Can we have this here please?

The Coalition has announced extensive spending cuts mostly to green taliban causes and projects.

They are far cry from the scare mongering numbers of $90 billion of cuts that Kevin Rudd put about. On top of that his outright lies that the Liberals would cut to “hospitals and schools” have been exposed.

Much of the $6 billion in further savings announced today by the Coalition – other than the big cut in promised aid – strike me as cuts in waste. Why on earth were we throwing away such money? 

And what a surprise. Many of those cuts are of green programs:

A lot of those cuts actually leave us well ahead.

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.
