NZFisrt President Quits

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Looks like its the day to announce high-profile retirements. NZ First founding President Doug Wollerton is quiting the post in frustration at Winstons dealmaking. At least somebody has principle in that party.

In the same article it states that Winston could be taking the position of Foreign Minister in a Labour-led Government. I actually though we needed better international relations – not worse!

Oh well, at least taking a cabinet posting should kill the whole party like it almost did in ’99

It is the third blow that has been dealt to Mr Peters in the wake of the 2005 election: he almost halved his caucus from 13 to seven MPs; lost his Tauranga seat; and now has lost his founding president, who left National with Mr Peters in 1993 to establish a new party

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.
