Another sad record for Phil Goff

Phil Goff has a pretty sad list of achievements. Not only has he capped off his career with leading Labour to it’s worst ever result in elections since 1928 but it appears he is just the third Labour leader in history to fail to make it to Prime Minister.

The others were:

1 Harry Holland 1919–1933 16 June 1926 – 18 October 1928
8 October 1933–1933
Did not serve as PM
5 Arnold Nordmeyer 1963–1965 1963–1965 Did not serve as PM

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.
