#Laboursgottalent already into the nasty

Didn’t take long, but to be expected from the Nasty Party.

Felix Marwick reports at NewstalkZB:

While the candidate list for the Labour Party leadership remains to be finalised, a full scale campaign’s already underway on social media.

Twitter accounts are already up and running – each staking a claim for the three main candidates, Grant Robertson, David Cunliffe, and Shane Jones. 

And there’s already some niggle – the account backing Shane Jones is accusing Grant Robertson of email spamming party members.

The Cunliffe backer is accusing Robertson’s supporters of being nasty.

And the Twitter account backing Grant Robertson has managed to spell the MPs name incorrectly.

The next few weeks are going to be awesome.

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.
