Good Job

The Government has ditched the loonie Greens silly biofuels bill:

Legislation that would have ensured that biofuels supplied or sold in New Zealand were sustainable has been defeated.

The Sustainable Biofuel Bill, which was introduced to Parliament in 2009 by former Green Party co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons, was defeated at its second reading in Parliament tonight.

The bill was voted down 69-51, with National, New Zealand First, Act and United Future opposing it.

Biofuels are a rort. They have contributed more than anything else to rising food prices, created shortages in staples and are uneconomic without massive subsidies.

Expect multiple companies playing in this heavily subsidised space to go to the wall and good riddance to them.

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.
