Little’s Mum still not convinced

Poor Andrew Little, pretending to be a local and now his Mum sounds like she won’t be voting for him:

When Mr Little announced he would contest New Plymouth’s seat as the Labour Party candidate, Mrs Little said she wrote a letter to Mr Young saying her political beliefs would fall on neutral ground this election.

But with only four days until New Zealanders head to the polling booths, Mrs Little said she still hasn’t decided whether she will vote.

“What am I to do? Obviously my loyalties lie with my son but my husband and I were always National Party supporters,” she said.

It was Mr Young who brought up Mrs Little’s dilemma at a National Party meet-the-candidates meeting in Okato yesterday.

“I was speaking with Mrs Little recently – she’s a National Party member you know – and I said to her that I understand her loyalties lie with her son but I’ll be rather peeved if I lose by one vote,” Mr Young said.

Pretty bad when you are living with her and you still can;t convince your dear old mum and your own leader won’t even visit the electorate.

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.
