One thing is certain, Labour’s capital gains tax went down like a cup of cold sick and National’s welfare changes are popular.

Phil Goff can’t win, Guyon Espiner describes his and Labour’s belief that they can win as “delusional”.

Labour are going to lose some good MPs while old tuskers remain warming seats postponing Labour’s much needed renewal for at least another cycle.

I might have lost a cycle race today but the results of distracting Labour’s campaign manager for 12 weeks are really showing through. Clearly training to beat a fat blogger was more important than running Labour’s campaign.

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.
