Winston losing support

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Winston even seems to be losing support from within his own caucus. The Press reports on that lack of support for the party hopping legislation he wants to see bought back.

This is because he knows his Winston-First MPs will become even more disgruntled at his me-myself-and-I mentality as the term goes on.

I have no doubt that as this parliamentary terms goes on, a few MPs will jump ship to either Labour or National. They’re doomed if they do, and doomed if they don’t, so they might as well be their own men and attempt to make a difference in an area of interest.

After all, they’ve got nothing to lose and, if we look at Tau Henare as an example, he is now set as a National MP for the next decade if he wants, and will probably be back in Cabinet in the future.

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.
