A quiet slap for Winston Peters

One of those issues that will fly under the radar today is the quiet slapping that Tariana Turia gave to Winston Peters.

In the House defending the grandstanding from Winston on Whanau Ora – she reminded Kiwis about Ka Awatea.

Don’t know what it is?

Winston was sacked by Jim Bolger because of his antics over it.

Who was responsible for this new approach to Maori development?

The pensioner of St Mary’s Bay.

Yet another of Winston’s ever flexible positions.

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.
