Frankenstein Super City

Rudman takes the gloves off. I don't need to say anything about the undemocratic super-city proposal other than to quote Rudman.

[quote]If a camel is a horse designed by committee, then the new local body Auckland's Big Four mayors want to create is more akin to a Frankenstein monster.

"I want a single city," says Dick.

It's yours," say the others.

"I want a three-city structure," says Sir Barry.

"Done," say the rest.

"I want to be Lord Mayor," says Bob.

"Hear, hear" is the unanimous response.

Which just leaves George, who admits he doesn't really know what he wants.

"No worries," say the rest. "We'll throw that in as well. Pretending we don't have all the answers will look good."[/quote]

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.
