What  is the maximum age you need to stand if you want to become a Cabinet Minister ?

Depends, people like Grosser or Finlayson or Parata are of relatively advanced years but got into Cabinet quickly. This is not typical, and it is more likely you will have to serve time before you get into cabinet. Older candidates do not make it, and age is an issue, so I recommend getting into parliament before you are 45 if you want a cabinet position.

At 45 you have plenty of time to last several cycles, meaning you can afford doing time in opposition.

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.
