear.

Without a doubt....... A dork, and sadly for him he is also cursed with arms skinnier than a 7 year old female ballerina. And if that is not enough he has a unicorn tattoo.
He wears sunglasses because little girls keep kicking sand in his face.
He is the opposite of Chuck Norris.
Word verification: halfman. How does it know?

Makes a radical difference to the wimp Farrer who doesn`t have the guts to question Govt Climate policies for fear of losing kudos and contracts. Kia kaha Whale.

I know a person who was sexually abused by her uncle, and there is no way in hell that she would want him named. Whaleoil shouldn't assume that he speaks for the 'victims'.

Also, the media already ruin the possibility of a fair trial (remember Scott Watson anyone?). What happened to innocent until proven guilty?
