Herald calls for Carter's Head

The Herald has called on Chris Carter to resign over his applaling handing of the Whangamata marina issue and his flagrant breaching of the very laws he is paid to up hold.

[quote]Mr Carter’s embarrassment should be a cautionary tale for ministers tempted to meddle in the judicial process. The fear that courts will arrive at unpopular verdicts has led Parliament to enshrine the right of ministerial intervention in many areas. But that will never make such intrusions any more just.

Mr Carter interfered in a manner that has been ruled out of order by the High Court and wrong by a fellow minister. This episode was the product of individual failing, not the culmination of a chain of errors in a department. There is no question mark over who bears the responsibility. Mr Carter should resign from the Conservation portfolio.[/quote]

just add him to the long and growing list of incompetent and useless Ministers who maintain their jobs because Helen has lost her touch.

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.
