Is Nick Smith Telling the Truth about the Dodgy Socialist Dam?

Nick Smith needs to stand up and tell the truth about what happened in the two days between DoCs draft submission on the dodgy socialist dam in Hawkes Bay and DoC tanking their submission.

Did he tell DoC not to proceed with their submission or did he not?

And is a nod as a good as a wink? Or did Nick leave an audit trail? 

And did he lie about whether he knew about the submission?

Last week Dr Smith initially told reporters that he did not know of the existence of the submission, saying: “There was no mention to me of a draft submission.

“However, minutes of the meeting later emerged and said he had been given a short briefing.

If he has lied in the house about this he will be up in front of the privileges committee for misleading the house.

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.
