Labour were broke, had to beg off Anderton

via the tipline

Andrew Little was so ineffective as President of the party that he failed to raise a single dollar for the party. He left Moira Coatsworth with an impossible task of finding nearly a million dollars to fund their campaign.

The unions snapped their wallets shut and it was only the last minute intervention of Jim Anderton that raised the cash to fund the campaign.

The last thing Labour wants right now is a couple of by-elections. They got spanked comprehensively in the election, they have no cash and Anderton has retired.

The leadership has already fallen on its sword, now the campaign team and strategists need to atone for their sins. Grant Robertson can probably escape as he is a relatively new MP, but Trevor Mallard has death stalking him for his inept handling of everything.

If Mallard had any decency he would resign from parliament immediately.

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.
