A National Government would reduce petrol excise by 5 cents per litre as a means of returning the windfall GST currently being collected on the record high prices of petrol.

“This commitment would be acted upon immediately to take effect on 1 October 2005, and the reduced excise level would apply until 1 April 2006 when the National’s programme of tax reductions will come into effect,” said National Party Leader Don Brash on the campaign trail in Pukekohe today.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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