Broke or Ignored?

Labour aren’t having a campaign launch:

The Labour Party has broken from tradition by deciding not to have an official campaign launch this year.

It will instead mark the start of its campaign in a low-key way – with a policy announcement on savings to media tomorrow in its own caucus room.

The decision not to have a launch event is unusual – the events are considered to provide valuable media and television coverage of a leader speaking to an audience of supporters in the lead up to the election.

Is Labour trying to hide their inept and ineffectual leader? For a man who would pretend he wants to be Prime Minister it’s amazing he won;t even have a campaign launch. So on a day when Labour should have been focussing on the economy instead the media are talking about how tits they are at not having a campaign launch.

But no matter the spin is:

Labour is running a campaign based on policy and the team and not trying to create some sort of personality cult.

How refreshing.

Oh my, she has been gone a scant three years and already they have forgotten the Dear Leader.

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.
