Where’s the Money Moira?

The Labour Party is flat broke, and has been since “Fat Tony” stopped shaking down people for funds.

Under Andrew Little donations to the party just about dried up entirely, and Moira Coatesworth hasn’t done anything to fill up the coffers. 

Labour have asked Ross Robertson not to force a by election in Manukau East as they can’t afford to fund the by election in Ikaroa Rawhiti and the pending by-election in Christchurch East when Lianne becomes mayor of Christchurch.

Sources inside Labour HQ are saying that if Peter Dunne resigned Labour may not be able to afford a campaign in Ohariu, and to hold onto Christchurch East.

Fat Tony must wonder what has happened to his party. God knows Helen doesn’t care anymore.

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.
