Does he feel the same way about Mr B?

White Ribbon Day New Zealand

Simon Bridges made a statement that New Zealand still has a serious family violence problem when talking about a Bay of Plenty Times Weekend story about convicted child abuser Reuben Anthony Major.

Tauranga MP Simon Bridges says the case is a “graphic illustration” that New Zealand still had a serious family violence problem. A “complete culture change” needed to happen before the problem would be eliminated, he said.

I wonder if he feels the same way about Mr B? What will he do to ensure the party takes the same stand he does and calls out Mr B?

Will he support constitutional change that requires all applicants for Regional and Board positions to declare whether or not they are subject to any court action or even if they are subject to any name suppression orders?

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.
