Another day, more questions

1. Hon BILL ENGLISH to the Minister of Education: Does he stand by his statement that, "I am also aware that Mr Benson-Pope has stated that his behaviour complied with school policy at the time."; if so, does he believe that statement includes all allegations that have come to light about Hon David Benson-Pope’s conduct as a teacher, including those investigated by police?

3. JUDITH COLLINS to the Minister for Social Development and Employment: How often does he exercise personal judgment in his role as Minister for Social Development and Employment?

12. RODNEY HIDE to the Prime Minister: Does she still believe Hon David Benson-Pope "to be an honest man who answered the questions to the best of his recollection"; if so, why?

This is death by a thousand cuts….and fascinating viewing.

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.
