Using Trademe as a sounding board

I know a couple of senior MPs lurk on the Trademe message boards, reading and digesting what is being said. Yesterday I noticed that Clare Curran has taken that one step further and actively asking people for advice.

I guess after braving my site with a guest post she felt suitably trained for the bear pit of the Trademe message boards.

Clare Curran using the Trademe message boards for feedback

Nice to see that not everyone in Labour thinks Trevor’s latest great social media experiment isn’t so great. Refreshing too such honesty outside the caucus tent from a Labour MP.

The benefit of course of the Trademe message boards is you can usually get some very good advice.

Good advice for Clare Curran

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.
