Anyway enough hilarity.
After campaigning for at least two elections on giving access to quality and relevant tertiary education, yesterday we have Cullen announcing they are chopping the poor quality and irrelevant out . Proposals include;
  • No more "bums-on-seats" funding for low-grade courses such as twilight golf, Maori singalong and dog-grooming.
  • Money to go to courses with prospects, such as business studies, health programmes and trades training.
  • Consultation with polytechnics to nail down firm funding formula between now and mid-May.

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.
