Play of the Day

Jami-lee Ross had to give Jacinda Ardern a hand with Labour’s alcohol policy on Breakfast this morning.  Classic.

Yes Jacinda, Jami-Lee was right.  Here’s the policy that Labour and Lianne Dalziel are promoting.

“We should set a minimum price that would prevent wine from being sold for less than $2 for a standard drink.”

Ardern should find out about the policies she’s promoting before grandstanding on them.

But since we are talking specifics there are 37 standard drinks in a litre of spirits – so the cheapest 1l bottle of gin or vodka, or rum under Labour’s policy would be $74.

Currently a litre of top shelf Bombay Sapphire Gin (A Whale favourite) goes for $45.

And Labour’s policy would mean the cheapest dozen beer cans would cost a minimum of $24.

And they’re seriously trying to sell this policy to Waitakere man? I hope so.

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.
