Trust us we are politicians

As Labour starts their electoral rort of MMP in order to get Louisa Wall into parliament we are going to hear lots from their apologists and politicians explaining that what they are doing is just a quirk of the system, and that we can reform MMP.

Essentially they are saying that they are politicians and we should trust them.

Well they are wrong. The whole premise behind MMP was to give more power to the voters. Systematically successive governments ignored the people and they used MMP to do it.

The best and only way to reform MMP is to remove it.

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.
