Told ya, but did ya listen?

Michael Cullen continues to deny that economic issues keep people away from New Zealand.

Well it would appear that he is dead wrong.

The Kiwi Ex-pat Association carried out a global census of 29,000 New Zealanders living in 155 countries found that the expatriate community was more significant in both size and talent than in almost any other developed country, with 80 per cent having tertiary qualifications and nearly a third earning at least NZ$100,000.

It also found that;

  • 25% of New Zealanders living overseas do not know if they will ever return permanently
  • more than half of those who do plan to come back won't do so for at least five years.
  • more than 40 per cent of respondents were living overseas for economic reasons.
  • only 3 per cent cited economic reasons as their incentive to return

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.
