Remember this

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

“It’s time for National to come clean and identify how many public servants would be out of jobs if Don Brash and John Key ever got to wield their axe.

“John Key – the man who never cries – would have no second thoughts about firing those who run our public services.

“National have repeatedly said they would fund tax cuts by borrowing billions of dollars and cutting billions more out of public services. But they are too scared to tell the public where those cuts would be.”

Thats right, Mrs Peter Davis and Trevor Mallard’s press release of 8 September 2005.

And what do we find in the Herald this morning?

It has also set up a gang of senior ministers – Finance Minister Michael Cullen, Trevor Mallard and Phil Goff – to take a razor to Government expenditure as it tries to meet the price of concessions to its support parties in a slowing economy.

At least National said before the election it would make cuts to unnecessary expenditure, Labour in blantant election lies said that all expenditure was necessary. more importantly they constantly called on National to come clean.

Now we see the true Labour come out. Labour must come clean now.

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.

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