A Quote for Posterity and a new political word

From Farrar’s now famously inaccurate post Ends and Means:

I have been somewhat surprised at how amateurish the attempted ACT coup has been. In fact, I’d go further and say it somewhat resembles a cluster fuck. I’ll explain where I think mistakes were made, and what I would have done differently.

An urgent meeting of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy has convened in the light of Don Brash taking over ACT, and David Farrar will no longer be allowed to be called Pinko, Manatee, Penguin or any other cutsie names he has earned over the last forty years. He will now only be known as “clusterf**k” or for the squeamish the approved alternative is “Clusterfarrar”

“Cluster Farrar” can also be used as a new word for the political lexicon to describe execrable political analysis.

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.
