Blam! Blam!

The gayest press release ever has a sting. This definitely makes it the gayest press release ever, ever. Oh and why wasn’t Goff there, has Labour given up on Maori?

Phil Goff shoots his feet offOops. Phil Goff issues a statement claiming “the usually media-friendly” Prime Minister seems to have disappeared off the political radar in the past few days. “What could possibly be the reason behind this strange disappearance?” the Labour leader asks with a measure of sarcasm. Well, one reason was John Key paying his respects to the late mother of one of Goff’s MPs. Key held formal press conferences on Monday and Tuesday, plus the usual pre-caucus meeting media scrum on Tuesday morning. On Wednesday – a day he usually spends in Wellington when Parliament is sitting – he flew to Hamilton for the tangi of Lady Raiha Mahuta, widow of one-time Tainui leader Sir Robert Mahuta and mother of Labour’s Nanaia Mahuta. Key’s flight back to the capital was cancelled because of Wellington’s winds, thus preventing him from attending that afternoon’s sitting of Parliament.

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.
