Remedial MP course for Trademe Trevor

Trevor Mallard is cock a hoop about scoring a trip to the UK. He even skited about it on Twitter and Facebook in the interests of full disclosure:

Well…in the interests of full disclosure he is attending the 61st Westminster Seminar on Parliamentary Practice & Procedure. The seminar is described as:

First held in 1952, the Westminster Seminar has long been a fixture in the CPA calendar. It is designed as an intensive period of study primarily for newly elected MPs and early-career clerks from across the Commonwealth.

One wonders if it might have been better for Trevor to have attended the 34th Westminister Seminar when he was commencing his career. By attending this one it simply looks like he is either troughing it up or his caucus and leader have decided that he needs remedial lessons in being an MP.

I wonder if there was a caucus vote and given his embarrassments of the past month having him out of the country for two weeks was a way of smoothing the path for his more permanent exit.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
