How rude is this?

Just after meeting Prince Charles, Helen decides to announce it is time for New Zealand to consider a republic.

Following a meeting with Prince Charles, former Prime Minister Helen Clark has renewed suggestions New Zealand will become a republic.

Clark met with the Prince of Wales, who is next in line to the throne, at Clarence House in London overnight (New Zealand time) to discuss sustainable development issues.

Clark is in her second term in charge of the United Nations Development Programme, while the prince heads a number of charitable organisations focused on environment and development issues. 

After their meeting, Clark said she had met with Prince Charles “many times” before and he was part of a royal family that included “very fine, committed servants”.

However, she said it would become increasingly “quaint” for New Zealand to have its head of state based elsewhere.

“My view has always been that at some point, New Zealand will become a republic because the longer we go on not having a head of state in New Zealand itself, it becomes more quaint, if you like,” she said.

Who the hell does she think she is? Hasn’t anyone told her she isn;t in charge anymore?

Now, ignore for a moment that Prince Charles is the main reason why a republic is palatable…how rude is this cow to go visit the heir to throne then spout on afterwards about how she would like to see us abandon the monarchy in favour of a republic?

Presumably she would be putting herself forward as President…I have always said I’d support a republic when two people are dead…those two people are Jim Bolger and Helen Clark.

Someone should tell Helen Clark to stfu and stick to meddling in other countries business and pretending to save the world.

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.
