The Hypocrisy of Labour, Ctd

Labour and other assorted lefties are having a swipe at Judith Collins for appointing Wayne Mapp to the Law Commission. They suggest that she has done this for a mate. They clearly have no idea about who Judith Collins considers to be a mate, but Wayne Mapp wouldn’t even remotely qualify. This is simply a case of taking one for the team and having to put up the name because others have said you have to. She will be very annoyed that she now has to grimace and take it even harder.

However the rank hypocrisy of Labour is unsurprising in an attempt to try and get a hit on Judith Collins:

Labour leader David Shearer said the appointment needed scrutiny.

“The perception is that there have been a number of appointments made that have been close to National.

“These types of appointments might just fuel that perception – that National is looking after their own.”

Remember Mike Williams $240,000 worth of board positions anyone? Or indeed any number of patsy appointment of unqualified but loyal Labour supporters to positions.

Wayne Mapp at least is qualified for this position.

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.
