The Huddle at 1740


I will be on Larry Williams show The Huddle with Josie Pagani for the last time this year.

Our topics may include:

The Avatar film deal ongoing incentives programme announced this morning to put a shot in the arm of a very very lacklustre film industry. The government is caught between a rock and a hard place here. The liberal elites arts bludgers always have their hands out for more like a proverbial modern day Oliver Twist, and on the other hand when the government hands out the corporate welfare to billionaires the same moaners from the left who decry that not enough is spent will now cry that John Key is helping out his rich mates again. You know my position…bludging is bludging, no matter the clothes you wear. 

There there is Len’s pathetic apology to the council. He should be resigning not apologising. He’s still lied and used council money to pay for his texting to his mistress as well as used free hotel rooms at Sky City – all the while changing his stance on the convention centre deal, not to mention his use of the chauffeur driven car to run his floosie all over town. He’s not fronting to the media or any public outings – how long can he survive? He is a lame duck mayor.

And last but not least the asset sales referendum. Not a resounding success for Labour and the Greens. They certainly didn’t manage to win over those who weren’t already converted and the numbers weren’t any different from the election. Turn out wasn’t flash either. You do have to wonder what the point was in persevering with the vote anyway, other than building their email databases for fundraising and spamming political messages.

You can listen online via iHeartRadio or usual methods.

I will post the audio in the morning.

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.
