Ben Cooney was a short lived candidate for the Internet Party in the 2017 Election. His bio read,
“Hi, my name is Ben. I’m a 39 year old 6th generation New Zealander. I adore the Internet Party’s ideology and futuristic, proactive vision of updating New Zealand. Currently we are in the last phases of the failed neoliberal experiments of the last 30 odd years. I see that this has crippled our innovation, our people and our country. I stand for open source media and communications. I aim to open up our channels of media away from the corporate stranglehold that stifles informed debate and silences our unique and progressive collective voice. We must have the ability to hear our voices, music, art and culture and export it to the world and at the same time forge our unique and diverse identity as we move further into the 21st century.”Ben Cooney candidate bio
But he never went anywhere as far as I can tell and wouldn’t even be mentioned except for something I found out tonight. He appears to be the person who called Penny Bright an SIS informant in a video that was later used by Suzie Dawson to smear Penny.
He is also, presumably the Redstar mentioned in Suzie Dawson’s, A Diary of a Person of Interest which means that he had connections to Suzette going back years.
