The considered opinion of Mr George

Garth George is usually very considered even when he is grumpy.

Today he comments on the new leaders of National.

[quote]Mr Key and Mr English have a lot going for them. They are not academics, they have never been school teachers, they are not lawyers, they are not theoretical economists, I doubt that either has ever been a union member and they are only in their 40s.

They are men who have made their own way in life – Mr Key in particular – and know what it means to take personal responsibility and to work hard in order to reap life's rewards.

They are intelligent, too – equals of their Labour opposite numbers whose intelligence is unquestioned.

They are both family men, married with children – Mr and Dr English have six, Mr and Mrs Key two – and understand that the family unit remains the fundamental, indispensable building block of society.[/quote]

I can hear the lefty toadies and lickspittles knees slamming together in fear.  Labour will be shown up for the useless bunch of failed teachers, academics and lawyers that they are.

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.
