Pagani knifes Labour

John Pagani, it turns out, is an astute observer of politics worldwide. I have been watching some of his posts about the American run-offs and he pretty much nails it.

Yesterday he posted about how Romney deals to Perry. He uses this quote from Mitt Romney’s website:

“Rick Perry has spent his entire career in political office, and has no experience in the real world economy. America is facing a jobs crisis with unemployment above 9% and millions of Americans out of work. Our nation needs an economic turnaround led by Mitt Romney, who has spent his life in the private sector and knows how jobs are created, and why they are lost. Career politicians got us into this mess, and they won’t help us get out of it.”

Now of course the other thing John Pagani has done, is subtly stick the knife into Labour. I mean is there any other party with so many career politicians at the top of the team?

Phil Goff, Annette King, Trevor Mallard, Parekura Horomia, Ruth Dyson, Maryan Street, Grant Robertson etc, etc

Pagani is right, “Career politicians got us into this mess, and they won’t help us get out of it.” Not Phil Goff, not Annette King,  not anyone from the current crop of Labour who are career politicians.

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.
