David Lange Dies

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

David Lange has passed away, but first he made sure we all knew what his colleagues were like. He was the consumate politican and perhaps the only Labour person who could have tipped out Muldoon at the time. The only sad thinig is that he took the famous “cup of tea” instead of a stiff brandy.

Some of those colleagues are still in Parliament and I predict that they will shamelessly use Davids passing for disgusting Political gain even though he viewed them as a “terrible lot of people”.

Interestingly in his book a little know secret has been revealed about his anti-nuclear stance.

“In 1983, he became leader and quickly tried to change the party’s anti-nuclear policy. He supported the ban on nuclear-armed ships, but had little objection to visits by nuclear-powered vessels. This caused a ruckus in the party, and Lange had to back down. “

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.
