Summer Smackdown

Labour decided to use David Parker to attack the government over the Westpac Farms, formerly owned by the Crafar family sale. It was a poor choice and John Key smacked up David Parker comprehensively.

It seems that Labour’s new qualification criteria is that you live here…I wonder what they will do when James Cameron decides he wants to live elsewhere.

Only a fool like David Parker would try to say that it was better for the farms to stay in the ownership of a broke farmer and his inbred family than get some good capital investment.

There is also an interesting point of order from Winston Peters, who appeared to slur his words and his wig is clearly askew.

Maurice Williamson followed this up after with his smackdown.

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.
