Finally after more than two years of double dipping, Shane Jones has relinquished his directorship of the Maori fisheries trust Te Ohu Kaimoana.

Obviously Helen has tapped him on the shoulder and said she would make up the difference by promoting him to Labour’s already bloated ministry.

Oh well at least it will be short-lived when the next election rolls around Jones will be back to backbencher salary conditions.

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.
