Top 10 election slogans rejected by Labour

1. Just tax it. [Too Honest]

2. I liked the flight so much I nationalised the company. [I prefer Qantas, because they still have business class]

3. Tax! Cackle! Pop![Mrs Peter Davis doesn’t really cackle, it is more of a shrill, shreik, so not accurate]

4. You’ve never had it so Smarmy. [Mrs Peter Davis is the focus of the campaign and Maharey doesn’t airbrush that well]

5. Do the crime, do a little time, get back into cabinet. [again the honesty issue]

6. Tough on success and the causes of success. [hard to define, voter don’t identify with it after 6 years of labour]

7. Not everyday people. [liars, cheats, drunks, speeders, forgers, fraudsters and thieves…mmm perhaps not]

8. Have a break, go on the dole. [stay there a while get sick then move to the sickness benefit thereby reducing unemployment]

9. Absolutely, positively, desperate to stay in Wellington. [theres that honesty thing again]

10. Taxpayer funded advertising: millions; extra spending in the budget:
billions; state funded media: priceless. [Do you think we got away with it?]

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.
