More illegal brochures

It looks like the Rail and Maritime Workers Union is spreading murk and deceit, this time in Dunedin.

An anonymous political pamphlet distributed in at least two Dunedin suburbs at the weekend, has the National Party considering whether to lay a complaint with the electoral commission.

The A4 sized flyer features a picture of John Key on a blue background under the words “The Brighter Future”.

Inside, it lays out “The Brighter Future Plan”, as 1: No Hillside Workshops; 2: No Jobs; 3: Sell your Farmland; 4: Sell your Assets; 5: Close your Schools; 6: Lower Wages and 7: Tax the Poor and give to the Rich [sic].

The flyer, which was posted in mailboxes in at least the suburbs of Maori Hill and Mornington, did not give the name or address of anyone who authorised it.

Of course it must be noted that the group that likely made this illegal pamphlet also supports retaining MMP and are a registered promotor in the Referendum.

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.
