WOBH Summer Series Interviews – Judith Collins

Cactus Kate has picked the best quotes.

Judith Collins on personal responsibility:

“Once we start saying society is the problem that means no one has any personal responsibility”

On who is responsible for New Zealand’s awful child abuse record:

“People who call themselves academics who think of all the reasons why ordinary people…don’t have personal responsibility and its that sort of attitude that means people never take responsibility and they end up bashing and killing their children how can anyone actually do that?”

“Violent offender who acts very much like a tomcat and goes around basically killing the young of the previous partner”.

“What we have is an underclass of people who often are involved in the gang culture, many of whom are Maori but not exclusively but who come from total welfare dependency…and their attitude is they take no responsibility and if they aren’t given what they want they will cause trouble”

On Clayton Cosgrove:

“I think he enjoys being slapped around and I understand he has to beg to get a question now…every now and then he pops his little head up gets a little slap and sits back down”

“He just never does his homework”.

On Labour’s best:

“David Parker’s not bad but he’s a charisma free zone…he probably works hard. Don’t think he will ever set the world on fire”.

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.
