#LaboursGotTalent – None of the Above winning online poll

“None of the above” continues a brilliant campaign for the Labour leadership, and will undoubtedly benefit from the withdrawal of Jacinda Ardern

One of Labour’s rising stars has ruled out a bid for the party leadership.

Since David Shearer confirmed he was standing down as leader yesterday, Auckland list MP Jacinda Ardern, the party’s social development spokeswoman, had avoided the media, refusing to comment in Parliament.   

She confirmed she would not be standing this afternoon.

“Many have predicted this already but thought I should confirm – I won’t be putting myself forward for Labour leader,” she told her followers on Twitter.

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.
