New Police Minister Annette King has pronouced that the number of police under George Hawkins reign was sufficient.

Parked in the carpark of Duder Regional Park, near Clevedon, security cameras caught thieves smashing the front window of his vehicle and making off
with three backpacks from the boot and sunglasses from the glovebox.

But the Mt Albert economist says when he reported the matter to Papakura police they treated it like an insurance claim.

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.
