Is Julia Gillard a heretic?

Yet more proof that Australian Labor are more right-wing than Don Brash’s ACT party.

That nasty Julia Gillard wants to pay some teachers more than others

Before the last election Labor promised to pay bonuses of $75,000 to primary schools that improved performance in literacy and numeracy tests.

This week the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, confirmed next week’s budget would commit $425 million to honour another election promise – to provide bonuses of up to $8100 to the top 10 per cent of teachers. The results of the tests are one element expected to be used to determine which teachers receive bonuses.

Sources inside National tell the tipline this is why Anne Tolley has introduced National Standards. However John Key probably considers these sort of policies “extreme”.

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.
