Random Impertinent Questions for Simon Power

Why is he giving up the SOE minister’s role because it might create a perceived conflict of interest later on but not the Commerce Minister’s role?

Surely if there is a potential conflict with being the SOE Minister there is a similar conflict potentially remaining the Commerce Minister?

Surely he isn’t going to take a board position on an SOE while he is still an MP?

Isn’t it a bit rich taking a board position with an SOE when he has drawn a line through anyone remotely connected with the National Party for similar board appointments and preferred Labour aligned appointees instead?

Why does he look after our enemy’s friends instead of our own friends?

Why did he decided to push the S92a copyright amendments through under urgency?

Was he upset that he didn’t have enough media coverage after bashing up legal aid lawyers earlier in the day?

Is he about to do “a Maharey”? …just 4 more weeks and he can shuffle off quietly without needing a by-election.

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.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
