The difference between Australia and NZ

On the one hand we have Trevor Mallard and various other attention seeking morons wanting to ban Chinese ostensibly, but foreigners in general, from owning land, and at the same time forbid Kiwi owners from digging up or enjoying the resources that they already own. Leaving with little option other than tos ell to the highest bidder.

And in Australia, one decidedly plain woman…ok ugly…with her sale of shares to Posco, a Korean company, has cemented her place as Australia’s richest person and is closing in on the title of the world’s richest woman.

If she lived in New Zealand we would have had Trevor Mallard try and spike the deal, Bernard Hickey decrying the deal, Gareth Morgan insisting she pay capital gains tax, never mind Australia has one, and he refuses to pay the same and Selwyn Pellett telling us all that she should set up a high tech fund to provide massive corporate welfare for him and his mates so they can enter tame competitions and call themselves entrepreneurs.

So while Australians enjoy their wealth garnered from mining and other magnificent feats of engineering, here in New Zealand we are moaning about some clapped out farms of no real consequence on marginal land that without the cows and the associated Fonterra shares is pretty much worthless.

What’s got me buggered is this news from years ago:

The one confusing factor is that of lactose intolerance. The majority of Chinese adults suffer a deficiency of lactose, the enzyme needed to break down the lactose in milk and the common trigger for lactose intolerance.

Wait until the petite Chinese women realise that you don’t get a Kiwi women’s arse without eating mountains of dairy.

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.
