Oh Dear, Oh Dear, It gets worse

From the Herald

Immigration Minister Paul Swain has denied that he had any involvement in the case of a Thai overstayer who has been paid by a Government minister – despite meeting the overstayer at the minister’s house in Samoa.

Mr Swain, Foreign Minister Phil Goff, Labour MP Ross Robertson and senior officials from the New Zealand and Samoan Police all visited the house of Associate Justice Minister Taito Phillip Field during a break in official talks in Samoa in March.

Mr Field said he took the group to see progress on his two-storey house which was then being built.

And followed up by

Mr Field said yesterday that he now regretted that he had ever suggested that Mr Siriwan and Mr Williams should go to Samoa after Mr Siriwan’s application for refugee status in New Zealand was turned down.

I bet he does, if National are returned this weekend he can look forward to dismissal as an MP. If Labour are returned maybe he will get a stern talking to by Mrs Peter Davis.

The corruption, lies and hypocrisy of this government know no bounds.

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.
