A Knighthood for Bob Parker?

As readers know I have been collecting information about the Christchurch City Council and in the next few weeks I will be commenting further.

A rumour that has been coming through from a number of sources is that the Mayor offered to take the fall for any Earthquake stuff ups in exchange for a job after he stop being mayor and a knighthood.

This does not seem right for a man who hasn’t actually done anything other than stand in front of TV and talk. He will deserve a knighthood if he leads a successful rebuild, but until he does this rumour should stay just a rumour and there should be no “Arise Sir Bob”.

It also does not seem right that a Knighthood can be traded for taking political flak. Knighthoods need to be for a lifetime of service and contributing to the community, not taking the heat out of a political situation other politicians.

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.
