Trotter on Ports Dispute

Chris Trotter has gone all misty eyed and asked the union to stand strong. He comments in his post:

So stand steady, comrades. If it seems dark now, it will be lighter soon. You are not alone. You have right on your side – and time as well. Every day and every ship that passes brings the moment of reckoning for Tony Gibson and his mates one day and one ship closer.

Strong stuff…but last night at 10:09pm the Passat Spring docked at Fergusson terminal…this ship didn’t pass.

Garry Parlsoe has told the world that not a single ship will be worked, and Chris trotter says the ships will “pass”…they are both dreaming.

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.
