The Perfect Storm coming

Fran O'Sullivan points out several things that seem to ellude even the most lightly blinkered lickspittles of the left.

  • inflationary pressure in the economy has been caused by a surge in state spending.
  • Reserve Bank board members are letting it be known to the business community that they are frustrated at the Government's unwillingness to put a clamp on its own spending.
  • The Reserve Bank's single-minded focus on house price inflation carries a monstrous risk.

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.
