Labour’s latest vote winning policy

Labour are copying National of 2002, reminding New Zealand’s political elite of what happens when you let decidedly average middle managers run strategy.

Compulsory School Sport is not going to capture the public’s imagination and win votes for Labour. It is a bit like National’s 2002 strategy which involved new policies being released right up until the last week of the election, with 72 released in total.

Compare Labour’s policies to Nationals very clear and effective billboards. Big important vote winning issues. Not compulsory sport in schools.

On the plus side this policy is the first that labour have released that doesn’t a have a billy or two in additional costs attached to it.

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.
