Oh Please, pass the bucket

Helen Clark has described a serial non-bill payer who decided to kill herself by over eating over a considerable time frame and then by ceasing life saving drugs as "a loving wife and mother".

I ask you, what kind of mother eats herself to death and leaves four kids behind? What kind of loving wife chucks away her life by refusing to take prescribed life saving medication?

This case is nothing more than an assisted suicide that conveniently coincided with a power company cutting off the payer of a serial non-payer. Nothing more, nothing less. 

The family has seen this as some sort of cash-in from the sad fact that their mother decidied that life was too tough.

Pass me the bucket so I can throw up all the stupid platitudinous crap that has been uttered mainly from the lft of new Zealand politics.

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.
