Brash quits

Don Brash has resigned from Parliament.

[quote]He said he had no regrets about his decision to enter politics.

"I feel very good indeed about my four-and-a-half years here," he said. But he admitted to feeling some sadness about his decision.

"I've come to the conclusion that now is the right time for me to leave Parliament and I informed John Key of that earlier today.

"I entered Parliament in 2002 with the intention of making a difference and I leave believing that I've done that. The National Party is in great shape to win the next election and I believe that debate about economic policy and about the Treaty is more mature and more realistic than it was five years ago."[/quote]

Thanks Don for all you have done.

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.
