An offer from a reader, driving homeless to Hamilton

via the tipline


Re. the “streeties” issue in Hamilton.  Many years ago Orlando, Florida wanted to be known as a compassionate city when it
came to the homeless. Rush Limbaugh took them at their word and began organising buses to send New York’s homeless south.  He rightly  wanted to send them to a place where they’d be “appreciated”.  Of course Orlando chucked a tanty but the hypocrisy had been identified…they want to “care” for them but god forbid anymore should appear!   

Perhaps we could do the same with Hamilton.  I’d be happy to drive any homeless Aucklander south!

Anyone up for a convoy?

Might have to hire a bus though because I’m not too keen on having a piss-soaked derelict stinking up my car for an hour and a bit to get to Hamilton?

How many can there be to move? a couple of hundred at most surely…two buses?

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.
