That's good Helen, you keep thinking that

Helen Clark thinks it is the smacking debate and a little bit of mid-term blues that is causing their shellacking in the polls.

Good. I hope she keeps thinking that way.

Clearly Labour thinks it has a little bit of a cold when in fact they have terminal case Avian Flu.

John Armstrong has an opinion on their problems as well.

[quote]To put it bluntly, Labour has only eight months to close the yawning polls gap which has opened between it and National.


If Labour is still trailing by even half as much by next February – when election-year politics begin in earnest – it will probably be too late.


Precedent suggests that if National's lead is entrenched at around 10 percentage points by then, it will be almost impossible for Labour to haul it back.[/quote]

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.
