Random Impertinent Question

If the Shanghai Pengxin bid for the Westpac farms formerly owned by the Crafar family doesn’t meet OIO requirements because it doesn’t add any value to New Zealand then presumably James Cameron’s purchase of a farm doesn’t either?

Shanghai Pengxin was going to spend $100 million upgrading the farms, it wouldn’t have been leveraged money wither like Fay’s bid…they were also going to open up markets in China and spend millions developing that as well for products other than milk powder.

Whereas Jame Cameron in his favour was going to live on the farm….looks like his little sale is rooted too now by this new interpretation of the law by an activist judge.

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.
