I am thinking of becoming an MP

Seriously folks this has potential.

Previously I wouldn't have got out of bed for a back bench MP's salary, but now with Speaker Wilson virtually giving a carte blanche for anything outside of parliament I reckon there is real potential to make a whole heap of hooter with this lark.

Here is my propsed rate schedule ansd estimates of earnings.

  • Visa representation $1000 and $5000 success fee (target of 7 per week and 2 success means a potential revenue of $884,000)
  • Inland Revenue representation $1000 but with a 10% of savings fee if successful. (Hard to estimate revenue for this one but I would plan for 5 representations a week so that is $260,000, the success fees I can only guess at but lets say another $100,000)
  • Representation to any other Government Department $500 and a success fee of $1000 (estimated to return 5 per week and 1 success so $182,000)

Right, where are we at so far. $884,000+$360,000+$182,000=$1,426,000

Ok thats a good start, I am sure i can dream up some more……oh I know seats on Private Company boards….minimum $25,000 a pop and I would aim for at least 5 with my new found lobbying abilities…so add another $125,000 bring my potential earnings up to $1,551,000.

Now that is not to be sneezed at and well worth the effort. Now to find a suitable electorate.

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.
