The Leadership sharks are circling

After Phil Goff’s woeful performance in the weekend political shows, the Leadership sharks are certainly circling.

On Q & A today, Goff botched the Capital Gains tax numbers for the third time, couldn’t explain how that tax would work,  wouldn’t put a number on extra jobs created by his policies, and refused to say whether he trusted Winston Peters.

Little wonder Labour is going to be resorting to a negative attack-based campaign this last week – they want to keep Goff as far away from the media as they can.

Already the Leadership sharks are circling.  This weekend David Cunliffe and David Parker have hung Phil Goff out to dry over his problem with numbers.

Goff will clearly have another numbers problem within his own Caucus shortly after November 26.

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.
