Third world solutions to third world problems

When you hear the Labour party talking about poverty in New Zealand they really don’t know a thing about what they speak of.

You see we have a welfare system…every “poor” person in New Zealand has access to lighting in their homes, to a fridge, to a washing machine to hot and cold clean running water.

But what if they didn’t…would the “poor” be as resourceful as these people from Manila in the Philippines? Somehow I doubt it…too long have they relied on the state to fix their every problem…hell they can’t even clean up mould anymore.

We can learn a lot from 3rd world countries. Third world solutions to third world problems. Darkness during the day – plastic bottle, water and chlorine = light.

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.
