Is Labour covering up its homophobia?

This morning both David Farrar and I blogged about the quiet launch of Labour’s Rainbow policy.

No Right Turn is scathing of the issues highlighted by David Farrar:

This is simply gutless. Labour needs to own its shit, recognise that eliminating homophobia begins at home, and start by eliminating its bigots. Their failure to do so undermines their credibility, and their entire policy. After all, how can politicians prohibit homophobia in schools, when they allow it amongst themselves? How can we say “its not OK”, when Labour pretty obviously still thinks it is?

After initially covering up Labour’s latent homophobia Grant Robertson now has had to confront the issue now that the mainstream media have picked up the story.

Charles Chauvel and his proxy John Pagani smell a bit of conspiracy though…they think this has all come about because they think David Farrar thinks that Peter Dunne is polling behind Chauvel in Ohariu.

Chauvel believes he is the focus of personal attacks and ”dirty politics” because internal polling shows him ahead in the ahead in the Ohariu electorate.

Oh and also because Charles is a gay mincer and we are all out to get him. The reality has escaped them so I will outline it for them. Charles Chauvel is getting what he deserves for being a spineless, self promoting, tosser of mediocre abilities, not because he is gay.

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.
