Public Opinion swings against EFB

Public back call to scrap election law – 12 Nov 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Public Opinion was never for the Electoral Finance Bill, but neither has it been against. that is until today when the campaign against the bill went mainstream.

The Herald has over 58 pages of opinion from outside Helen’s “beltway”. She won’t like the reading of those comments.

Readers contacting the Herald newsdesk have also been almost unanimously in support of a front page editorial today which said: “democracy is not a device to keep the Labour Party in power”.

Finally the debate has moved mainstream. National for it’s part has unequivocally said that they will repeal the Bill if passed. Labour now faces a high stakes game of chicken and we now wait to see who will blink first. Cabinet should have been fun today.

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.
