Dead Beat Dad sponsored by the State

Hat tip Sir Humphreys

I hate dead beat dads. Is hate too strong? No I don’t think so. My niece has a dead beat dad. While he snorts thousands of dollars of "burn" he owes over $100,000 in child support payments. He has plenty of money for drugs, but nothing not even a birthday present for his niece.

Now we see the government likes actively supporting dead beat dads.

Phil Goff has been seen on TV congratulating Hamish Stalker on opening his ice-cream factory in Vietnam. Trouble is Mr Hamish Stalker owes over $75,000 in Child Support payments.


Oh…and Mr Hamish Stalker, making it up to the kids in a years time will go down like a cup of cold sick. They for sure will remember how much of a "father" you were to them.

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.
