Of course he has a mandate, he won

The whiners and whingers who have been sipping sour grape juice since Saturday night are trying to create the meme that John Key doesn’t have a mandate for asset sales.

Labour, the Greens, Mana and New Zealand First will all oppose any asset sales from Opposition despite National increasing its vote to 47.99 per cent – and some commentators have suggested National does not have a mandate.

John Key campaigned on the issue and won on the issue. He does have a mandate and he should get on with it. In fact why isn’t something sold already??

The green vandals that attacked National’s signs probably don’t realise that they have given National their new policies. Drill it, mine it, Sell it. Get on with with it.

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.
