Who will National’s Coalition Partners be after the 2014 Election?

Tracy Watkins highlights the problems for ACT. The party has fallen apart. The party operations are dying, the candidates can’t get their messages straight and they can not be relied on to be a coalition partner after 2014.

Dr Brash’s leadership was supposed to haul the party back from the brink. Instead it looks increasingly like a party in its death throes.

Who is going to partner National if ACT are gone and United Future are gone and Pita Sharples and Tariana Turia retire? That’s why National is going to be natural party of opposition if they do not take a stand on the electoral reform referendum.

Labour and teh Greens along with their union buddies have registered to spend cash supporting MMP, not only that their MMPs are very vocal in support. National MPs meanwhile are under strict instruction to play Sgt. Shultz.

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.
