Grant Robertson, can he be Prime Minister?

Grant Robertson

A large number of pinkos like David Farrar think Grant Robertson can be Prime Minister. This is possible, but Grant may struggle going on his past performance. In a series of posts I will look into the possibility of Grant becoming PM, and the barriers he will have to over come.

Those inside Labour boost Grant as he has built a team of loyalists inside the leaders office. Shearers staff are really Grant’s staff. Fran Mold, Alistair Cameron and others are just biding time until they can replace Shearer.   
Grant has Helen Clark’s blessing, although he doesn’t have her talent, and is still representing an era that Clark lead New Zealand through but New Zealand’s voters got sick of nearly a decade ago. The longer Clark is out of office the more her influence wanes, and while she still has a huge amount of power in Labour, this alone will probably not be enough to get Grant across the line.

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.
