McCarten going to stand in Mana

Matt McCarten has aannounced that he is going to stand in the Mana by-election.

This could create an upset. Union loyalists upset at the parachuting in of Kris Fa’afoi could easily chuck enough votes Matt’s way to make a big dent in Labour’s majority.

Will it be enough? Probably not.

Matt at least has true left wing credentials and for that reason alone the workers of Mana should support him. (No equivocating here with endorsements)

Meanwhile I’m not sure the Labour spin-weasels were thinking too hard with Kris Fa’afoi’s signs.

Working for Mana?

Working for Mana?

Doesn’t he have any Mana and is that why he is working for it?

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.
