Vernon Small on the Green’s problem

Vernon Small has grasped the nub of the Green’s problem:

How embarrassing. That right under Russel Norman’s nose the partner of his executive assistant was organising a campaign to put stickers on National billboards up and down the country.

Norman has said he was disappointed that his EA did not tell him, though she had known for a couple of months, and that is bad enough.

But for a party that has painted itself as whiter than white it is completely at odds with its image as the clean party in the campaign; a party that does politics but does not play politics and steers away from dirty tricks.

OK, the ring leader Jolyon White was a Green member, but not an activist, and was working through his networks, not Green party ones, according to Norman.

But it is a dollar to a muesli bar that other Green members will have been involved.

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.
