Show me the money strikes again

2013 has kicked off the same way 2012 finished, with the Labour Party’s promising to borrow and spend more and more taxpayer cash.

Yesterday Labour’s Police spokesman Kris Faafoi faced his very own ‘show me the money’ moment, when he was asked on Newstalk ZB where the cash for his latest set of promises was coming from.

Yet again Labour is promising to re-spend the money from the upgrade of State Highway One. Of course that money has been pre-spent by Labour many times over, substantially on Len’s Loopy Rail Loop.

It’s about time Labour actually came up with a list of these supposed savings, given they’ve been criticising every single effort to save money.

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.
