Banksie upsets the socialists at the DomPost

Editorial: Banksie barks and we all suffer – Opinion – Dominion Post

Nothing is worse than a poor loser, Dick Hubbard to his credit has managed to avoid being such, the same can’t be said for the socialist cry-baby editor at the DomPost who waste many column inches having a whinge about John Banks.

Go cry me a river, Aucklanders are sick and tired of funding other peoples pipe dreams and have voted in a Mayor who will look after the interests of the city. In typical Wellingtonian busybody fashion the Dompost has also neglected to observe that Auckland has several cities that would benefit from the World Cup and only one was being forced to put its hands into its pockets. That situation was and still is untenable.

Judith Tizard should also get the sack. Her outburst that Auckland could lose the final is an act of treason for someone who is supposed to be the Minister for Auckland Issues. The sad, sorry fact is the Minister Judith is the worst person for the job as she is the second highest spender on airfare meaning she isn’t often in the city she purports to represent.

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.
