The Hipkins Standard, Ctd

Oh dear of dear. Chris Hipkins really is a failure when it comes to political history.

Poor old Chippy tweets today:

Clearly he forgot his former leader…and past task master slipped off at the ignominious end of her political career to the United Nations…where she has just been sprung in an act of crass hypocrisy. Cactus Kate reminded the hapless Chippy of the facts:

Perhaps Chris Hipkins learned the “The Hipkins Standard” from the lap of Helen Clark? Should it perhaps be renamed the Clark Doctrine?

Of course National supported Helen Clark’s case to the UN which Mr Hipkins seems to forget and she’s hardly a crony…

And after all… if she wasn’t there Darren Hughes would have had no one to hide out with when he left Annette’s place eh?

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.
