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.

Labour’s latest poll number starts with a two

I know I shouldn’t really blog about the latest Roy Morgan, I have explained why before.

But the left wing bloggers and the Labour party hold great store in the results of the Roy Morgan polls. They constantly say to look at the trend…and so we will.

The latest Roy Morgan poll is out and Labour’s number starts with a two.

Today’s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows a large rise in support for Prime Minister John Key’s National Party to 51% (up 4% since July 1-14, 2013). Support for Key’s Coalition partners has changed little with the Maori Party 1.5% (down 0.5%), ACT NZ 1% (up 0.5%) and United Future 0% (unchanged).

Support for Labour is 29% (down 2%); Greens are 10% (down 1.5%), New Zealand First 4% (down 0.5%), Mana Party 1% (down 0.5%), Conservative Party of NZ 1.5% (unchanged) and Others 1% (up 0.5%).

If a National Election were held now the latest NZ Roy Morgan Poll shows that the National-led Coalition parties would win easily.  Read more »

What a lovely family, so much class

The Harawira family are so lovely, what ever happened that visited them upon us all.

How can one family so lack in dignity and class. Feral is really the only suitable word to describe them.

Former anti-violence campaigner Hinewhare Harawira may be removed as a trustee at Waitangi after performing a traditional Maori insult where she mooned an elderly crowd on a marae.

Harawira, who stepped down in her role as an anti-violence campaigner after her three sons were charged and later jailed for a “horrendous” assault on a child, performed the whakapohane after “suffering abuse” during a tenant’s eviction.

She was appointed as a trustee to the Te Tii (Waitangi) B3 Trust on August 25, 2012, however, three other trustees took their attempts to have her removed to the Maori Land Court of New Zealand after the incident.

Trustees Hapeta Rameka, Billie Taituha and Joyce Baker objected to her appointment because of her “despicable behaviour”.  Read more »
