No wonder the Greens are losing votes – Troughing Exposed

Via the tip-line

“I did not vote for the Green Party to have them advocate for the social justice and equality and then swan off and drink $120 bottles of syrah. And it makes no difference to me at all that the Party didn’t pay/they were guests/[insert ludicrous-attempt-at-mitigation-here]. If they actually had a) a back bone between them or b) the conscience I voted for, then they would have settled for a perfectly lovely $40 bottle and asked for the balance to go to the Party, or a community garden or a Decile 1 school…”

Well, well, well, even committed Green Taliban followers are starting to revolt.

While on TV Green Taliban MPs talk the talk, in private they’re loshing it up on $120 bottles of wine and “twice cooked Raukumara vension loins” or “Spiced Harmony baby chicken & glazed chicken oysters”.

While the quality of the photo isn’t great, the Green Party Dinner menu on the 9th May 2013 at a sumptuous function hosted by KPMG (Clearly trying to lobby and smooze key Green movers and shakers) certainly shows that the Green Taliban sure know how to trough it up….especially when corporate lobbyists are footing the bill at the top end of town.

Kinda makes you wonder what the poor people are eating.

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.
