Will he get 1000 votes?

John Minto is not popular. He works hard at not being popular. The good news is the people of Manukau East can tell him exactly how unpopular he is on 26th of November.

A popular, likeable guy like Matt McCarten with hard left views won only 849 votes in the Mana By Election. The unpopular John Minto running in a general election will do well to get as many as Matt did.

Maybe this will provide him with a reality check that shows that his dated rhetoric is not relevant today. Unfortunately he did not run years ago because his dated rhetoric has never been relevant to New Zealand.

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.
