It's Not Ok

I have refrained from commenting on Jonathan Marshall’s ill advised article about our SAS Troops fundraising for their NZSAS Trust.

I think bloody good on them. They do the hard stuff, our governments put them in harms way and they are looking after their own. They have to because we don’t.

But I am heartily sick of Labour’s politicking over this.

Basically they are saying It’s Not Ok to fundraise for a charity supporting families, but it is ok to send SAS troops to Iraq and to Afghanistan.

Before any lickspittle Labour lap-blogger argues otherwise, the facts are simple, they did, and the photos and documents exist to prove it.

Labour are hypocrites, plain and simple. They put these guys in harms way and then they carp about them raising some funds for their families.

I reckon the SAS should do more of this and start by putting a few Labour MPs like Hodgson in the kill room for practice.

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.
