by email

  1. International cocktail parties between politicians and bureaucrats can generate up to $500 million in economic revenue for Auckland.
  2. Rates increases aren't actually that high when you take inflation into account. But ratepayers aren't allowed to deduct the inflation related portion of their rates bill.
  3. Water price hikes could possibly come down after the election, but definitely not beforehand.
  4. Modest rates rises are unacceptable for your own mother, but huge rates hikes are acceptable for everyone else.
  5. In politics, as in business, you can leap into risky several hundred million dollar construction projects without public support or due diligence on the financial consequences.
  6. The gay community needs to be treated with more respect, except when they are abusing their own children.
  7. It is possible to replace professional economic analysis with a person's vibe.
  8. A more vibrant CBD can be achieved by eliminating outdoor advertising and forcing everyone to put up smaller shop signs.
  9. Sustainability taskforces help the environment, but discharging human body waste into our harbours can go on for another six years.
  10. Action based leadership is best demonstrated by flip-flopping on major issues.
  11. "Team 20" consensus at council is best demonstrated by launching two coups against your deputy in your first year.

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.
