A day on the hustings went awry for the leaders of both major parties – a reminder to the prime ministerial applicants that even the best-laid political plans can be disrupted.

Helen Clark was forced to cut short a speech and leave the podium when faced with an unexpectedly hostile student crowd in Christchurch.

She made a rapid exit after people in the 1500-strong crowd became increasingly hostile and drowned her out with boos and chants of “Don, Don, Don”.

Placards with derogatory comments about Helen Clark such as “Nice teeth” and “Speed kills and so do your looks Helen” were waved.

One student dressed as a pilot chanted through a loud speaker, “Paging passenger Helen Clark” in an attempt to mock her for the incident on an Air New Zealand flight two weeks ago.

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.
