Out comes the axe

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

The Labour Government will try to get rid of a swag of ageing list MPs during the next three years to rejuvenate itself before the next election.

Crassly, it is already using diplomatic posts as inducements. Jim Sutton has been offered Ottawa, Washington or Canberra so far he has resisted the call. Dover Samuels has been offered Niue (I don’t know if i would take that as a compliment or an insult).

No one has suggested that the Old man of the Labour goverment, Cullen, take an early retirement.

Mrs Peter Davis said she was looking for “exits with dignity” for long-serving MPs.

I wonder if that will mean the same sort of dignity that she gave Peter Doone.

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.
