Typical, Labour thinks it knows best

After the Broadcasting Standards Authority ruled there was nothing wrong with John Key’s DJ debut the Labour party has come out against the decision. Once again they show Kiwi voters that they have lost none of the arrogance that saw them booted from office in 2008. Their Labour knows best attitude is still there:

Labour leader Phil Goff said he disagreed with the decision.

“The BSA did acknowledge political advantage would accrue to the Prime Minister from the programme, but did not breach the Act. Now I don’t think any New Zealander is under any illusion other than that it would be politically advantageous to the Prime Minister if for no other reason than when we received the news of the double downgrade during the programme, he didn’t have to answer any questions on it.”

The programme had given the Prime Minister a free hit where he could talk about his cat rather than uncomfortable economic issues.

“It was a one-hour free self-promotion for the Prime Minister. At the start of an election campaign you have to be fair to all political parties.”

Labour general secretary Chris Flatt said the party had not decided whether to appeal and were waiting for an Electoral Commission decision on the same issue.

I be a whole lot more sympathetic to labour if they could follow simple electoral laws themselves, but they can’t, so they should look in the dictionary between shit and syphilis in order to find sympathy.

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.
