ACT's shame, Winston where's the money

Law on public cash for electioneering a step closerParliament has moved a step closer to renewing a law giving political parties the right to dip into public information funds for electioneering.

ACT should hang its head in shame for supporting the "Fund Sitting MP's Bill" as well as continue to hand its head in shame for not voting in the First Reading of the Electoral Finance BIll. The only redeeming thing that ACT right now can hold its hand up for is joining John Boscawen's legal challenge to the Electoral Finance Bill. 

Meanwhile the Deputy Leader of Winston First shows why they should be turfed out at the next election to disappear off the political stage.

Fantastic, I see Winston First has now caught the Labour disease, that of thinking laws do not apply to them and if they don't like the rules then retrospectively change them. How about paying back that money huh, Winston, Peter, anyone with  some integrity in Winston First.

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.
