What National losing 4% means, Ctd

Very few new MPs unless a new MP is selected in a safe blue seat. In 2014 there will be no path into parliament as a new list MP, and you will not win any marginal seats from Labour.

National is useless at looking after potential MPs, bringing them into the fold early and making them feel part of a team. They are more likely to make them feel like second class citizens.

The second class citizen thinks that they might as well not bother running in a red seat or a marginal for National in a losing campaign when they have no chance of getting into parliament. They will think they will be better waiting for National to become popular again, and run then.

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.
