A great idea

NZ Herald

Bob Jones is on fire. I love his final paragraphs and cost cutting solution:

It’s time the Government was more innovative. For example, here’s a cost-cutting idea which admittedly would be divisive. Halve the number of MPs. The nation would immediately fall into two passionate camps, being 4.3 million or so people enthusiastically in favour, and 123 MPs, half now facing unemployment, vehemently against.

But I’ve already solved that new unemployment problem; we simply hang them. Here’s a prediction. Watch wily Winston try and pinch my public hangings resurrection idea at the next election.

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.
