Panhandling Ratepayers for Nickel and Dimes

Tonight Len Brown got another kicking, this time from TVNZ over his constant sucking on the teet with coffee’s and teas at cafes around the place.

Once again his entitle-itis shows itself with his strenuous defense of his right to have coffee, tea, snacks and lunch on the ratepayers of Manukau, the very people who pay his prodigious salary to be the mayor and also it seems pay for him to eat lunch as well.

I bet the poor of Manukau were surprised to learn tonight that the mayoral salary of $150,000 also has “plus lunches, dinners, fundraisers, stereos, Xmas hams, groceries, kids icecream and what ever else takes the Mayor’s fancy” in fine print on the bottom line.

This is troughing extraordinaire. Len Brown needs to go. What is it with these Labour party troughers?

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.
