Over my dead body

Simon Power has got a new job, now he will find out what it is like in the commercial world, but he leaves us with a warning:

“This is the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in my career. One of my objectives after leaving parliament is to contribute to the growth of New Zealand in the private sector and I feel that with my experience in working with and implementing change I can do that,” he said.

Mr Power’s March announcement that he would stand down from Parliament after the November 26 election came as a surprise to many, with Prime Minister John Key saying he was “stunned and flabbergasted”.

At the time, Mr Power said leadership was “not for me” but did not rule out a future return to politics.

I pity the poor bastards at Westpac Private Banking who have to work with this legend in his own mind.

I’m wondering though if Colin James will start waxing lyrical about investment opportunities at Westpac?

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.
