Treasury announced today that the Government operating surplus for the 11 months to May was $7.46 billion — $675 million ahead of the forecast in the May 19 budget.

It would have been even higher if it wasn’t for recognition of $307 million of Kyoto liability. One wonders what the surplus would be like without this stuff up.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
