But hang on Tamati, didn’t you advocate for a sugar tax?

Tamati Coffey, Labour candidate for Rotorua, has written a lot on a sugar tax and uses the hashtag #‎forahealthiernz‬ as he goes on his anti-sugar crusade. He even endorses the “Water Challenge” where you drink only water for the month of April.


However, like all control-freak socialists, he is also a massive hypocrite.

This does not stop him from selling 100% sugar candy floss at Waiariki’s O-Week and owning an inner-city bar, which the dangers of alcohol aside, services sugar-filled cocktails and other brews.


I don’t think he realises how hard this makes it for people to take him seriously?

Does anyone take him seriously? I know Todd McClay doesn’t.

At least Coffey leaves a massive trail of his hypocrisy and embarrassing moments all over Twitter and Facebook.

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.
