All a bit cute

I’ve been out of, mostly, cellphone and internet coverage so missed all the furore over Cosgrove.

However, isn’t it all a bit cute that in the 2008 election year, Cosgrove received only $3000 from Independent Fisheries as a donation.

And as we now know, in the last election cycle Cosgrove received $17,500 from the same crowd.

What happened between 2008 and 2011?

Well, Cosgrove proposed a new piece of law that would allow his ‘mate’ at Independent Fisheries to develop land near Kaiapoi.

Coincidence? Fishy?

The pressure is now on David Shearer to do to Cosgrove what he demanded the Prime Minister do in both the Nick Smith and John Banks cases…

“He cannot continue to hold ministerial roles while such serious allegations are swirling around him.”

Petard, Hoist.

Cosgrove of course was very vocal in the House too when sledging John banks, often mentioning donations and dates and amounts…I think he may well get some of his own back when the House next sits.

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.
