More bad news for Labour and Clark. It seems that the spn about the effects of the smacking bill are just that, spin.

National            48.5%

Labour              34%

Greens              8.5%

Maori                 2%

Winston First      2.5%

ACT                  1%

United Future    1.5%

One wonders how long Labour and Clark can sustain such a walloping in the polls without something breaking. The irony is that Clark spent a considerable time getting herself in the paper, txting, shroud waving and ambulance chasing, it clearly has failed.

Labour has a history of nasty leadership coups when things go bad. Whilst she and Labour were in front, Clark was essentially bullet-proof, now her challengers are armed with teflon bullets making her bullet-proof vest redundant. They will fire wooner or later.

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.
