Policy not Personality, Ctd

Phil Goff promised us he would campaign on policy and not personality. He specifically said in their campaign ad against Asset Sales that November 26 isn’t a popularity contest.

Yet, since the moment he announced that he has done nothing but attack John Key. Ironically making liar of himself in the process.

Today is no different. Instead of focussing on policy like he promised he has gone on a personal attack over the government response to the MV Rena running aground:

“But instead of getting equipment and experts in straight away John Key and his colleagues waited five days. They wasted five days of good weather.

“We know what the Prime Minister was doing for much of that time. He was chasing cameras around the country during the Rugby World Cup,” Phil Goff said.

We all know what Phil Goff was doing, he was pretending to help scoop up oil in his shiny shoes at a fake photo opportunity. He also clearly hasn’t seen the polls published today:

Good to see that Labour and Phil Goff are really focussed on being the nasty party.

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.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
