"El Jefe" still at it

Tha National Party has revealed documents that Philp "El Jefe" Field is still at it, rorting and manipulating the system to his and his constituents benefit.


Field bought the Otahuhu house from the Cole family for $259,000 after they sought help from him as an MP because they were facing financial crisis. He sold it 16 months later for $395,000.

The Cole family said their father Sione, who has Parkinson’s disease, was pressured into the sale, which is part of an investigation by QC Noel Ingram.

The letters, obtained under the Official Information Act, show Field wrote to Housing NZ in Otahuhu asking that the Cole’s application for a house "could be approved as soon as possible as they have no place to move to when they leave the property".

Another letter shows Field’s electorate secretary, Fiasili Ah Tong, also emailed Housing NZ asking for "favourable consideration" in allocating a house to the Cole family.


Where is the results of the inquiry? They are significantly late.

Labour must be really sweating now, David Benson-Pope up to eyeballs in sleaze allegations, Ell Jefe continues to embarras and the party hierachary are under the gun for nicking taxpayer funds to buy an election.

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.
