Free pools?

On day 75, Len Brown has announced his 9th project of his “100 projects in 100 days”. It is to commission another report into the feasibility of having the 23 council pools across the region free for swimmers. Of course it doesn’t mean it is completely free because it will be the ratepayers coughing the estimated $37 million. As per usual it is Bernard Orsman running the lines as if he had done the work himself instead of repeating what Conor Roberts, Len Brown’s chief spin weasel had sent him.

So when Len Brown says free he really means free to swimmers and adding the cost onto ratepayers bills.

The good news is that with all his little pet projects eating up cash, Len won’t be able to afford his silly rail loop idea, let alone his rail to the airport fantasy.

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.
