"Nice to Have" – $4.12m on a Governor General

Jonathan Marshall has an article about the outrageous expenses of the Governor-General.

Amongst other things there is a bill of $500,000 for photocopying!

I don’t know why we can’t simply outsource the Governor-General’s position to the private sector. Cut the ceremonial bullshit completely, and retain a constitutional lawyer on retainer to cover the constitutional issues if and when they arise.

The retainer would probably only have to be making someone a knight or a dame because it is hard to remember a constitutionally tricky situation that our Governor-General has actually got into in.

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.
