Ed Channels Phil, Ctd

Ed Miliband really should give Phil Goff a call to ask how his latest plan for opposing welfare cuts is going to pan out:

Labour’s policy is to back the cuts. But its story is the cuts are “too far and too far fast”. Labour’s policy is to cut the deficit. But its story is deficit reduction is creating a “jilted generation”. Labour’s policy is to cap benefits. But its story is that a cap on benefits is “indecent”.

Ed Miliband is facing some tough questions on how his party has got itself into such a mess on welfare. If he wants to answer them he’s going to need to get his story straight.

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.
