Hekia’s revolving staff door continues

Hekia Parata has had yet another staffer leave her office.

Captain Panic Pants is desperately trying to shut it all down but the tipline has provided me the details.

Parata’s senior private secretary Michael Warren has been given the arse card after just 2 weeks. 

I understand the Ministerial Services has paid him out at least until the end of December…but other sources suggest the pay out is more like 10 months…and a “slap” is involved in the sudden departure.

Parata really seems to have terrible bad luck with her staffing.

You’d think they could find someone who could stay in the office for more than a few months.

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.
