Treating? Bribery?

Arguably a bicycle could be considered to be “entertainment” and therefore covered by the “Treating” provisions of the Electoral Act. Arguably it could also be considered “Bribery“.

In any case it is pretty dodgy for the Greens to be offering unspecified “cool prizes” and a bicycle if you enrol to vote and agree to receive Green propaganda.

Just a few short months ago the Greens could claim to have a high regard for ethics, unfortunately with the onset of the election campaign it seems those ethics have been put away in a recycled paper bag somewhere.

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.
