Another taxpeyer funded Green stunt that wasn’t so cunning

So who paid for the Greens cardboard stunt – we did of course.

The Greens’ cardboard display cost around $3300 – $2150 for the materials and $1150 to book Aotea Square. A spokesman said it was funded from the party leaders’ office budget.

How many trees did they sacrifice?  What was the ink on the boxes made out of.  How did Metiria get to Auckland, in a plane using fuel?  Who paid for that?  

Instead of wasting money on another pointless stunt – the Greens could have donated it to their much-loved cleaners.  That would involve taking a principled approach – something the Greens talk about but never do.

My spies also took shots that show the Greens never really got the stunt working with the high winds in play yesterday in Aotea Square…probably all the spin from the mayors office.

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.
