Hughes drops Labour in the poop

On Morning Report this morning after 7.45 Gerry Brownlee dealt to Darren Hughes, it was all pretty mundane but Gerry managed to get Hughes to talk too much.

Hughes reckoned that the fliers asking if people wanted the Labour propaganda were delivered free by his committed team of volunteers. A very dopey statement indeed, when trying to draw a line between campaigning and government literature.

So get this right, Labour Party functionaries hand delivered fliers for free on behalf of Parliamentary Services and it wasn’t campaigning!!!!!

I see a Tui ad coming up.

I agree with DPF this sort of material should be banned in the 90 days before the election. The only things MP’s should be advertising are the office details of their electorate office and those ads should be in grayscale.

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.
