Helping Grant out, Ctd

Yesterday I blogged about Grant Robertson’s site garnering ideas for the improvement of Wellington.

Grant Robertson is Deputy Leader of the Labour party and he hasn’t got a single logo anywhere and never mentions Labour — how is that for faith in the new leadership/party?

The site also doesn’t have a parliamentary crest on it, suggesting that Grant has paid for this himself…it can;t be Labour that paid for it because there isn’t any Labour logos.

However his parliamentary staffer has designed the site:

Grant Robertson  Thanks Scott, it was designed by the fabulously talented Kurt Sharpe.

And registered it to his home address:

registrant_contact_name: Kurt Sharpe
registrant_contact_address1: ** H***** St
registrant_contact_city: Wellington
registrant_contact_province: Wellington
registrant_contact_postalcode: 6012
registrant_contact_country: NZ (NEW ZEALAND)
registrant_contact_phone: +64 27 622****
registrant_contact_fax: +64 27 622****

registrant_contact_email: [email protected]

His electorate office is the contact – yet there’s no hint of who paid for it….though with the involvement of his staff member it is looking like we won’t be troubling the a rocket scientist with the figuring out.

The site also appears to be hosted offshore…clearly Grant Robertson doesn’t think much of Buy NZ Made when it comes to public advocacy.

He is also harvesting email addresses and phone numbers yet there is no open declaration of what they will be used for.  Remember he was busted for dubious privacy behaviour with his sevens petition – this looks like exactly the same thing.

Some things never change with the Labour party.

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.
