Water Rates to double, thanks to Mother Hucker

Ok, so the heading is a little misleading but effectively it is true that City Vision is leading the charge for a doubling of water rates over 10 years.

The new policy will see a "medium" family water bill increase from about $920 to $2180 by 2015. This figure is based on confirmed increases of 9.6 per cent and 9.1 per cent in the first two years and a 9 per cent increase for the next eight years.

The good news for us all is that Mother Hucker has confirmed that Mother Hubbard is with him on the doubling of water rates, that will probably make the October elections a "Two-fer."

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.
