Labour is the nasty party, Ctd

Labour continues to prove they are the nasty party. They have actually abandoned any semblance of rationality and Key Derangement Syndrome has set in.

For more than 6 years they have run smear campaigns, botched investigations into John Key’s background, told outright lies and attacked him for the way he speaks, the way he walks, the way he dresses.

It hasn’t been a good plan, for more than 6 years they have attacked John Key and he remains New Zealand’s most popular Prime Minister since records began.

Their own focus groups have been telling Labour for months if not years that attacks on him don’t work, that Labour voters in fact like John Key. Yet the “brains trust” of Labour’s campaign persists in the negative, they persist in the nasty and they persist in ignoring their focus groups and internal polling.

Tonight they launch a new phase in the attacks and focus on personality that Phil Goff promised not to focus on.

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.
