Another failed Labour party stunt

After their manufactured manufacturing crisis, it comes as no surprise that yet another of Labour’s media stunts is backfiring.

In the same way you don’t hear Labour banging on about ‘the manufacturing crisis’ any more, you don’t hear David Shearer banging on about the number of Kiwis going to Australia anymore

And why is that?

In the year to the end of April New Zealand has seen a net migration gain of almost 4800 people, a two-year high, as more people arrive to live here long term than leave the country permanently. 

A year ago, New Zealand suffered an annual net loss of 4000 people. The turnaround has been much faster than some economists expected, as the numbers arriving from Australia raced up compared with a year ago, while numbers crossing the other way fell sharply.

The number of people leaving for Australia in April was down 23 per cent on the same month last year.

The single biggest threat to this trend would be the election of a Green/Labour Government.

If that happens, there’ll be long lines at the airline ticket counters.

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.
