Con-Air costs us $100,000 per month

Corrections is currently spending over $100,000 per month transporting prisoners around the country on public airlines.
 
National rightly argues this is ridiculous both in terms of cost and risk to the public.
 
Of course I might add there is clearly no rush to get these scumbags anywhere they are after all serving time at Her Majestys pleasure. I fail to see why a rickety old bus with worn shocks, no air conditioning to speak of and welded up windows wouldn't suffice.

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.
