Rena doesn’t affect polls

Labour and the Greens mercilessly milked the Rena disaster for all it was worth but the voters saw through their disaster tourism:

…when asked if the Rena salvage and cleanup would influence who they gave their vote to at the election, 55.3 per cent of those questioned said no, while just 24 per cent said yes.

Among those who thought the Government had responded badly, 16.6 per cent were intending to vote National.

Various mouthpieces of the opposition all loudly cried that Rena was going to cause National to founder on their own electoral rocks, that hasn’t panned out.

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.
