What was he thinking?

Last night was a triumph in many respects for New Zealand. Apart from Len Brown’s appalling delivery of transport solutions everything else went off like clockwork.

However it wasn’t just Len Brown that was a disgrace last night.

I have received several calls to the tipline about an incident last night in downtown Auckland.

Apparently in front of numerous people Howick Community Board Chair Michael Williams tried unsuccessfully to obtain entry to an area to which he didn’t have a ticket.

Not only that the tipsters tell me that he was inebriated and extremely stroppy with the security guards who refused him entry. Michael Williams has a bombastic attitude at the best of times but last night’s effort was appalling.

My eyewitness tipsters said it even went as far as Michael Williams shouting at the guards “Do you know who I am?  I am the chair of the Howick Community Board and if you don’t let me in I will make sure you lose your jobs”.

This is nothing short of disgraceful behaviour from Michael Williams. Questions need to be asked of him about his behaviour. I believe that his attitude and behaviour warrants his resignation. I am certain there will have been an incident report made of this. A good journalist would ask security for details.

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.
