Green Taliban: Ban, tax, levy, inquiries turn into Green: Love NZ for election time

The Green Taliban certainly are the most cynical of them all.  All year they go on about banning this, repealing that, taxing something else, applying levies or other commercial disincentives.  They want to have everything that doesn’t go their way subjected to high level inquiries, and then they still can’t get their way they have used taxes to pay for a referendum and scared $1B of shareholder value from the pockets of people purchasing electricity shares.

But for the last 8 weeks of every election, these people turn into something else.  



The messages they send out is all about kids playing on a beach, or the beautiful forests and waterways.

The Green Party have no credibility here.   All they want to do is to tie an emotional link we have with our country to their party.

Effective but.

12% buy into it as they recycle their plastic bottles and have their first world guilt mitigated somewhat.

But weeks after the election, we’ll be back to ban, levy, tax and inquire.   The lakes, rivers and forests can be put back into the cupboard for another three years.


Butter wouldn’t melt in their mouths, would it?

Don’t worry.  They’ll be back to banning, taxing, levying and calling for inquiries before you know it.

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.
