Dick Hubbard has another Homer moment

Rates review vindicates councils – Hubbard – 28 Aug 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Dick Hubbard is increasingly becoming the hapless Homer Simpson of Local Body Politics.

His latest Homer moment is to declare loudly in the media that the Rates Review Report “vindicates” his council.

What did he base this astounding view upon, well because his council had matched the average rates increases nationwide!!

Meanwhile other headlines tell the real story of the Rates Review that hardly “vindicates” his council at all.

Rates take more than necessary, says review
Stop spending so much, councils told
Rates inquiry urges councils, govt to act

The self proclaimed “Peoples Mayor” is actually the “Peoples Homer” Duh Oh!!

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
