Do you believe Kelly’s numbers?

Lynn Prentice is busy posting his friend Helen Kelly’s numbers on the Ports of Auckland wages. Never mind that she wrote it days before the POAL confirmed the numbers that Cactus Kate released. The Maritime Union has obviously had to call in the big guns to help them.

We are supposed to believe her numbers over those of the company that actually pays the wages.

However she appears to be as economically illiterate as Penny Bright. Either that or she is dreadfully stupid and just blindly repeating wrong figures that Penny Bright manufactured from her mis-reading of company accounts.

So can we believe her numbers. Well it appears that the head of the Council of Trade Unions doesn’t understand how to read a financial statement, even after said statements were proven by me to be demonstrably false. Yet the unions continue to act as if they are best positioned to tell businesses how they should be operating.

Maybe this is how the Hobbit Haters almost cost 3,000 New Zealand film workers their jobs.

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.
