National – the natural party of opposition, ctd

The other day David Farrar blogged about the big money that the unions are throwing in supporting MMP. The Greens also had registered to spend money campaigning for MMP.

Then on the 26 August the Labour party was registered as a third party that is going to spend more than $12,000 promoting MMP.

Via the tipline I was sent in this photo of joint campaigning by Labour and the Campaign for MMP.

Make no mistake, the left wing are pulling out all stops to ensure that MMP is retained and meanwhile the party hierarchy of National are doing their level best to silence anyone who even mentions the referendum in National circles. This includes the General Manager, The President and the Campaign Manager who are busy throwing threats around. Ranting and cajoling elected office holders isn’t a good look. Internal party are alarmed at such inept handling of this, they are talking and I am listening.

News flash National, all your political enemies are conspiring to retain MMP and pouring lots of time, effort and money into it and some in National are even helping them. Silence is no longer an option, silence in 1993 on the issue is what got you 9 long years in opposition and silence is what will see your coalition partners disappear, and with it your chances of governing again for a very long time. Labour won’t remain inept forever, and your poll ratings won’t remain stellar forever.

It is time to find your voice.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
