Charles Chauvel Redux

Further to David Farrar’s post about Charlie Shovel today about his propensity for self promotion, which bought him trouble under Clark and also under Goff.

I was rummaging through videos at the weekend and found this piece on Charles Chauvel, talking about how important it was for him to be on Labour’s frontbench, and take his rightful place at the decision-making table. 

He’s been trying to make out that his likely demotion in today’s reshuffle had no impact on his decision to resign from Parliament and go to the UN – but this shows just how important it really was to him. His decision to throw his toys and  jump ship demonstrates how divided the Labour Party really is below the surface.

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.
