Cam on The Cauldron at 16:00 on Newstalk ZB

Join Larry Williams, Josie Pagani, Barry Soper and some guy called Cam Slater on The Cauldron.

The format of the Cauldron may be different today, mostly because instead of commenting on political stories, I am the political story.   At this stage, it is expected that I will solo with Larry for the first half of the show.  Then I step back, and the rest of the team can comment on matters without me getting in the way.

This is the likely format, but it can still change. ¬†I’ll try and get Pete to update asap this if that’s the case.

Barry Soper locked out from last nights debate, and not at all happy about it

Last night a WOBH camera operator was in attendance at the farce of a debate in Helensville electorate.

He was able to capture the displeasure exhibited by NewstalkZB journalist Barry Soper as he sought entry to the hall.

Note that Patrick Gower seemed able to saunter through the rather aggressive door security.

Soper was undeterred and unleashed that little Rottweiler that still lives inside himself.

Eventually the PM’s handlers arranged to assist him through the door.

Cam on The Cauldron at 16:00 on Newstalk ZB – [UPDATED]

[UPDATE]
ZB tell me Cam is not going to feature on the Cauldron today. Cam told me he is. Apart from the foibles of trying to run a media organisation from my bedroom and control a Type-A personality that’s now probably in a Kava induced coma, let’s all get together and see what is actually going to happen – Pete
