Awash with cash

The government is awash with cash , so det your self for a lolly scramble in election year.

Cullen told manufacturers at his traditional pre-Budget speech in Christchurch yesterday that the latest figures from the Treasury indicated the Government would begin the new financial year with a large cash surplus – not a deficit, as was forecast this time last year.

He would not reveal the size of the surplus but said for the first time that the level was becoming politically unsustainable.

Jesus, it must be fricken humungous for it to be politically unsustainable even for Cullen.

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.
