Please, please let it be Cunliffe

Some in the media are talking up David Cunliffe. He is described as charismatic:

A leading political commentator says Labour leadership candidate David Cunliffe is the most appealing candidate “amongst the public”, and the party would be better off moving away from “Phil Goff clones”.

Political commentator Bryce Edwards told TV3’s Firstline today that Mr Cunliffe would be a better public choice.

“Amongst the public he’s the most appealing. He’s kind of charismatic – I think he’s quite a competent leader.”

Yep he is, and here is a good example of his charisma at work. I can’t wait watching him trying to “stop the greasy little fulla in the blue suit”.

I note too that Cunliffe says he is friends with Mana. Phil Goff of course ruled out working with Hone Harawira.

He will stop the “rich fullas, the millionaires, the bankers, that give them lots of money” from getting their “free ride”. Yep please let it be David Cunliffe leading Labour.

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.
