Same problems for National

David Cameron is grappling with some issues in the UK that are actually pretty similar to the issues John Key is going to have to deal with in his second term:

First, the Tories set out to prove that they were not callous Thatcherite apologists for big business by embracing climate change policies. However, as the Government admits, these policies add significantly to the costs of businesses that unavoidably use energy, including ceramics, chemicals and plastics. As a result, the existence of some of our staple industries is being threatened. Climate change policies that are likely to destroy jobs are a luxury we can’t afford. A simple solution would be to apply a test based on the approach of the last government. No policy should be pursued if it puts the UK outside the top three most competitive energy markets among our main economic rivals.

An identical problem for John Key.

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.
