Fun Police headed by Clark

Fireworks sales facing total ban as PM talks tough – 05 Nov 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Warning: the Fun Police are out, and they are headed up by Helen Clark who is upset at the horrendous noise of the fireworks that were disturbing her chardonnay sipping at home on Saturday night.
[quote]”Last night in my suburb, I felt as if I was in downtown Kandahar [/quote]
She goes further and decided what is best for us all;
[quote]”We are going to have to look at the reports from this one. I think the best use of fireworks is in the beautiful public displays.”[/quote]
Meanwhile at one of those “beautiful public displays” that Clark is so fond of but has never attended, remember she was at home on Saturday night, three people were injured when a “rogue firework” shot 150m into the crowd and injured three girls.

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.
