Even Mike Moore thinks Helen is a Muldoon

Things are real bad for you when your old colleagues compare you to Muldoon and that is exactly what Mike Moore has done to Hlen Clark and her taudry, venal government.

He has done so in an article defending the rights of the Exclusive Brethren to say and do as they wish depsite how loathsome you mayfeel about their particular beliefs, just so long as they don't break any laws.

[quote]Having said that, they have a right to spend their money as they see fit, within the law. They have the right to sit in the Parliamentary Gallery to pray and pressure those who sit in Parliament.

The issue here is spending within the law, not just the legal law, but what is regarded as our moral law, our time-tested conventions. But it's their money, their time.

The answer to all this is transparency, putting their name to the publicity, letting the people judge – it's called democracy. What is deafening is the silence of those who campaign for civil liberties, correctly speaking up for those who have no voice.

Why the silence? Because, from a liberal perspective, it's hard to defend people who oppose everything you stand for. All the more reason to stand up for your opponents' rights. That's what makes us better than them.[/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.  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.
