Goff has a shocker in Hastings

Phil Goff is in serious trouble…he can’t fill a phone box.

Things weren’t looking bright for Phil Goff as he took Labour’s campaign to Hawkes Bay today – the Labour leader has problems with his potential coalition partners.

Winston Peters has ruled him out, and the Greens are now openly out to steal his votes.

Mr Goff was out to attract voters young and old today, following a kindergarten visit with a Grey Power meeting.

Thirty-one people turned up to see him speak at the Hastings meeting, summing up the problem for Mr Goff – Labour has fired most of its policy shots and spent its money for its promises, but halls are still half-empty just 17 days before the election.

Mr Peters recently drew 300 people at the same venue, but while voters might be keen almost every party has ruled him out – except for Mr Goff.

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.
