The Cosgrove Principle

Stuff.co.nz

Clayton Cosgrove doesn’t normally have anything useful to say, but yesterday he said this:

“Why should those who don’t plan to buy shares, for whatever reason, have their taxpayer dollars spent subsidising those who can?” Cosgrove said.

Using the same logic we can immediately apply that to superannuation and solve the problems there…why should those who don’t plan to save for themselves, for whatever reason, have taxpayer dollars spent subsidising their retirement?

Or welfare, why should those who don’t plan to care for themselves, for whatever reason, have taxpayer dollars spent subsidising their lifestyle?

Or the DPB, why should those who don’t plan to take contraception, for whatever reason, have taxpayer dollars spent subsidising their children?

Thanks Clayton…perhaps we should call this the “Cosgrove Principle”?

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.
