You can polish a turd Pinko

David Farrar famously described Don Brash’s successful take over attempt of ACT as a cluster f*ck. He was talking about the tactics that Don Brash used, he turned out to have mis-read the situation appallingly.

Today in the Herald he asserts that in the case of Darren Hughes he is trying to polish a turd. He assumes that it is difficult to do, if not impossible. He is wrong about that too. You can in fact polish a turd and Labour and Darren Hughes must have taken lessons from Mythbusters.

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.
