Labour’s Fortress NZ policy

I’ve been catching up on the weekend political shows.

Shearer has repeated Cunliffe’s out of left field policy to give Ministers the right of veto over private business transactions, like the proposed takeover of Fisher & Paykel by Haier.

This is absolutely startling policy.

What sort of signal would this send to the rest of the world?

This is economic policy by opinion poll.

God knows what sort of impact this would have on our Free Trade Agreements, let alone the impact on householders who’ve invested money in Kiwi companies on the sharemarket.  The premium on their investment could be destroyed with the stroke of a Ministerial pen.

Of course Labour’s also promised to subsidise unprofitable jobs like those at KiwiRail and Solid Energy, while the Greens want to keep the jobs at Solid Energy but leave the coal in the ground.

These policies alone demonstrate Labour and their Green buddies are not fit to govern.

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.
