The Curious case of Rajen Prasad and Labour's hypocrisy

The media are now running Labour’s attack lines for them especially that Christine Rankin’s appointment was wantonly partisan and therefore a despicable act by a deeply corrupt government or something like that.

Clare Trevett is clearly not a student of history. If she was then she would have noted that  the first Families Commissioner was none other than Rajen Prasad. (She won’t be getting the top shelf stuff in teh blogmobile for sure.)

You know the same Rajen Prasad who is;

A career academic, Prasad was appointed by his mates in the Labour Party and proceeded to dump on the National Party from the position. Then he ditched his six figure salary for a high ranking on the Labour Party list and a seat in Parliament.

Now what is curious is that the media don’t or won’t look at these things and that Labour has all of a sudden a case of forgetfulness around their own political appointments.

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.
