Labour’s disrespect

Labour couldn’t catch a cold if it tried. Now their election ads are upsetting relatives of a famous Kiwi:

A relative of Sir Ernest Rutherford is objecting to his image being used in a Labour Party election campaign.

One of the party’s flyers states “Labour policies will put more money in your pocket” and has a $100 bill printed on one of its sides, complete with Sir Ernest’s picture.

The advertisement has upset the famous scientist’s great niece, Mary Rutherford, who said it was not right for the picture to be used in an election campaign.

“I don’t want a song and dance about it, I just thought it was quite inappropriate.”

Ms Rutherford said she had written to the Labour Party to request the flyer be withdrawn.

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.
