Politicising disaster

It had to be the Green taliban that would jump onboard first at politicising the earthquake in Wellington. Of course it would be Gareth Hughes too.

No evidence is produced that earthquakes have resulted in oil spills anywhere in the world…yet they just launch forth with this disaster porn masquerading as concern.



The sanctimony of these pricks is lost on them however. One commenter in the thread points it out rather clearly.

Your argument will be much more valid the day you stop driving your car, using public transport, airlines, anything containing, made of or stored in plastics and stop purchasing anything that wasn’t transported to you or the place you bought if from on anything more complicated than a horse drawn cart. Until this happens, you also have a dependency on the oil you’re trying to prevent from being drilled. You just don’t like it that we have used up supplies drilled from foreign countries and are now having to look closer to home to find it.

Another commenter adds;

show me the last oil spill caused from an earthquake……all you guys do is run a campaign of fear, based on nothing. Shame so many of the muppets that follow you don’t think for themselves and follow blindly….

I can’t hardly wait for them and labour to start posting their disaster tourist photos later today. Chris Hipkins has already indicated via Twitter he is on his way.

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.
