Bring back John say readers

Is it time for John Banks to return? – 10 Jul 2007 – Your Views, reader comment and debate on current events – New Zealand Herald

John Banks will be re-elected in a landslide if the comments on the NZ Herald site are anything to go by. Comments are running about 65% in favour of Banksie. Here is a classic example;

[quote]Helen (Grey Lynn)
I voted Labour all my life and voted for Dick Hubbard at the last election. I agreed with what he said about not wanting his mother rated out of her house under Banks' mayoralty. But this is precisely what has happened under Dick Hubbard! Rates have gone up exponentially and added to this is the proposed water rates rise which makes me look back on the Banks' days with nostalgia. Hubbard has been a nightmare; I will be voting for John Banks alongside a number of my friends who voted Hubbard last time. Hasn't Dick made a difference; yeah right! Go John![/quote]

Clearly Jordan, as usual, is so far out of touch so as not to matter as he dips his oar into something he knows nothing about. Best Jordan sticks to lobbying Labour for more Rainbow representation or commenting on how well labour is doing in the polls.

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.
