Murray is "in da house"

Murray McCully has taken control to sort things out after days of opposition politicians calling on the government to act. Act they did, and now we know why:

A new plan to control hundreds of thousands of Rugby World Cup fans flocking to Auckland’s Party Central is being rushed in today after the Government discovered nothing had been prepared to manage waterfront revelry this weekend.

The Mayor, Len Brown and his council are missing in action with plans for downtown.

Mr McCully also took swipe at the local planners over transport problems, saying he and other ministers had “asked very searching questions of Auckland transport over a long period of time”.

“Suffice to say that there were assurances given about specific things that would be done that were not honoured.”

While Len Brown was practicing his raps, Auckland Transport under the control of Mike Williams and Mike Lee has bollocks up the transport.

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.
