Has the ghost of Rod Donald finally asserted itself. The Greens are calling for a "Citizens Assembly" to work through the Electoral Funding issues.

Unfortunately no, as Russel Norman has said that they still support the Electoral Finance Bill as a stop gap measure. Pity  him this bill is far from a stop gap measure other than it will be National that abolishes it. The Greens have no honour.

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.
