Dyson’s two fingered salute, Ctd

I still can’t work out why Ruth Dyson is raining on Len Brown’s parade. Back in June 20111, Labour’s mayor said:

“I sure as hell want to see a convention centre in Auckland and see it as being one of the most critical things for us becoming a destination and not a gateway,” Mr Brown said.

So long as the ratepayers aren’t paying for it, and it appears that Sky City is the one coughing then I’m right behind Len Brown.

I shall remain silent on len Brown breaking his election promise of a sinking lid on pokie machines. As far as I’m concerned let the losers pay for the convention centre.

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.
