Matt McCarten Channels the Whale

One of the really effective campaigners on the left agrees with this blog and what Labour should be doing. A half decent operator would have the National Party’s collective goolies in the mangle and winding up the pressure. New Zealand’s economy is rooted, and the men in charge, Bill English and John Key have not been put under any pressure.

If Labour was doing an effective job, Key and his ministers would be under pressure to explain why we borrow billions to cover up the fact there is no economic plan. They would rather put the boot into the 350,000 Kiwis on benefits who are expected to compete for the 20,000 mostly minimal-waged jobs on offer.

Any fool can see it’s not the people on benefits who are to blame but this useless Government, which hasn’t got a single decent idea on creating employment.

It really beggars belief that Phil Goff and his staff have been so inept they haven’t managed to hang the lack of job creation on National. National are like a house of cards, kept up in the polls due to the popularity of the leader, not the competence of the administration.

If Labour want to win back power they need a new leader, a president who is full time and fills the coffers for the campaign, and someone like Matt or Conor Roberts running the campaign.

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.
