Sacked CEO accuses government of meddling

Labour has been accused by sacked Electricity Commission head of meddling in the Energy sector for political purposes.

[quote]"I can only conclude that I am being removed from office because I stood up to the government as an independent regulator should.

"I have insisted that regulatory decisions be on the basis of the law and the facts and not on what politicians want."

He said he had been promised the Electricity Commission would be independent of the Government's wishes.

"This has not turned out to be true,"[/quote]

Labour has of course put one of their stooges (Peter Harris) in as provisional Chairman.

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.
