20 hours free child care – Yeah Right!

Labour has started the year appallingly.

Its much vaunted free 20 hours of child care policy is a complete fuck up.

Now the Ministry of Education is advising Child Care Centres to raise the fees of those who don’t qualify for the 20 hours in order to cross-subsidise the policy.

In effect other patrons are being asked to pay for government policy despite assurances during the election that this wouldn’t be the case.

Complete and utter balls up. I guess it is to be expected with Mr Smarmy as the minister.

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.
