New Co-Leadership of Opposition announcement leaked

via the tipline

In view of the recent polling which has shown that a Green/Labour coalition is now on the cards with winning the next election and another poll which shows Russel Norman only a few percentage points behind David Shearer in the preferred Prime Minister stakes, the two parties have got together and worked out a perfect way to show how the new government might look to voters.

My sources inside Labour and the Greens have disclosed that e deal has been reached and Russel Norman will now take his place on the bench beside David Shearer as co-leader of the opposition. Grant Robertson will need to shuffle down a bit to make room but Russel’s seat will be filled by another Labour person so there won’t be any problems. 

This is the second step, after the joint Green/Labour power policy, to show Kiwi voters just how closely they are working together. Now with them being bench mates it will give both leaders a much needed boost in future polls, as well as equal television coverage of parliament, as David Shearer sits and nods while Russel Norman really spikes John Key’s guns

A memo has been leaked outlining the seating changes to take effect when Parliament resumes this afternoon.

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.
