Satire: Two inspiring social enterprises making a difference

Guest post:

In today’s series on local Wellington businesses making a difference, we talk to two social enterprises doing groundbreaking virtue signalling.

These two companies are remarkable as they employ refugees at the expense of ordinary citizens. It just goes to show how discrimination can work when put to a virtue-signalling cause du jour.

The Star Wars That I Used To Know


…spoof of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”, done Star Wars style, of course. It’s a story of heartbreak to which Star Wars fans everywhere can relate. And even with all that heart ache, it’s still a better love story than Twilight.

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.
