Greenpeace puppetmaster of Gareth Hughes

Little boy Gareth Hughes has a Member’s Bill in the Ballot called the Copyright (Parody and Satire) Amendment Bill. Understandably no one has paid much attention to it. But they should.

Hughes wants to allow [Greenpeace] to have the legitimate authority to use other peoples’ copyright [SealordCottonsoftShellMcDonalds etc, etc] in order to allow [Greenpeace] to take the piss out of them.

Under the guise of saying we should allow this because some other country allows this, Little Boy Gareth Hughes is forgetting New Zealand actually endeavours to respect the intellectual property and copyrights. And that respect is actually why companies invest in little old New Zealand.

To supposedly “promote an issue freely under our understanding of freedom of speech” Greenpeace has obviously had a little chat to Hughes and instructed him to put this Bill in the ballot. Of course the bill has the full support of Sinn Fein the Green party, the political wing of Greenpeace.

Clearly Greenpeace is worried that their continued mocking of New Zealand companies and little concern for New Zealand employees, might come back and bite them in the arse in the form of a multi-million lawsuit that would clean out their coffers.

Perhaps this is a devious effort by Greenpeace to legitimise their actions to support their lobbying to achieve charitable status again.

Make no mistake, the Greens’ Greenpeace puppet masters want the legal right to abuse businesses they don’t like. How Little boy Gareth Hughes thinks that “the Bill has the potential to increase public respect of copyright as an institution” is anyone’s guess.

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.
