Stick to killing cats Gareth

Gareth Morgan has found another cause to annoy everyone with…he should stick to killing cats, that was at least worthwhile.

With the furore over his cat campaign fading from memory, Gareth Morgan is about to try telling us what we should be eating.

Dr Morgan’s past activities have included confirming the cause of climate change, deciding which fish to catch and eat, proposing solutions for the country’s welfare and tax policies, and voyaging to the Antarctic to raise awareness about issues in the far south.

At the start of this year, he strode purposefully into his attack on the country’s cats, and will soon try to sort out the nation’s eating habits.

A book he co-wrote with economist Geoff Simmons is being promoted as “the most controversial book on food you will read”. Called Appetite for Destruction, it is to be published in October.

“We Kiwis are literally eating ourselves to death. In the move from cooking to convenience food we have given up control of what we eat,” Dr Morgan said on a webpage for the book.

“As a result our food is heavy on sugar, fat and salt, and light on the nutrients our body needs. This is causing a hidden health crisis that will swamp our hospitals just when the baby boomers want their hip operations.”  

Watch the trough feeding academics use this campaign as a way to further extract money from government so they can attack food and grocery companies. Like all socialist busybodies their solution is to tax the producer not the fat bastard that stuff their gobs with food.

The book will urge a tax on foods that don’t reach two stars for health and quality in a nutrition-profiling system to be agreed by health officials, industry and food standards authorities.

The tax would fund schools to teach healthy eating and the health sector to promote and encourage it.

Of course there is no disclosure in the article that Geoff Simmons works for the Morgan Foundation.

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
