Comment of the Day

These same people seem to be missing the point as well, a newspaper this morning has one on the front cover saying they feel abandoned by New Zealand. These are the same people that left New Zealand for another country, to live, work (well some of them) pay taxes, create a new life… apart from New Zealand. And now we are expected to protect them from their own stupidity?

He raises a good point, one that Kelvin Davis, the Media Party and other opposition politicians fail to grasp.

The people on Christmas Island who happen to be Kiwis are the same ones who are appealing their deportation to New Zealand on the basis they have no ties here, no family, and are for all intents and purposes Australians.

They left New Zealand, abandoned the country – for want of a better term – for a better life.  

Now that life has come to an end because of their criminal offending they want New Zealand, a country they abandoned, to stick up for them?

They can leave Christmas Island anytime, by consenting to deportation or alternatively leaving voluntarily before deportation. They choose to remain there because they are fighting Australian immigration…to stay in Australia.

John Key is right to ignore their plight, they haven’t shown any interest in living in New Zealand and contributing, and in fact have not contributed for most of their working life. It beggars belief that the Labour Party and Kelvin Davis would stick up for disloyal and criminal ratbags.

All the actions of Kelvin Davis are doing is reinforcing the view that Labour only cares for criminal classes, illegal immigrants and bludgers. Hard working, taxpayer Kiwis are ignored by Labour except for the taxes they want to take off them to give to bludgers.

The Media party needs to wake up, this isn’t a humanitarian issue, they are criminals and they are continuing to commit crimes. They don’t want to live in New Zealand, and frankly no one really wants them here either…except Labour and the assorted whingers on Twitter and left-wing blogs.

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.
