David Cunliffe Can Tell Lies

The tipline’s been running hot with advice from the Anyone But Cunliffe club.

They put me on to an interview that Contestant #2 did before the last election.

Turns out that the breastfeeding excuse that David Cunliffe gave to the media for living in a flash house in Herne Bay is quite different to the one he gave to Otago University students.

In this interview, he said it was his wife’s decision because he was mooching off her and she paid for it. 

Furthermore, he wouldn’t wish being Prime Minister on a ‘dog’; didn’t support gay marriage; said the Greens were quite close to his own politics; and backed the first $5000 being tax free alongside GST off fruit and vegetables.

If he can’t tell a lie – then he stands by these statements?

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.
