Even Rudman mocks Len

Brian Rudman mocks Len Brown and his train-spotting like fascination with things on rails.

The flash new trains will be dead sexy, and Mayor Len Brown was fizzing yesterday at the thought of taking his once a month photo-op journeys on them.

But for most public transport users, they’ll be something to enviously gaze at as they climb on their diesel bus.

In the year to August, 51.7 million bus trips were taken, five times the number of train journeys.

Trains are never going to solve the transport issues of Auckland, the tracks simply don;t go and never will go where the population is. Rudman is right to adjust his focus from spending other peoples money on his theatre to spending other peoples money on improving bus transport instead of Len’s train set.

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.
