Ain't that the truth

Michael Laws has been a bit of a limp dick and apologised for telling the truth. However he did add this pearler about john Key;

“He’s the Prime Minister, he’s not some pussy that the Labour Party decided to plant in the National Party so I’d say to the Prime Minister get back to watching the rugby and worry about being so overtly politically correct when the rest of the country needs you to show some real leadership around the economy.”

It seems that in New Zealand we now like fore-lock tuggers and mealy-mouth mutterers than plain speaking people. Witness the election of the new Auckland Council, never before has a bunch of such ordinary and less than average people been tasked with such and important job.

There are literally only two new councillors that I’d have any confidence in running more than a cake stall for the local Girl Guides. I fear this country and Auckland is on the brink of astonishing mediocrity.

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.
