David Cameron’s Strategic Nous

In May of this year Britain had a referendum on their electoral system. David Cameron took a very strong role in the referendum as he knew that under AV (the equivalent of PV), the Conservative Party would face a political environment that was dominated by Labour & Liberal Democrat coalitions.

Cameron made a very, very public plea for voters to reject AV.

John Key is more popular than David Cameron ever has been, and his intervention in this referendum will ensure a second referendum and a voting system that will not work against National. Cameron’s strategic nous meant that AV was defeated and Britain has an electoral system that the Conservatives can win under.

John Key should give a press conference doing what David Cameron did. Give voters clear reasons to reject MMP and vote for SM.

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.
