Grant Robertson reheating The Standard?

I watched Question Time today and saw Grant Robertson asking his questions with his usual shock and awe approach…but something just didn’t ring true about his revelations:

It was really a nasty little smear that he launched there. But it just sounded like we had heard all this before.

And it would seem that he is in fact reheating an OIA request that The Standard ran way back in October 11, before the election.

So this is not new and Labour appears to have The Standard acting as their research unit.

The EC considered all of this in the decisions it reached.

So actually, the PM has been totally open and transparent, and Grant Robertson and Labour are so bereft of ideas they are now running lines that flopped on a blog a month before the election.

All the ahhhhs, and grimaces from Labour are now surely contrived in a bid to manufacture a story out of something revealed publicly several months ago. I just bet the media breathlessly report all this tomorrow as some sort of new revelation.

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.
