Kindygate scandal – at least $60 million in bank accounts, and rort continues

My revelation that Kindergartens are awash with millions of dollars of taxpayer cash – while screaming with their union mates at the Government for more of my money – is on the front page of the Herald.

Parents are already asking questions.

No credit given to me, but that is par for the course – and even more annoying is the fact the story fails to mention that Auckland Kindergarten Association has ten million cash in the bank.

These figures are all in plain view – and I would encourage other repeaters around the country to have a good look and ask a few awkward questions about the so-called “charities” in their area, which are taking part in political campaigns.

So in the public interest I’ve had another look at the Charities register – and picked out a few more juicy stats.

By my reckoning, there is at least $60 million in kindy association bank accounts – so why are they asking parents for more money? Why do they want taxpayers to flush an extra half a billion down their toilets? And if they are really charities – why are they doing the dirty work of the NZEI and using children in anti-government protests?

By the way, most of the returns are for 2011, so don’t give me any bullshit that all the money has disappeared after the government changed the funding rules. From the looks of these well padded accounts not a minute too soon either.

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.
