Editorial: Howard's drastic solution

The NZ Herald comments on John Howard's necessary steps to alleviate aboriginal neglect.

[quote]Policies of so-called "empowerment' have clearly exhausted the patience of Australians. The policies have certainly had time to work and the abject condition of Aboriginal townships, not only in the Northern Territory, attests to their failure. Dispirited people need help, not self-government, and children raised in squalor need protection, not platitudes. Let us hope these drastic steps make a difference.[/quote]

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.
