Does Labour think the OIA is only available to them?

A newspaper published this on page 19 in the business section today.


Labour of course deluge government departments with their own OIA requests.  

Perhaps they forget that it is the law, and we as citizens are allowed to make such requests, it was why the law was set up after all.

But you don’t have to look far to see the inane requests made by Labour supporters under the same law. I did a Google search of “ cameron slater” in order to see how the unhinged try to ask questions under the OIA.

These will be Labour supporters deluging government departments asking for personal information about me and attempting to get me investigated by Work and Income, IRD, the Ombudsmen and anyone else they can think of.

If Labour wants to point the finger at wasting resources through asking legitimate questions then they need to have the finger pointed right back at them for the actions of their own supporters. It does give you some idea of what I have to put up with simply for daring to have a different political viewpoint from these people.

If anyone is performing dirty politics it is the left wing.

I can see their plan though. Next thing is it will be a waste of taxpayer resources and so the OIA process should be scrapped, just in time for them to take the reins of power.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
