What would be a death blow then?

Trainspotters and lovers of spending other peoples money like to make claims, more frequent of lat, that we need commuter trains between Hamilton and Auckland:

KiwiRail has cancelled Hamilton train services to this weekend’s Rugby World Cup quarter-finals in Auckland after selling only 23 tickets for commuters going to both matches.

But a spokesman advocating commuter trains between Hamilton and Auckland says the canning and lack of demand is not a death blow for the proposed rail service.

If bugger all people wanting to pay for s ervice isn;t the death blow then what on earth is?

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.
