Manufacturing a crisis

The Greens and the EPMU…don’t they make a fetching couple, are manufacturing a crisis. The simple facts however prove their lies. They even have the audacity to question the statistics produced in the Household Labour Force Survey.

There is no sudden crisis in manufacturing – and by the way Labour opposes jobs at Heinz (a manufacturer).

Dodgy manufacturing figures and the high exchange rate are merely the cover Labour and the Greens are using for their loopy money printing policies.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Labour and the Greens could tell the truth for once.

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.
