Labour in the UK are not entirely isolated

Ed Balls and Milliband Minor have a soul mate in Phil Goff. Goff is making no effort at all to cut the deficit and in fact has a lot of unfunded promises that will take it higher.

Shadow chancellor Ed Balls has repeatedly used the US approach of cutting the deficit gradually to argue the Coalition is moving too fast and taking a reckless gamble with the economy. But on Thursday Obama unveiled plans to cut the US’s $1.65 trillion (£1 trillion) deficit over four years, a faster rate than Britain.

“It reinforces the point that Labour are entirely isolated in the international community,” Mr Osborne said on the fringes of the International Monetary Fund’s spring meeting in Washington. “That has left them in no-man’s land.”

Even Barrack Obama is grappling with cutting the deficit but Phil Goff has not even talked about deficit reduction. Labour in the UK are not entirely isolated, they have Phil Goff for a friend.

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.
