Is this another defeat looming for the government?

Labour must be a glutton for punishment this year, either that or David Benson-Pope is bringing his personal proclivities into the caucus and they all want a good paddlin'.

The latest dumb idea being floated is that of the Minister who Holds Helen's Handbag Judith Tizard.

Her and Helen's "bright" idea is to have a resale royalty for artists. The gift that keeps on giving over and over again. It means artists would receive a royalty payment each time an original artwork was resold on the secondary art market.

Gee Whiz, I guess that means that the artist didn't really sell their painting, rather they are leasing it to long tern leasees.

Here's a thought, when something is SOLD it is SOLD….end of story.

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.
