Politician of the Week – Judith Collins

The year is but 4 days old and Judith Collins has shown that she is continuing where she left off.

“I get tired of commentators who sit in their ivory towers telling the police what they should do and who live in areas where they’ve never had to confront real crime.

“Anybody who is so moronic to think that someone fleeing police is not criminal activity needs their heads read. Do they think dangerous driving is not criminal activity?

“Police have had years of getting really abused for doing their job and, frankly, I think the public is behind the police and they’re getting sick of the police taking a beating every time the police go and do their job.

“The public realise that police just can’t stand by and let dangerous drivers take over the roads.”

That was in response to suggestions that the Police policy with regard to fleeing drivers should be loosened to stop organ donors criminals trying to flee from Police.

Instead both the Police Association and their Minister are in agreement and there should be zero tolerance. For those who don’t get dead the punishment should be that they be locked up.

The trick now though will be to get the panty-waists in the Ministry of Justice and the judiciary to agree, though knowing this minister I don’t think that will be a problem.

Perhaps though we could also introduce the Mugs in the News concept and start with fleeing drivers as a trial.

UPDATE: It seems the Minister is more in tune with public sentiment that the drop-kick in charge at Justice.

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.
