The stealing continues unabated

Labour slipped this little gem under the radar screen with all the fuss over the stupid waterfront stadium.

The Government's operating surplus for the three months to September 30 was $1.864 billion, $407 million above forecast on the back of a higher tax take and gains from investments.

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.
