There are pretty solid rumours going around that Labour is flat broke. They have launched their Kiwibuild policy via parliamentary services which is an indicator of poverty in the party coffers.

But the sure fire way to ascertain whether or not a party is broke is if they maintain their international memberships like Socialist International.

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.
