Taito gone by lunch-time?

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

The world is catching up with Mangere MP, Taito Phillip Field now that the election is over with the Prime Minister calling for an investigation into his dodgey dealings with a Thai tiler, and an immigration visa.

Helen Clark has asked senior colleagues to meet the Associate Justice
Minister today and will then assess whether the case has compromised his
position as a minister.


Field undoubtedly has one of the most secure Labour seats in the country, but if the PM were consistent with her handling of this and similar cases, she would have stood Field down as soon as the allegations were made. This could have negatively impacted on the election results in the pacific island community and unfortunatly the “votes before principles” syndrome kicked in.

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.
