Once again we have inconsistency from Labour

Outgoing MP Trevor Mallard hosted a meeting in Hutt South for their next MP, Holly Walker. He looks so enthusiastic about it all too:


The meeting was on behalf of Young Labour and they were campaigning for what they call Tertiary Fares…or cheap public transport fared for young bludgers. 

Now colour me surprised. I thought Labour passed a law removing the differential wage rates for youth. Further they will have spent all day in parliament yesterday opposing National new Youth Minimum Wage.

Surely if it is discriminatory to oppose youth wages then it is likewise discriminatory to subsidise their public transport fares.

Can’t have it both ways Trev.

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.
