Couldn’t tell the truth then, can’t tell it now

Mike Williams, former Labour party President and the one who famously went to Australia to dig dirt on John Key in the H-Fee smear is having a truthfulness problem.

I’ve met Don Brash twice.

The first time was during the 2005 election campaign when I was in a shopping mall in Henderson. I don’t think he recognised me because he thrust some sort of electronic device under my nose and invited me to calculate my tax cut.

I remember typing in some measly income which was probably true at the time, at which point he lost interest and let me get back to my filled roll.

This is the same Mike Williams that Labour appointed to no less than six boards including Transit amongst others while he was president of their party. At one stage during his tenure he was pulling in more than $350,000 p.a. in directors fees alone from his government board positions.

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.
