Michael Bassett stabs Labour

Michael Bassett describes Labour as a Government of Dead Ducks. His opinion piece is cutting and witty.

[quote] This Government is stuffed. Taxidermists and sycophants will continue to put a smiley face on it, and the National opposition could yet resurrect it, but Labour looks dead in the water. It's not just that the Cabinet is shambolic with weak ministers (including Michael Cullen) in trouble, and little backbench talent to replace them. The election margin was so fine, and the ultimate coalition outcome so unpredictable, that anything could happen, any time. [/quote]

Ouch, ouch, ouch.

The whole article is a superb and vitriolic attack on a government bereft of ideas.

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.
