Spinning and losing over crime stats

Recorded crimes are at their lowest for 24 years and crime has fallen in each of the past three years.

That’s good news for everyone – apart from Labour and their buddies.

The excellent work of Crusher Collins has been carried on by Anne Tolley – and it has clearly stung “Stupid Boy” Fa’afoi who has resorted to the usual lies and distortions

Fa’afoi thinks that being buddies with the Police Association and running his press releases past them will give him credibility. It won’t.

As for the Association – they really aren’t doing themselves any favours by insinuating that, actually, Labour should get the credit for the fall in crime.

 

“The clear downward trend began with the investment in police staff and resources we saw through the mid to late 2000s.”

 

Greg O’Connor is a decent guy, but goodness me this is blatant crap.

Thankfully, our travel blogger has provided an excellent graph, which shows exactly the opposite is true.

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.
