Tau and the five National Votes

Sources close to Tau Henare are telling me that like a good old fashioned union fixer Tau’s improbable adventure is well prepared and well thought through. It may look like an adventure but word on the street is he has done what all good union fixers do and got the numbers lined up behind him.

This includes five disaffected National MPs who will vote for Tau to spite the leadership. Practicing extreme low bastardry Tau has told the five to say nothing and lie about their voting intentions until the actual vote.

Couple that with the strange idea that National backbenchers would somehow vote for the politburo’s anointed candidate for Speaker just so they can get Nick Smith, the man most responsible for the toxic culture at ACC and had to resign because he lobbied on behalf of his old flame and Michelle Boag.

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.
