Labour splits becoming obvious

Splits are starting to widen in the Labour camp. Not all members are singing from the same songsheet and far from "not resonating" beyond the beltway it actually is.

Some people I know who do not "do" politics are actually now talking about how venal and corrupt our government has become.

Again this reminds me of the end of Muldoon. The parallels are simply amazing.

Fran O'Sullivan has become very cutting as well, perhaps even suggesting the Governor-General become involved. That could happen both ways, he could step in and dissolve parliament as it clearly constituted under false pretences or simply block "validating" legislation.

Ouch, that's cutting.

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.
