Don’t bet on it

Apparently NZ First says they will pay the bill…for the sign idea they nicked. Still no sign of payment for the $158,000 they nicked from the taxpayer.

NZ First leader Winston Peters said yesterday the party always intended to pay Brandon, but had not received an invoice.

“In the campaign you have to account for every cent. We don’t do cash deals.”

Brandon has now sent an invoice, and Peters said it had been forwarded to the party’s treasurer for payment.

As we know Winston Peters does do cash deals, then he denies them, then he lies about them.

I wonder if Perhaps Parliamentary Services simply needs to send him an invoice for the $158,000?

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.
