Labour’s leadership battle

The tipline is running very hot with all sorts of information about the various factions inside labour and the battles, loyalties and muck-raking going on.

Already David Cunliffe is moaning about muck-raking:

“I think there might have been a little bit of spiking of the guns by someone, I’m not accusing my colleagues here, but people put tags around for their own reasons and I’m not going to responding in kind to that.

“I know that I’ve got lots of good relationships and I’ve built a really, really strong team in my own electorate, and I think that speaks for itself.”

He really should go have a chat to Annette King and with Goff’s staffers about that, they are spending a lot of time besmirching Cunliffe’s good name to anyone who will listen. I think it is retribution for their perception that Cunliffe set up Goff in the now infamous “Show me the Money” debate.

Keep sending in the tips. It takes time to sort through them all and verify and cross check but I will get to them.

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.
