Hone Harawira and Reality – divorced

Check this exchange in Question time today.

[quote]Hon MARK BURTON (Minister in charge of Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations): In the Te Arawa lakes settlement, the Crown and Te Arawa agreed that the Crown will retain ownership of the water column and airspace, while the beds of 13 lakes transfer to Te Arawa.

Hone Harawira: Given the Minister's response, does he find it reasonable that Te Arawa should be paid a storage fee for holding the Crown's water on its lakebed, and has that fee been factored into the terms of the Te Arawa lakes settlement; if not, why not?[/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.
