If David Cunliffe wants to edge out David Parker for leadership Labour then he is going to have be a whole lot smarter.

He has written a post at Red Alert where he rabbits on about all sorts of bullshit that is probably true but no-one cares about. Instead he should talk in simple

“Are you better off now than you were under Labour?”

That is the kind of thing that gets cut through. Not some convoluted rubbish that puts even the most seasoned political junkie to sleep. Speak plain, speak simple another of Whaleoil’s Rules of Politics.

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.
