Allan Peachey RIP

I heard late yesterday that Allan Peachey had died, the NZ Herald reports his death this morning.

National MP for Tamaki Allan Peachey has died.

Mr Peachey had been fighting illness for some time and it was confirmed this morning that he had died.

He had announced his retirement from politics last month because he did not think he would have been healthy enough to complete another three-year parliamentary term.

Mr Peachey was 61 years old.

My thoughts and prayers go out tot he family.

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.
