Len’s Dream?

Len Brown and his pals at the council are intent on intensification and blocking people’s view shafts.

Could this be Len’s dream for a suburb near you, with a train, a bus and cycleway to get to it.

A man walks past newly built houses at Dadun village of Lingshui ethnic Li Autonomous County

Rows upon rows of ticky-tacky three-storey cottages have been erected in one of China’s most overcrowded counties of Lingshui. As many as 1,029 houses have been crammed on each only 253 square meters and are ready to accommodate their first residents. The Dadun Village, as it is called, can house over 3,500 people. 

I’d love to see how the Prince of Dark Arts in Len’s office is going to get together a “consensus group” to love this one up. Perhaps that is why his CV is being dusted off 6 months out from the election.

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.
