Dom Post editorial a real scream

The Dom Post editorial this morning is a real scream.

They suggest some handy fundraising ideas for Labour and others.

[quote]Item 1: An autographed copy of the hitherto unpublished but legendary Why Prime Ministers Paint featuring original works by various artists, all signed by Miss Clark.

Item 2: A guaranteed no-fines high-speed trip, complete with police escort, to the footy with the prime minister. Not for the faint-hearted, but guaranteed to get you to the game on time.

Item 3: Cut-price home renovation with a Thai curry meal thrown in. Contact Phillip Field.

Item 4: Making your anger work for you. How mild-mannered Peter Dunne transforms himself into a vengeful man of steel whenever his common sense is questioned by television personalities or auditors-general.

Item 5: Wives, Mistresses and Interesting Things to do with Heineken bottles – a free subscription to Trevor Mallard's gossip service. Seldom accurate, but guaranteed salacious.

Item 6: A day with Winston. Have Parliament's most fastidious dresser be your personal shopper and, if you opt for the deluxe package, Mr Peters will take you for a late-night dinner at the Green Parrot and a trawl of Courtenay Place drinking spots before getting his favourite Somali taxi driver to drop you home. Storming off when the driver demands the fare optional.

Item 7: Sure to be hotly sought-after by the ladies. Dancing lessons with Rodney Hide – crash helmet included.

Item 8: Corned beef and peas by candlelight. Another likely to be popular with the ladies. Tips on the art of romantic dining from Parliament's resident Don Juan, Don Brash.

Item 8: A bag of "Fitzsimons' finest" or, for those who prefer a hint of smoke in their compost, "Nandor's nasties".

Don't forget. It's for a good cause. Be generous. They are – with your money.[/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.
