There's trouble at mill

Trouble at mill for sure over the smacking legislation that Labour looks set to pick up so they can ram it through despite overwhelming opposition to it.

Winston First and United Future are seriously having internal ructions over the bill and the Labour caucus itself is seething. Winston First and United Future are also not happy with Labour's tactics to adopt the bill. Peter Dunne especially has been scathing.

[quote]Peter Dunne said yesterday that the Government was "perverting the normal way of doing things"[/quote]

This is all adding up to chaos in the house, chaos that hopelessly inept Speaker Margaret Wilson has little or no control over. Increasingly Question time is becoming a farce as she castigates the opposition and lets Labour loudmouths like Trevor Mallard  and Shane Jones off the hook completely.

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.
