Monty – happy to debate the bigger issues with National any time, any place. Unlike the govt we’ve actually proposed changes to address cost of living issues (GST off fresh fruit and vege, cheaper early childhood education, etc), raise incomes (minimum wage increases, tax-free threshold, etc) and get the economy moving again (monetary policy changes etc).

Seems the strongest policy here is ETC….

  • Fresh fruit and veges – at the most $6 a week for a household…
  • ECE – where’s the cash coming from and when?
  • Minimum wage – 6000 jobs lost.
  • Tax free threshold – $10 by 2016 – if Labour can work out how to pay for it…
  • Monetary policy changes – bigger mortgages/higher interest rates ….

The non-etcetera promises here amount to $16 a week…. maybe….. by 2016.

I certainly support etcetera.

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.
