Inappropriate Nicknames

With my call for new nicknames for the politicianary I must note something for the record.

Now Jacinda Ardern has moved to the front bench she needs to be taken a bit more seriously so she doesn’t need a nickname mocking her appearance. We don’t do it for male MPs, except for Lindsay Tisch and so we should raise the bar a bit on nicknames regarding appearance.

Her nickname really needs to reflect the damage she could do to New Zealand if she ever wields power.

So she is no longer going to be called “my little pony” or “Neigh Neigh” and is going to revert to her old nickname “Socialist Cindy”.

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.
