Nice Charles writes a letter

Charles Chauvel has written a letter to constituents in Ohariu:

Chauvel Letter to Consituents

I think Charles forgets something when he says that Peter Dunne was “elected to parliament 27 years ago. The Cold war was still raging. The Space Shuttle Discovery made its maiden flight. CD players went on sale commercially. DNA profiling was developed”.

Now what is it he has forgotton? Oh yes…Phil Goff was elected to parliament in 1984 as well.

Maybe Charles is right when he says that a vote for someone first elected in 1984 is a “vote for the failed policies and personalities of the past”.

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.
