Navel Gazing

Haven’t they done this yet… ?

Isn’t this what they say every year… ?
I didn’t think David Shearer like meetings?

What came out of the last round of this navel gazing… oh that’s right, David Shearer singing Country Roads to much ridicule, Phil Goff riding a motorcycle trying to be more ‘hip’, an Axe The Tax campaign that wasn’t really an axe the tax campaign, and an increasingly inane series of tweets from Labour MPs who were all connecting and getting a really good feedback on the ground.

Then of course there was the famous ‘survey’ of the public to find out if Labour could be more cool, laid back, funky etc…

As they say there’s nothing new under the sun in politics, but Shearer appears to be re-running the 2008-11 playbook – with less conviction.

Great idea Labour. Looking forward to it. I need to update this this video:

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.
