Hubbard fires salvo at Banks

Hubbard fires salvo at BanksAuckland mayor Dick Hubbard finally lost his cool yesterday, attacking aspirant John Banks.
In an uncharacteristic outburst, Hubbard told a public meeting: "John Banks is a silver-tongued, split-tongue, snake-oil salesman."

As I posted yesterday, Hubbard has well and truly jumped both feet into the personality politics game. You can't get much more personal than the comment above.

Sadly for him it is going to be a short lived game. Playing word games when you talk like Hubbard is always going to be a loser especially against an eloquently spoken man like Banksie.

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.
