Who is Labour's real leader?

After yesterday blogging here about the 17 Labour MP Defectors finally being revealed in parliament on Tuesday it was confirmed by Chris Carter that Trevor Mallard is one of his “17 Friends”.

Perhaps we should call them the “Secret 17″…or…”Secret 16 plus Trevor”

Now Labour will try and say that no one should believe Chris Carter, but that is what they said about his list of 17 people that were ready to topple Goff.

And I am sure that Chris Carter will now try and fob it off as a joke. But we all know the old saying “Many a true word is spoken in jest”.

Phil Goff is starting to lose total control of his MPs. His grip on the leadership is only for show now. Someone else is doing all they can to undermine him. Goff can’t even get his own stories straight or keep his own MPs in line.

Just the other day on Breakfast he was back peddling from statements that his MP’s (and himself) had said when they tried to say the Grapevine disease was due to the “cuts” in staff at MAF that National made.

It is time that Goff fell on his sword before he looks like a total jack-ass.

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.
