A Good Rule

The Australian

In Queensland the Labor party does not now automatically get recognised as a political party:

Labor was reduced to only 11 seats in 1974, and on latest counting tonight appeared set to retain only nine seats. Some analysts put the figure even lower, at seven.

This would mean Labor falling short of official party status and relying on the incoming LNP government to grant it party offices, staff and resources.

We should introduce a similar rule. If you don’t have 10 MPs you don’t have a leadership budget. It is a joke to think Peter Dunne is a party, rather than just an independent MP.

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.
