Phil Goff: Lifesaver

posted on Friday about Raymond Huo’s seemingly extraordinary claim that Phil Goff had been busy saving lives in Christchurch, and quickly found evidence to prove Ray was right.

Labour List MP Ray­mond Huo blogged at Red Alert:

Other con­stituents told me that when encoun­tered with a nat­ural dis­as­ter “Key is talk­ing about how to save lives while Goff is going there to save lives”.

After combing through the archives, I’ve been finding other examples of Phil’s selfless bravery.

Here’s a news story crediting him with saving lives at the Hindenburg disaster.

Goff is taking Kris Fa’afoi’s wise advice again, and it’s clear that Phil’s undiscovered track record as a lifesaver is Labour’s secret weapon for this election 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.  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.
