The leftists at the Auckland City Council look like they have dropped the ball yet again as property owners upset at a 30% downturn in business as a result of the controversial Queen Street upgrade are set to challenge the decision to introduce bus lanes and leave just one lane each way for cars.

One property owner's lawyer told the urban strategy and governance committee that the consultation process was a "Clayton's process, designed to give the appearance of the form of consultation without the substance".

Councillor Faye Storer gets it right when she says the bus lane issue has all the arrogant hallmarks of other central city botch-ups, such as the Queen St trees, Vulcan Lane and Khartoum Place.

Roll on October.

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.
