Shearer Comes Unstuck on Foreign Ownership, Ctd

David Shearer’s first venture into new policy has turned almost immediately pear-shaped.

For those that missed it, the Labour Leader used his first appearance of the year on telly yesterday to launch a Private Members Bill that would ban farm sales to foreigners.

Laying aside for now that a Private Members Bill actually has to be drawn to be debated, Mike Hosking asked Mr Invisible what would happen if the benefits of foreign ownership did not materialise.

Labour would confiscate the land.  This Bill is quite clearly a shallow stunt – aimed at trying to steal a few of Winston’s supporters.

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.
