Calum Penrose is one of the terrible ten who voted for the 9.9% rates rise, and now he is trying to say he and John Walker delivered the three laning of the Southern Motorway, and the improvements at Takanini Interchange.

We want to see proof that Penrose and Walker can actually make this claim. We want to see Cabinet Papers, Treasury Papers, Ministry of Transport papers or NZTA Papers showing that these two are justified in their claims. Otherwise it is a $268m fairy tale.

State Highway infrastructure is the responsibility of central government. Auckland Council hates roads and its councillors have spent years pleading for more money for Len Brown’s City Rail Link. Claims by Penrose and Walker that they are widening New Zealand’s State Highway network are desperate and deluded.

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.
