Curran gets support from unlikely quarter

Clare Curran has won the support of Cactus Kate:

Over the past few days I have watched from a distance in horror at the left-wing turn on Clare Curran to the point she’s now issued the sort of apology that only a woman could be forced to make.

The post is utter bullshit. I hope she doesn’t mean a word of it.

Politics is a passionless sport at times. People selling out their souls and beliefs to appease and bow to supposed “supporters”.

Clare knows the real enemy and realises that the more votes to Labour’s real competitors the Greens and Maori Party, the less likely the “ones” are to be re-elected. Such as Stuart Nash, apparent superstar in the making Carmel SepuloniNanaia MahutaSue Moroney,Brendan BurnsClayton Cosgrove.

I have watched twitter and seen the posts by supposed left-wingers as they’ve turned on Curran’s passion for politics.

Cactus at her finest smacking down Lew and other assorted whiny-assed pinkos:

Lew from Kiwipolitico who wouldn’t be happy surrounded with free hookers and his pants down, the sarcastic uselessness of Danyl at Dim Post, the unsteady Eddie at the Stranded.

But the best lines of all are at the end:

What hurts the Labour Party the most are passionless, fly-by night supporters who have no soul. Who don’t back the very people like Clare who are sacrificing their own personal lives to actually advance their cause. If what she is saying in a 90 hour work week is a mistake, who gives a fuck? The real question is what their Leader is not saying in his 89 hour week.

It is never a mistake to show passion for anything that you do. You should never apologise for that. You should stand up and face your critics and challenges them to do better than you.

If Phil Goff showed as much passion for the Labour Party as Clare Curran, we wouldn’t be counting down his days left as Leader of 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. 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.
