Key plans to reward performers

Leader ready to consider newcomers if they perform well – 04 Aug 2007 – Political News – New Zealand Herald

Like all pragmatic businessmen John Key has signalled to his caucus that if they perform well they will do well and that tenure is not necessarily a guarantee of promotion.

This is excellent news and a position I have long held that politics should be no different from the real world where performance matters. This of course is in stark contrast to greying ranks of Labour’s caucus where not a one has ever had to really perform to get a position. Over there it is blind allegiance and toadying that gets you places.

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.
