Something for Bridges to do, have a crack at the unions

Simon Bridges is a new minister, he needs things to do, here is an idea with which he can make himself useful:

Mr Springborg said he had launched a review to learn whether “these policies are about delivering for patients and workers, or if they are about delivering for union bosses and Labor”.

“I don’t think that’s right, people can join a union if they want, they shouldn’t be encouraged to join a union and we shouldn’t be having our staff [following] some sort of edict which was dreamt up by the Labor party and the unions,” he said. 

“Our managers are going out there and dragooning people into joining unions which then means we collect their union fees, give it to the unions and a lot of it finds its way back to the Labor party.

“It is some sort of elaborate taxpayer-funded money laundering exercise where the unions and the Labor party devised this policy in 2008-2009 to force our managers to actually encourage people to join unions.”

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.
