Suddenly Labour is pretending it cares about Epsom.


For a number of reasons Epsom will get significant media attention this election.

And this is the cynical reason why Labour’s going with David ‘the Dunedin carpet-bagger’ Parker as a candidate. Of courser on a personal note for David it’s a whole lot easier with two girlfriends in Auckland to be based there. i’m starting to think that Parker should be called Mangrove now.

For Labour, it’s got absolutely nothing to do with representing the people of Epsom.  It’s about grandstanding in the media.

Grant, if Labour’s so deeply committed to its electorates, why isn’t the penis lolly boy from the Botany by-election running there again in November after he told them he cared so much about them?

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.
