Who am I voting for?

This election is relatively easy.

I live in Pakuranga. A vote for any other candidate other than Maurice Williamson is a waste of time. I have known Maurice since I was a kid when I used to go down to his apartment at the end of my street and play heavy metal music very loud until the neighbours pounded on the doors. He tried in vain to teach me maths in the 5th form.

As for my party vote: I will be voting for National. The last thing this country needs is inept fools like Phil Goff and trevor mallard back on the treasury benches. The last time Labour was the answer to anything was 1984 and 1987. Only a party vote for National ensures a John Key led government. If for no other reason than John Key sends the leftwing into apoplexy, party vote for National

Voting is important, it is the one chance every three years where everyone gets to have a say.

Don’t forget the referendum too.

I will be voting for change in the referendum, I hate MMP. I hate every three years having stupid “cup of tea” charades for media wankers to get their jollies. I hate that Winston Peters the most corrupting influence in New Zealand politics continues to enthrall the bewildered, the deluded and the media all because of MMP.

I encourage everyone to give MMP the boot and to vote for SM. The reason I say SM is that I don’t believe that any of the other systems could beat MMP in the next referendum. SM fixes the vast majority of the hated parts of MMP. Failed electorate candidates cannot sneak back in on the list and the tail is docked and wags a whole lot less.

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.
