sniff, sniff What is that stench?

The stench my friends is the whiff of rotting government.

Benson-Pope affair and now the outstanding Philip "El Jefe" Field affair.

While we still await the slowest QC in the world, who must be hand writing his notes we hear that Officials have long held grave concerns about "El Jefe"

In Stuff today;

The Labour Department immigration head Mary Anne Thompson revealed yesterday that she verbally raised concerns with then immigration minister Paul Swain over personal representations made by Mr Field on behalf of constituents.

She could not remember when the briefing occurred but said it was "well before" March, when Mr Field urged the then associate immigration minister to allow Thai overstayer Sunan Siriwan to reapply for a work permit – allegedly in return for the man tiling a house he was building in Samoa.  

I hear corruption, rorting and by-election, maybe a little prison.

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.
