Play of the Day

Winston Peters finally pushed Speaker Lockwood Smith too far.

He was booted out of Parliament after a prolonged day of niggle.

NZ First leader Winston Peters was sent packing from Parliament today for calling National MP Gerry Brownlee an “illiterate woodwork teacher.”

It was the first time Mr Peters has been ejected by the Speaker this term – being sent from the House means he can not enter again for the day.

Not before time either.  He should be out altogether, forever.

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.
