Custer's Last Stand

Hide's Last Stand

As expected from a man as cunning as a shithouse rat, Rodney has been working in his bunker to try to use the “Roy play” on Brash. Unfortunately for Rodney the bunker is leaking like a sieve because his loyal staffers know the writing is on the wall for Rodney and are worried about their future career prospects.

Like Rodney did to Heather Roy he is trying to come up with evidence to show he is not a weasel and has not mislead the media. Expect documents to be circulated showing Brash has lied. Media members shopped this story should ask for provenance of all documents,when they were created (from the meta tags) and whether his bunker has worked long hours creating something that did not exist until very recently.  The media should also ask if there is anyone other than Rodney that thinks he can hold Epsom and lift the party vote enough to give National backbone.

Rodney needs to be careful with any dodgy plays because the tipline is running so hot that it is practically on fire. This includes some information about his destruction of Heather Roy’s career that would not play out kindly for Rodney. He should remember carefully how he used me in that play.

In a continuation of the “Roy play”, Rodney is also contemplating a personal attack on Don based on his ethics. This would be a great play for Don because it would mean personal life was absolutely fair game, and I just absolutely love politicians dirty laundry being aired in public, just ask Stuart Nash and the new Mangrove Iain Lees-Galloway. Not a classical scholar, Rodney probably is unaware of William Congreve, but here are a couple of excellent quotes:

“O fie, miss, you must not kiss and tell.”

And the better known

“Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned,”

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.
