Troughing it up on the large

Were Cr Alf Filipaina and Franklin Local Board chair Andy Baker of one mind at the LGA conference in Queenstown over a proposal to spend $10 million of ratepayer’s money on the V8’s at Pukekohe? Andy Baker is part of the little subcommittee that will determine whether the V8s should go to Pukekohe.

Here is a nice picture of them singing up a storm at the ratepayer funded trough-fest in Queenstown. Apparently they were quite shit-faced, enjoying copious quantities of ratepayer funders wine.

And don’t Alf Filipaina, Penny Hulse and Penny Webster cut fine figures dancing up a storm doing the city proud?

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.
