Policy not personality, Ctd

Phil Goff is such an infantile prat,  no wonder he can’t crack double figures in the preferred Prime Minister’s stakes:

Phil GOFF
Labour Leader
04 November 2011 MEDIA STATEMENT
John Key is a monkey’s uncle

John Key’s continued attacks on Labour’s fiscal strategy are utterly embarrassing given that National has been exposed for having a $1 billion dollar hole in its own accounts, says Labour Leader Phil Goff.

“John Key, who said he was across National’s numbers, has clearly been using his Merrill Lynch calculator. He’s not only banked the proceeds from the asset sales, but he’s claiming he can also keep spending the dividends despite the fact they’ll be lost when the power companies are flogged off to foreigners.

“The National leader says he’ll be a ‘monkey’s uncle’ if our figures are right. Well I think he’s been shown up as a chump because our figures not only add up, but we’re being honest and upfront about them with Kiwis.

“John Key should give up the glib one-liners and focus on the issues that matter to New Zealanders.

“He’s spending so much time talking about Labour’s policies, it’s becoming increasingly clear he has no ideas of his own.”

I’d much rather John Key use his calculator, which made him $50 million, than the dodgy Greek calculator Phil Goff is using to create Labour’s dodgy figures.

Nice to see Labour is once again going against their promise to focus on policy rather than personality and proving that rather than debate issues they would rather fling infantile kindergarten sandpit names at the most popular Prime Minister since records began.

Labour went nasty in the first week of the campaign, they said they wouldn’t focus on personality, they lied, and last night we saw what the public thought about the nasty party. You have to wonder why they persist with the nasty, it’s clearly not working for them.

I wonder why Labour continues to ignore the advice coming from their focus groups?

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.
