Blair Cunningham sums up David Shearer’s speech succinctly:

Cold water’s being poured on Labour leader David Shearer’s vision for the party.

He’s keen to keep the capital gains tax policy but not so keen on a tax free threshold.

Prime Minister John Key has labelled Mr Shearer’s speech underwhelming.

He says the reason most MPs come to Parliament would be the same.

“That kids get a decent education and we all live happy and healthy lives. We all have good, secure jobs, and we’re safe in our communities. Guess what? All 121 MPs probably think that. The issue is the ‘how’, and there’s absolutely no ‘how’ in that speech from David Shearer today.”

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.
