Labour’s future

Readers from around the country have pointed out that they in a massive change for Labour they actually have women candidates who arent afraid of being feminine and looking good. The old standard of looking like the offspring of Worzel Gummidge and one of the witches from MacBeth seems to no longer apply.

They could be just the people to bring middle New Zealand back to Labour if only the new leader can clean out the deadwood and the talentless self servers and members of the gaggle.

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.
