The knives are out.

The knives are out in the Labour caucus.

Particularly for the Maori MP's as the Maori Party makes in roads into Labour's support base.

List MP Mita Ririnui – who lost Waiariki to Te Ururoa Flavell in 2005 – is especially vulnerable and there may also be pressure on Te Tai Tonga MP Mahara Okeroa to stand aside as a constituency candidate.

This is going to cause major ructions in labour over the next few months.

DPF also reports on ructions at other parties as the wheels start to fall off the government.

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.
