Labour could learn from Labor

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Over in Australia Julia Gillard, who would one day like to lead the ALP, has outlined a new Labor vision that includes tax cuts, moving away from “welfarism” and encouraging a civil society.

Launching a book on the Labor Party, Ms Gillard urged her party to put the national interest ahead of sectional interests to become relevant to all Australians.

Well, well, well, three holes in the ground, A Labor politican who sees some sense.

For “those who aspire to move beyond welfare to work, a cut in tax is not just as good a way of increasing a breadwinner’s take-home pay as a rise in wages, it is a better way”, she said.

Good words that Labour in New Zealand would do well to heed.

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.
