Warning – Labour loon running amok

Here we have Labour loon Ben Clark, brother of David Clark and a former Labour candidate himself promise to bring in massive regulation of the retailer power companies.

That’s right, competitive retailer/generator power companies would be regulated – not just the monopoly lines companies like Vector, but those who operate in a competitive environment as well with different customers, business models and energy sources.

“If Labour comes out and advocates heavy regulation on power companies it will certainly depress the price.  Ideally down to a level that National decide to scrap the idea, but that’s unlikely.  So hopefully at least down to a level that we can buy them back piece-by-piece over time.” 

This is called scorched earth. It’s also massively destructive, and would probably cause a collapse of foreign investment in NZ. Wealth would be catastrophically destroyed as New Zealanders would put their money overseas too.

You might expect this kind of nonsense from one of the rabid Socialist Aotearoa nutters. Funny hearing it from a privileged private school kid though.

Add in the green taliban to the equation and you get some idea why all the polls save Fairfax are roasting Labour right now.

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.
