Labour in 2011 & National in 2002

There are remarkable similarities of between to the two campaigns. Bill English’s shockingly bad campaign in 2002 included 72 policies on all sorts of stuff that no one cared about, no real leadership with anyone who wanted to releasing policy and Bill doing some stupid photo ops like getting the shit beaten out of him in a boxing ring.

Fast forward to 2011 and the same thing is happening. Labour are releasing dumb policies on things like compulsory school sport, removing three strikes and rainbow policies, instead of talking about the things that matter like Jobs, Health and Education. This stupidity has been multiplied by not having a strong leader, with Phil Goff not even releasing policies, and now we have him doing stupid photo shoots too.

It looks like Phil is trying to beat Bill’s awful record.

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.
