Is Manukau becoming anti-business??

This from the Herald this morning.

[quote]… the proposals have provoked an unprecedented show of unity by rivals Westfield New Zealand, AMP Capital Shopping Centres and Progressive Enterprises.

Clearly Manukau's rating policy along with other councils are starting to impact on business.

Councils should really be encouraging businesses to establish not discourage them.

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.
