Minister quits after drunken antics

No, not Ruth Dyson, or Dover Samuels, or even Winston Peters.

This is a headline that you will never see under this government.

A Government minister in Tonga has been forced to resign after being drunk and abusive in public.

Peauafi Haukinima quit as Agriculture Minister after he was evicted from a hotel in the country's capital, Nuku'alofa. He was later arrested and locked up for drunkenness, according to the Matangi Tonga website.

Funny how it never happens here huh!

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.
