Who should replace Nick Smith? Ctd

In my haste to get out an earlier post I overlooked all round good guy and mate of Whale, Simon Bridges.

Simon is an exceptionally bright, capable MP who does a lot of good work under the radar, as well as having a public persona through his time on TV as a young gun.

Pros: Oxford educated, erudite man who’s ability to grasp difficult issues quickly makes him highly regarded among his peers.

Articulate MP who gets along with people and has a bevy of followers who worship him. A real hit with the ladies, and likely to be able to sell policy to a crucial demographic for National.

Urban Maori background, and a westie who understands what it means to live in West Auckland.

Cons: Eye slightly taken off the ball by the recent birth of his first child, but this is no reason to leave him out of cabinet.

Jealous peers dislike his magnetic pull with the fairer sex. Trevor Mallard jealously calls him “Cougar Bait”.

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.
