The Cult of No-Personality

You have to laugh at a Labour party and a leader so desperate for relevance they ignore the previous 12 years of their party:

However Mr Goff told Radio New Zealand’s Morning Report programme the decision not to feature him “was recognition that I’m not into the cult of the personality”.

Yeah, so how about all those photoshopped images of Helen Clark, the ultimate politician who created a cult of personality.

More likely the decision to not feature Phil Goff was because of the internal focus groups that showed that even Labour voters hate Phil Goff and think John Key is the man.

Phil Goff has tried to remove personality from the campaign, mainly because he lacks one, instead however people now pick up on his photo absence and comment on the very opposite of what he and labour wanted.

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.
