Had it with Pike River? You ain’t seen nothing yet

Winston Peters

Manned re-entry of the Pike River drift is now inevitable with the election result showing government is not possible without parties who have committed to manned re-entry of Pike River.

Sonya Rockhouse, who lost her son Ben in the disaster, says the result is great news. “Thanks to New Zealand First and all of the other parties who have backed our cause we will now finally get truth and justice. We’ll be making sure that any support Winston and other leaders need to get this done will be delivered.”

Bernie Monk, who lost his son Michael in the mine, says the argument for manned recovery of the drift is now won. “International experts have said it can be done, the people of New Zealand have seen how solid the drift is, now after seven long years we will finally have someone who will be critical to government who is determined to do the right thing.”

Anna Osborne, whose husband Milton was killed at Pike says the new Parliament confirms the majority for support of re-entry. “When we got the cross party commitment two months ago, we got a majority of MPs in support of getting our boys and the truth out of Pike. Tonight that majority has been strengthened.”

No good will come of this for anyone.  None at all.

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.
