Helen acts like African Dictator

Sideswipe: Tuesday – 17 Jul 2007 – Sideswipe – New Zealand Herald

As if her speeding through the countryside in a cavalcade wasn’t a bad look Helen has now resorted to making herself look even worse. Check out this story in Sideswipe today.
[quote]A reader writes: “On Friday 13 I was parked in Birdwood Cres, Parnell, talking to a friend. At 10.45am a large white limousine swept up and parked, angled across the road. Out hopped a large lady driver who opened the rear left door and returned to stand at attention by the driver’s door. No one was in the rear of the car but a large collection of dry cleaning or clothing purchases were hanging on the rear hook. Immediately afterwards another large silver car screeched to a halt at an even worse traffic-blocking angle behind the limo and out charged two dark-suited and sunglassed young men. One raced to station himself by the opened rear door of the limo and the other ran over and positioned himself by the entrance to Jane Daniels – an upmarket purveyor of ladies’ frocks. A serious shopping expedition was under way by someone who thought themselves very important. I wanted to leave, but was totally blocked by this VIP gathering. The men in dark glasses ignored my protestations until suddenly, from the frock shop, emerged our fearless leader Helen with no parcels but dressed in her signatory red and black. She swanned into the limo, which was still blocking the street, and after both cars executed a series of complicated, rapid reverse manoeuvres, raced off. I know we are no longer allowed to make fun of our politicians but this was ridiculous. Who the hell does she think she is?”[/quote]

In case you hadn’t realised, Helen thinks she our Benevolent Dear Leader, President for Life.

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.
