A Labour member critiques Mahuta

On Nanaia Mahuta:

She is a uniquely and refreshingly Kiwi presence who is a sort of Princess in the Pie Shop.

and on her prospects:

She is a new light who deserves to do well. My only adverse comment is that she has swallowed too much public sectorese and social entrepreneurship gobbledegook. She should ditch terms like ‘pathways’, ‘wrap-arounds’ and ‘integrated case management’ in favour of telling the story in everyday terms.

Nanaia Mahuta isn’t a new light se was first elected in 1996 when Jim Bolger was Prime Minister, if we are using light analogies hers dimmed a long time ago.

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.
