Young Labour go Nasty, again

The Labour caucus went to ground yesterday over the Aaron Gilmore “Dickhead Debacle” having been hushed up by Robertson’s Press Team in the Labour Leader’s office.

Instead it was Young Labour members who went off message resorting to homophobic and racist slurs towards National List Candidate, Claudette Hauiti, on Twitter.

The venom came from ex-Young Labour Vice President, Chelsea Torrance. She’s also highly active in the Labour women’s “Vimins” branch.

Also spitting venom was Robertson staffer, Reed Fleming, who got in on the attack.

It’s more hypocrisy but not surprising. They won’t attack Gilmore after their own Ruth “rehab” Dyson failed a breath test and was booted out of cabinet by Clark in 2000.

So there you have it. One week they’re trying to shore up the gay community by taking credit for marriage equality and the next, a filthy attack singling out Claudette for her race and sexuality.

Trevor Mallard must have taken over Young Labour because they’re the new nasty.

How can Young Labour President Jessie Lipscombe stand for such bile from her own Executive?

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.
