Only in Hamilton

NZ Herald

Ok it could happen in Palmerston North too:

Police are searching for a man who walked into a petrol station and set fire to a pool of petrol on the ground before running away.

Emergency services were called to a Z service station in central Hamilton about 1.30pm today after a man walked into the forecourt, lifted a pump nozzle and put it on the ground before activating it, police said.

He then lit the petrol with matches, before running away on foot.

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.
