A foolish man builds his house upon the sand

Gilmore - Houses Built On Sand

So Aaron Gilmore is issuing threats…big deal…there is plenty more on him should he decide to go nuclear.

Like his sudden re-writing of history or deletion in this case

It was early August and freezing cold as that night we didn’t have enough money to put into the meter for electricity. We had some light from large candles on the table and my grandmother and I were having Weetbix for dinner. The next morning we couldn’t afford breakfast and I went hungry till a teacher bought me lunch.

Why delete it? Is it because it wasn’t true?

It would be very unusual for Aaron to have had a pre-pay meter when he was growing up…  he could explain this too?

NOTE: Prepay electricity meters are uncommon in NZ: In Australia and New Zealand, along with the majority of other countries, penetration has limped along at about 2 or 3% of the installed meter base. Thus far, the barriers to uptake have been significant.

The guy is a serial bullshitter, in fact he is our little dickhead.

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.
