Is Trevor on secondment in the UK?

The master of Social Media Own Goals (SMOG) in New Zealand is Trevor Mallard. He marshalled the online forces of Labour to hand John Key victory online in the recent election. He must have passed on some of his expertise to Labour in the UK:

Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, has bungled the simple task of sending a tweet to mark the death of Bob Holness, the host of Blockbusters.

Mr Holness died peacefully in his sleep early this morning aged 83.

A message posted from Ed Miliband’s Twitter account read: “Sad to hear that Bob Holness has died. A generation will remember him fondly from Blackbusters.”

The message was hastily deleted, and re-written to correctly refer to the 1980s trivia quiz as “Blockbusters”.

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.
