Air NZ accuses Clark of abuse of trust

Air NZ accuses Clark of abuse of trustAir New Zealand chairman John Palmer has written to Prime Minister Helen Clark expressing his concern that she used information given to her in confidence to politically swipe Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer.

Clark quite rightly is again under the spotlight for revealing confidential information for political ends.

Air NZ believes tens of millions worth of dollars of Australian Defence Force business has been jeopardised by the Government's aggressive public reaction to the airline's two Middle East flights. 

Out of a knee-jerk reaction Clark has most certainly jeopardised that lucrative work and for what. The operations in Iraq are under the UN auspices, we sent troops there ourselves and Clark even went to Basra to see those troops.

What was the big deal…..oh that's right, they are well behind 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.
