Be careful what you wish for Phil

Phil Goff said yesterday that basically because the cup of tea incident was political and in public that the details of an illegally recorded meeting should be made public.

That is an interesting qualification. In April Labour’s entire website was open to the public. I still have their database, their credit card transactions, their mailing lists, their illegally gathered emails from ECE postcards and their membership lists. It was public, open to the world.

Given Phil Goff’s new stance that anything public and anything political should be open and transparent I could easily release that information. He could hardly complain could he.

Be careful what you wish for Phil.

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.
