Sucker’s Trap Don’t Fall For It

Red Alert

Grant Robertson is all cock-a-hoop about an endorsement for Labour’s organisational review. I haven’t said anything about it because I really, really, really want them to go ahead with it.

I am amazed at the thoroughness of Labour’s review. Their working party has done a great job. Assuming the recommendations pass at their conference, the Labour Party has the tools to become a formidable machine.

But Grant seems enamoured with Matt McCarten’s endorsement. I’m not so sure he should be. Matt is a cunning bastard…I’m pretty sure he is saying it is great because he knows that in two to three years time these sorts of changes are going to seriously bite Labour on the arse.

Then, if he is still alive, whatever cause he is supporting will be able to cannibalise the wreckage of a party wracked with factionalism, with locked in union affiliates commanding a 20% head start in any leadership battle and the activist base and their loony ideas being foisted on the party with no ability for them to ignore it.

It’s a suckers trap for Labour, don’t fall for it.

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.
