Pity Parker has already resigned

It is a pity that David Parker has already resigned as Energy Minister as he could have gone over the looming power crisis that he staked his future on not occuring.
Yet less than a month after his assurances we have the experts saying ;
[quote]"By all criteria, the situation is worse than it was in 1992 and much worse than 2003,"[/quote]
and
[quote]The "possibility" of rolling power blackouts cannot be ruled out[/quote]
I agree with their final assessment, "We might get by with unusually heavy rain, but that is a $660 million gamble. The time is close for action, not crossed fingers".

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.
