Labour’s Homewrecker in Tukituki Blames Government

The Labour Party’s home wrecker in Tukituki, Anna “Marge” Lorck is banging on about the government not doing enough for Havelock North following the gastro outbreak

The public health cost alone from the poisoning of our town water supply is more than $1 million, but this Government has refused to help cover the gastro cost to our Hawke’s Bay District Health Board.

So much for backing the Bay.

It’s a mean Government that washes its hands of helping our region recover. Both the chairman and the chief executive of our HB DHB have publicly expressed disappointment at this decision, despite last month being hopeful of support.

Has Annette King explained to her protege how health funding works? The DHBs have money available for disaster management, and the HBDHB is one of the best run DHBs in the country with an excellent Chief Executive who sources say has planned well for this kind of event.

So Marge’s solution is a bit like Hans Blix’s.

We need to get the Minister of Health to review this decision. A joint letter from all our region’s mayors, despite one’s political ambitions, would help, along with other elected and community leaders coming on board. An open public letter would add significant pressure.

Can’t you mention your opponent’s name Marge?

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.
