Is this because Muzza uses the 757 all the time?

300 military personnel are to lose their jobs according to Stuff:

More than three hundred military personnel have been told this morning that they have lost their jobs.

They include 81 officers and 227 personnel from other ranks.

The biggest impact is in Wellington where 108 jobs are to go, with 70 job losses at Trentham and 38 in Wellington.

Other bases to be hit are Waiouru (28), Devonport (45) Linton (20), Ohakea (21),Whenuapai (28) and Burnham (28).

Many of the people affected are long serving personnel. There are 110 warrant offices, 83 sergeants and senior sergeants and 61 majors or those holding equivalent ranks in the navy or air force.

Fourteen Lieutenant Colonels will also lose their military ranks.

The decision affects less than 5 per cent of total military personnel and the Defence Force said that many of those who have lost their jobs were encouraged to apply for civilian roles.

The tipline has been running hot for months about Murray McCully’s extensive use of the 757. I’m reliably told that if the finest of Blue Cheeses aren’t on the menu much yelling and screaming ensues.

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.
