H/T:  Andrew Sullivan

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.

Labour is commited to economic sabotage, here is another example

Damien O’Connor wants to know what deals New Zealand has made “with the Chinese”.

My first reaction was:  “Here we go again”.  First “Chinese” can’t buy farms here, and now Labour are having another go at our largest trading partner by wanting to know “The Deals”.
