Cunliffe shows why he deserves his nickname

I can forgive people if they weren’t glued to the debate on the Dairy Industry Restructuring Bill in Parliament last night.

But there was a fascinating exchange involving wanna-be Labour Leader David Cunliffe who couldn’t seem to grasp what it was they were debating.

When he was repeatedly warned about straying off topic, he seemed to go into meltdown.

Instead of constructing an argument that would be allowed, he just repeated the same sentence over and over again.

This is the person the membership wanted as leader but was passed over by the old huard in favour of David Shearer.

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.
