Labour are Hobbit Haters

Labour are now confirmed as Hobbit Haters:

A Labour-led government would change the law around film workers, even if it meant losing theThe Hobbit films overseas, as part of a major policy release around employment relations.

The Work and Wages policy, released yesterday, has at its centrepiece the establishment of an independent Workplace Commission to set minimum standards of pay, conditions and union rights across industries such as security workers, supermarket workers or retail workers.

The standards would apply as statutory minimums, but individual contracts would be exempt and the commission would have the power to exclude small businesses.

Labour’s labour issues spokeswoman Darien Fenton said this would push wages up and erase anomalies where people were paid differently for the same job in the same conditions.

Labour also pledged to repeal the law that made film workers independent contractors by default.

Labour must be Orcs, they hate Hobbits too.

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.
