Impotent

NZ Herald

John Armstrong is harsh on the pathetic and lack-lustre effort int eh house yesterday. Basically he is saying they are as impotent as eunuchs:

Labour leader David Shearer had upped the ante earlier in the day by saying that the sales process was now variously a “complete shambles” and a “complete train wreck”.

At least Labour tried, however. Green co-leaders Metiria Turei and Russel Norman were absent, as was Mana’s Hone Harawira. New Zealand First confined itself to a couple of enigmatic questions from Winston Peters.

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.
