Nikki Kaye gets sledged by Tracey Martin

Nikki Kaye cops a sledging from Tracey Martin on Facebook:

What the hell is going on Nikki Kaye ????

I contacted your offices last year about community funded swimming pools in closed schools being demolished without any notice to the communities?

Do you not think that rural communities deserve to be spoken to about the assets they fund raised for?  

How it is sensible to suggest that Iwi want a flat pile of dirt when there were solid buildings, recently upgraded fibre to the school, pool and tennis courts?

How much did this cost to destroy and who asked for it to be done. You are the Minister in charge Nikki, will you front up and enlighten us to the bigger plan?

This has only become usual practice since you became the Associate Minister with responsibility for school property??

She was talking about the removal of a rural school that featured on TVNZ last night.

I might have been sensible to locate a charter school there, but that won’t happen now the buildings have been levelled.

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.
