More bad news for Labour

The Waitangi Tribunal has found that the government has breached the Treaty of Waitangi in its dealing with Te Wananga o Aotearoa.

Of course the Tribunal is renowned for dopey lop-sided judgements, and this has all the hallmarks of being another one.

In its report released today the tribunal says the Crown broke its treaty obligations in several areas.

It had failed to complete the partnership agreement and its attempts to restrict the range of courses taught at the wananga was based on "an unduly limited conception" of the wananga’s nature that went against statutory definitions in the Education Act.

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.
