Government moves to clamp down on capitalism

Labour is intent on stealing peoples property rights.

The latest assault is on so-called ticket scalping. labour intends to make the selling of tickets for major events.

The legislation will make it unlawful to deal with sports tickets in two ways: it will be illegal to sell a ticket for more that its face value. In other words, you can on-sell a ticket, provided you do not make any profit on it; and it will be unlawful to give away tickets to a major event as part of a promotion package in a manner which suggests that they are an authorised sponsor of the event (i.e. ambush marketing by association).

So if I buy a ticket to a rugby test which subsequently sells out and then can't make it so decide to put it up for auction on Trademe to see what the market thinks of the price that will be illegal…..thanks a lot you anti-capitalist socialist losers.

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.
