Clark on standards and DBP

Pope David Benson comes up for his last grilling for the year today. Perhaps it is a good time to remind everyone of someone lovely quotes from the Rt Hon Helen Clark:

Helen Clark on public accountability: “We will restore public accountability, openness, and honesty.” (Taranaki-King Country campaign speech – 1999)

Helen Clark on honesty: “I want honesty in politics. I want politicians to say what they mean, and mean what they say.”  (Labour Party Conference, May 1999)

Helen Clark on the word ‘responsible’: “Responsible—I interpret as being morally accountable for one’s actions.” (St Andrews on The Terrace – 1999)

… and finally…

Helen Clark on Pope David Benson: "He is hard working and conciencious Minister" (Parliament, December 2005)

…notice any irregularities or little white lies here???

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.
