Gareth Hughes killing penguins and polar bears with Bonfires

Dolphin, Gareth Hughes, bonfires

Dead dolphin, helped to an early grave by Gareth Hughes and his bonfires

So after burning up the carbon miles travelling around the country (care of the taxpayer) to turn up at any Greenie cause he could find to support, Gareth Hughes has had a good old fashioned burn off at his place over summer. Isn’t composting supposed to be the ‘Green’ thing to do?  Perhaps if it’s only other people.

How are you unwinding over summer?

My plan is to have a whole bunch of bonfires. I bought a house last year and I’ve got a huge amount of gardening to catch up with so I’ve got a fire permit and as the nights have got a bit longer I’ve started having fires so I plan to do some gardening, clear some wood. There’s heaps of fallen trees we’ve cleared away and straggly stuff.” 

While the wood is inert it sequesters the carbon, but having big fuck off bonfires just helps kill the penguins and polar bears faster if you are a green taliban hypocrite.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
