Profoundly Dead?

We all know Winston Peters has lost his hair, hence the wig. We also know that the bottle appears to have got the better of him. After yesterday’s performance I’m starting to think he has lost his marbles.

In a bid to cement his place as the real Leader of the Opposition despite the obvious handicaps that come with advanced years he sent out a press release supporting Mojo Mathers as New Zealand’s first “profoundly dead” MP.

NZ First reacted quickly to the news, speedily issuing a media statement announcing that the party would help meet the extra cost, but made an unfortunate error in the second paragraph.

“This follows the refusal of the Speaker’s Office to allow special funding for the equipment needed by Ms Mathers who is New Zealand’s first profoundly dead MP,” the original statement read.

Perhaps they were talking about Winston Peters, New Zealand’s first Zombie politician, who is profoundly dead.

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.
