Hobbit hater wheeled in to Ports crisis

Winning the war of hearts and minds mustn’t be important to MUNZ. Clearly, they are failing to win the workplace argument, and now MUNZ and the Hobbit Hater are trying to whip up the privatisation bogeyman.

Not content with having their leader Garry Parsloe ruin their PR, MUNZ wheel in the one woman who represents threats over job destruction, union ineptitude and excessive union arrogance – the woman who became known as the “hobbit hater”, Helen Kelly.

It is ironic that the “boys” on the wharf, where they have allowed just two women to work out of 212, are now having to turn to skirt to assist them. I hope Helen Kelly is insisting that the price for her help will be 50% of the new wharf workforce will be women.

For POAL to commit the same kind of error in toxic representation, they would need to appoint a consortium led by Roger Douglas and Don Brash to go on TV and look cranky and magooish.

Fortunately for POAL, they don’t look to be committing that kind of error.

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.
