63% say Yeah Right Dr Cullen

A TVNZ Colmar-Brunton poll last night found 63 per cent of respondents did not believe Dr Cullen 's warnings about the fiscal consequences of tax cuts.

Effectively saying Yeah Right!!! to the History Teacher.

Of course both Cullen and Helen Clark say the poll is skewed to the right and flawed yet again shooting the messenger rather than listen to the message.

Labour has now effectively lost the tax debate. 

The other debate that has Labour in a tizzy is the priorities of spending where clearly Labour has again mis-calculated. Their vaunted Working For  Families has apparently fallen flat as has pre-funding super and roading spending. The top two priorities for Kiwis are Health and Tax Cuts.

This is clear victory to national for setting the agenda and makes it the second Cullen budget in a row to fall flat on its face.

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.
