El Jefe pressure mounting

Philip "El Jefe" Field is getting more heat than he or the Prime minister ever envisaged.

In parliament the death by a thousand cuts continue at question time with various ministers looking more and more silly as the questions mount.

Now two media organisations are adding their knives to the cut-fest. The Herald has revealed additional information and TVNZ has a show planned for Sunday.

That millstone around Clark's neck is getting very heavy.

Added to that the caucus is clearly splitting now. Local Manukau East MP Ross Robertson, facing an internal challenge by Ashraf Choudary who has set up in his electorate, is the first to break ranks and effectively cast serious doubt on the already maligned integrity of Philip "El Jefe" Field.

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.
