Government kicking cans down the road as they launch 39 reviews, groups & investigations in 5 months

The government stands accused of talking much, but doing much, much less.

When Bryce Edwards and John Campbell combine to boot you in the ass then you know that things are bad.

The government has announced plans for a review, a working group, an advisory group, or an investigation, every four days since it took power, despite having nine years in opposition to develop policies.

All they are doing is showing how unprepared they were for government and that their polices were not much more than some cheap bumper-sticker slogans that someone forgot to even put the glue on the back of.

The cost must be enormous for all these reviews, groups and investigations they are holding. When OIAs come back on the costs they will be further embarrassed.

The reality is that, after nine years on opposition, they had basically sat on their collective bums and just shouted slogans.

Twyford’s housing and transport plans will end in abject failure and Jones’ tree planting will become an embarrassment.

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.
