Boag's Hitlist

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

I got a laugh out of this one. The Dom post has written an article comparing Helen’s wish for getting rid of the deadwood with Michelle Boag’s attempts as National Party president:

National’s purge claimed former cabinet ministers and even MPs in safe seats. It included John Luxton, Max Bradford, Warren Kyd, Doug Kidd, Brian Neeson, Annabel Young, Marie Hasler, Arthur Anae and Belinda Vernon. Others, such as Maurice Williamson and Clem Simich, were thought to be on Ms Boag’s list but outlasted her.

Note the last sentance in bold refering to Maurice Williamson. It’s ironic that he was on Boag’s hitlist, but it all backfired when Williamson was one of the leading lights behind her demise.

Be careful who you try to screw!

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.
