Headline of the Week

Talk about self-interest, you’d think with 8 houses and millions of dollars of taxpayers money over the years she would have got around to fixing her own teeth:

Former Prime Minister Helen Clark is making a plea to the Government to consider universal free dental care.  

This morning Clark praised the Revive a Smile dental charity for bringing a free mobile dental clinic to West Auckland. The charity aims to bring oral healthcare to low-income people in high-risk communities.

In a series of tweets, Clark said she was “very concerned” about people who cannot afford regular check-ups and end up with serious dental problems.

She added that access to dental care was not just a problem for beneficiaries.

“Time for a major government initiative on the right to dental care. NZ makes hospital care free – why not a right to dental care? Good for thought,” Clark said on Twitter, tagging Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Social Development Minister Carmel Sepuloni and Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters.

So the old bag is now a lobbyist?

Why can’t she just STFU and find a rock to crawl under somewhere.

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.
