Charlie Shovel Resigns, sick of being beaten to a pulp by Crusher

Charles Chauvel has resigned making way for The Caropotamus, Carol Beaumont to return to parliament. Clearly Chauvel has had enough of being ignored by Shearer, and the final straw may have been Shearer’s pro-homophobe stance yesterday:

Labour MP Charles Chauvel is resigning from Parliament to take up a job with the United Nations in New York.

Mr Chauvel, a List MP, said he had resigned effective from March 11.

He will work for the UN Development Programme organisation former Prime Minister Helen Clark leads – as an advisor on Parliamentary Development and Democratic Governance. 

Mr Chauvel said Ms Clark was not involved in his selection – “I don’t think she even knows I have the job.”

Mr Chauvel was one of MP David Cunliffe’s supporters in the leadership contest between David Shearer and Mr Cunliffe last year.

Of course Helen had nothing to do with it, yeah we believe you Chuck.

More obvious is that Shearer was obviously going to dump him way down the pecking order for picking the wrong side int he leadership battles.

Meanwhile the perils of Labour’s list have been shown up with the decidedly average and awful Carol Beaumont returning. At least the  Ardern hating Witches of Labour-wick will have a new member of the coven now.

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.
