Future Auckland a front for the Greens.

Recently, the Greens started banging on about a great new local body website called "Future Auckland", which is at futureauckland.blogspot.com.

After reading this drivel and noticing a propensity to endorse 1880’s solutions, I was curious who "Concerned Citizen", the host of Future Auckland was.

Turns out that the graphic for future auckland is sourced from a website www.palaver.co.nz , a website design company that belongs to Jeremy Hall.

I know that name. Jeremy Hall was a former City Vision candidate until Bruce Hucker dumped him for disloyalty in 2004. Check out this google cache of the article.

and a google search for Jeremy Hall also reveals he was a Green Party candidate for the 1999 election, (number 32)

Now, the point I make is this. Future Auckland is being dishonest about what it stands for. It doesn’t at all flag its political stance and suggests itself to be fairly neutral, although commentary is certainly apologetic towards the Hubbard administration.

Anonymous run blogs like mine are fine when people know what they are getting
from views on the political spectrum.  It’s a little intellectually dishonest to be anonymous in name and deceptive in political views though.

Now some might ask how dishonest is it really. Well just peruse Jeremy Halls articles on his site.

In Summary;

So have we outed the Greens? Maybe, maybe not.

The point is why don’t they just declare their affiliations and let people judge them on that. Now we will just think they are bunch of train loving dickheads.

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.
