Winston’s Wisdom, Ctd

Earlier this week I promised a new series of clips from Winston’s long, long political career.

After his naked opportunism over the tea-pot tapes (which turned out to be a complete fizzer) I thought it might be worthwhile to remind Kiwis that Winston Peters is the king of sideshows.

I dug this out from my ’08 archives.  It seems the media are only the enemy, when it’s Winston being asked the questions.

Muldoon once said Peters had an ‘acute political mind’.  But one thing that Winston has never learned to say is sorry – because it’s never, ever his fault.

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.
