Why did you pull out then Phil?

A big song and dance was made about the TV3 Leaders debate because first John Key and then Phil Goff pulled out of participation.

Personally I don’t have a problem with the decision. What I do have a problem with is rank hypocrisy.

…from who else, Phil Goff. He has signed up to the Facebook Group demanding that the Leaders debate has all party leaders.

You really have to wonder about the ethics of this guy. He can’t hold a postion for longer than a day. In this case he is saying that the Leaders debates must include all leaders, yet when asked to participate he threw his toys and bailed out in a case of follow the leader.

The man is an embarrassment. He should start a Chuckle Brothers chapter, he’s be a life member.

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.
