Would never happen here

The ALP is meeting at their conference this weekend in Sydney. Julia Gillard says some pretty good things about what she expects at the conference.

Anyone who joins a political party loves an argument. Sometimes those arguments get noisy, but that’s a healthy sign. A party able to hold robust debates is a party that’s full of energy and ideas. That’s why I’m looking forward to some noise being made in Sydney. A quiet conference would disappoint me because it would mean our party was lying dormant in the face of great challenges.

Labour in new Zealand could never entertain such mayhem, and national aren’t much better with stage managed and neutered conferences.

Let’s hope the two main parties take Julia Gillard’s advice on board next year int eh post election conferences. God know Labour needs some robust debate.

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.
