Shearer on the convention centre, does he even know anything?

So David Shearer reckons that;

“I object to the deal because, frankly, it’s building a convention centre on the backs of problem gamblers. It’s ultimately pulling money out of people’s pockets because they’re gambling and putting it into a convention centre. I think we could be above that in New Zealand.”

Does he know where local sports clubs and community groups get their funding from? 

Pokies and Lotto funding is where.

What’s he saying?

That NZ should get rid of this funding mechanism because the sports clubs and community groups are “pulling money out of people’s pockets because they are gambling and putting into” the local sports club or community group?

The man is a stumbling, bumbling idiot.

Gambling is simply a tax on stupidity…long may it continue.

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.
