Why does Kelvin Davis behave so cowardly toward his people?

Having been silent and laying low over the real issue of Moko being beaten to death by his caregivers, he has found his voice again. Now the collective consciousness has moved on, up he pops with another prison crisis, this time it’s Corrections. This time, the dreadful crime of smokes being smuggled into prison by guards. Like that is anything new or newsworthy. Where does this guy get his life from?

Does he go to the cops with information for a prosecution? No he goes on TV and won’t reveal his sources, because, well you know none of these people in prisons would tell lies now, would they? Really Kelvin, is that the best you have to offer your people?

Wow, I’m so impressed. He only cares about his people once they committed the crimes, and then visits them in jail to get their stories to attempt to bash the government. He should hang his head in shame. My question to him is: Why don’t you give a toss about your people before they get to prison?

There is a lovely word in Te Reo: whakama. In translation it basically means to have lost face, to have no face. I am so glad I’m related to this guy as that is how I would feel at his actions. Ironically it was Genesis Potini (the Darkhorse guy) who taught me that over a game of chess to describe his depression.

The current MP for Te Tai Tokerau is starting to make Hone Harawera seem like an honest and caring person. Perhaps Hone should stand against him in 2017. At least Hone spoke up for more people than just the ones in prisons.

When he campaigned in 2014, there was all this talk about sexual violence in the North and how he wanted to do something about it. Seems these days he is more interested in the perpetrators than the victims.

I am confused and befuddled by the actions of this MP. What is the game behind the game here? Does he really expect the public of New Zealand to really care about prisoners getting expensive ciggies inside a prison to be more important than children being beaten to death by poor parents? Can someone please enlighten me?

I would like to know who owns this man and his actions. I think it is the public interest for some real journalists to ask some proper questions of him. Why would someone who was a principal who had principles now decides to check them in at the prison gate for a visit to criminals who seem to be more important than the people he now claims to represent.

The real irony here is that there are no votes to be had from inside the prisons and the rest of the population are glad that these people are inside them in the first place. I’m just waiting to hear when Davis has had a wee cuddle with Tony Robinson and tries to tell us he’s just a naughty boy.

Perhaps Key should ask Alan Duff to stand for this electorate as Davis and his precursor have let the Maori people down at a time when real leadership is so desperately needed.

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.
