So much for their committment

NZ Herald

So much for the commitment of those opposed to asset sales…a little bit of rain and they run for the hills:

Anti-government protesters picketing the National Party annual conference today have failed to impress the Prime Minister.

On a wet Auckland day protesters turned up to picket John Key’s speech to party faithful at the SkyCity Convention Centre.

Police outnumbered around 80 students and Poverty Action Group protestors angry at welfare reforms.

But Mr Key described their attendance as a bit light.

And he said his concern were more about the economy.

“We think New Zealanders put us here for a reason, to grow the economy, provide jobs, and make the economy more robust and stronger, get out of debt and back into surplus. We are much more focused on that than a few protestors down in Federal Street.”

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.
