The Hypocrisy of the AUSA

The Auckland University Students Association has been at the forefront of action against asset sales. They have endorsed action and press releases against them, including a march and protest against asset sales at the recent National party Conference.

They are of course A grade hypocrites.

While they oppose asset sales by the government they aare hocking off their own assets, and not a partial or mixed ownership model either.

The electorate offices of Botany MP, Jami-lee Ross, are owned by the AUSA Property Trust Number Two and they are currently being advertised for sale. I noticed this because I drive past his office every day…twice and there is now a big sign out the front.

It seems that the AUSA likes to march and protest but is meanwhile doing exactly what the government is doing behind the scenes. I have no problem with them re-adjusting their portfolio, or even selling the assets, but I do have a problem with their rank hypocrisy in opposing asset sales outright while they are selling assets themselves.

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.
