Labour spits on Anzac Day


I agree with Amy.  Anzac Day should never have been included into the Mondayisation Bill.

The mere idea that people think it’s just a holiday is already bad enough.  But to legislate for an additional day of to “celebrate” Anzac Day is just absurd.

We don’t “celebrate” Anzac Day.

Anzac Day is about honouring those that made the ultimate sacrifice.  To stop, just for a few hours in our busy lives and reflect on what it took for us to have the freedoms we take for granted today.

Anzac Day isn’t just about World War I and World War II.  It isn’t history.  Anzac Day is a current, living breathing occasion with veterans from Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and other theatres.

To turn it into a holiday by means of legislation shows a complete lack of understanding at best, and a nasty undermining of a most solemn tradition at worst.

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.
