Mallard attempts distraction instead of talking about the Port

Trevor Mallard continues to run the comms strategy, talking about almost anything instead of talking, like a good unionist he is, about the festering Ports dispute.

There isn’t a single post on Red Alert about the simmering dispute. Not from Mallard, not from Curran, not from Fenton and she is the spokesperson!

Nothing. Labour is missing in action and Mallard is blogging his bizarre conspiracy theories again and insulting the Prime Minister by suggesting he doesn’t have the nads.

It is all about the politics of distraction.

Let me get this straight. Mallards rides to Taupo along the Desest Road, on a day when Labour is attacked nationwide from Martyn Bradbury to Denis Welch to Chris Trotter and he posts about Key’s balls?

I don’t think there is any question that John Key has the nads. He called the election in January for November 26 against all conventional wisdom. He called the election after the World Cup, against all conventional wisdom. He declared early on that he would campaign on asset sales and won the election…yeah I’d say he has balls…whereas Mallard..what did he do during election year? ..Oh that’s right he called out a blogger, challenged him to a race in a sport in which he is professional and refused the back up challenge. Some tough guy he is.

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.
