Comment of the Day


For today, I am designating the number 27 as the number of shame.

27 being the number of members of our House of Representatives voted against the recent anti terrorism bill, and thus sought to play politics with a bill to address one of the most fundamental responsibilities of any government, that being the security of that country’s citizens.

No piece of legislation will ever be a magic bullet against the tragedy we have seen unfold in Sydney, but in my opinion, those 27 members have failed to act in the best interests of all people in this country, and I hope this causes long reflections on the conscience of those 27.


The above party leaders, three Maori and an Australian, voted against New Zealand’s Anti Terrorism Bill.

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.
