Busy Boy

El Jefe has been a busy boy!

Over the past three years, he has asked for Ministerial intervention with 438 immigration cases, more than double the number of other colleagues.

The next closest is Ethnic Affairs Minister Chris Carter with 176 requests for intervention. And Manurewa MP George Hawkins with 172.

“This is an extraordinary number…the real concern here is there are some people who may see this office as an open door into New Zealand,” says National MP Tony Ryall.

The new Associate Immigration Minister Clayton Cosgrove says it’s not appropriate for him to comment.

The prime minister has already commissioned an inquiry, but the lawyer responsible won’t discuss it or even confirm when it will be finished.

I sure hope the inquiry questions how many of the 438 cases El Jefe benefitted from!

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.
