Yeah that’ll sell them

Cash-strapped Labour’s latest fundraising drive is the sale of Paid Parental Leave tee-shirts at $25 a pop.

Perhaps they can put that money towards paying for the policy, which Labour itself estimated to cost $150m.

Thankfully for Labour, there’s now bound to be a stampede of people wanting the shirts, given Sue Moroney’s modelling efforts…

I’m not sure this version of the shirt is a winner though…telling us that Labour plans to borrow the $150 million. Great messaging for Labour’s policy. One shirt says we can’t afford it and the other says we need to borrow millions to fund it…way to go Labour.

UPDATE: Some of you haven’t grasped that the shirts have added truthiness statements at the bottom.

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.
