Time for Cullen to go

Is it time for Cullen to go?

Audrey Young certainly thinks so.

[quote]The promise of 10 fresh faces on Labour's back bench after 2008 is not going to counter the one fresh face leading National.

A more likely answer for Helen Clark lies in her front bench and the perception of her party's leadership.

Hers is not in doubt. The party has almost complete faith in her. If anyone can drag them back into contention, it is her. She is unassailable.

Her deputy and Finance Minister, Michael Cullen, may not be.

His attitude to tax cuts may now be so deeply ingrained in voters' minds that he may be sacrificed – or he may sacrifice himself – before next year's Budget to someone such as Aucklanders Phil Goff or David Cunliffe with no tax baggage.[/quote]

When he goes he should take the wicked witch with him.

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.
