John Key’s BFD speech

Yesterday I asked asked some important questions about John Key’s legacy. This was in response to his speech where he promised $12m for 10,000 new apprentices.

Captain Panic Pants wound up the media saying this is a really big f*cking deal speech with a big announcement. Those interested in politics were wondering whether this was the time John Key finally manned up and talked about policies that are “ambitious” and “a step change”. 

Despite all the hype John Key came up with $12m for 10,000 new apprentices.

Maybe this is “ambitious”. Maybe this is what John Key meant when he talked “step change”.

Or maybe he just bottled another opportunity to help us catch up with Australia.

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.
