Labour goes where John Key fears to tread

One of the reasons Maurice Williamson didn’t stand was John Key’s and National’s reluctance to use the National party brand in local body elections.

Labour has no such qualms, going so far as to even have their Deputy Leader authorise candidates campaign materials including their Facebook page.


It’s interesting that Labour’s candidate for Wellington City Council’s Lambton ward, Mark Peck, is having his advertisements and Facebook page authorised by Grant Robertson MP – at his constituency office address (220 Willis Street).


Aren’t constituency offices funded by Parliamentary Services and, if so, is that a valid use of taxpayers’ funds?

Robertson’s website states his electorate office is at 220 Willis Street.

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.
