Nasty and Low, Mallard goes after families

With Labour leaderless it’s left to Trevor Mallard to go low.

What a total shambles they are.

He then followed up that performance with a press release demanding repayment. 

Since he seems so keen on repayment of people inappropriately obtaining benefit after quitting their job perhaps he might like to demand David Shearer likewise cough up for his over-payments.

The Leader of the Opposition is paid:  $262,700

Vs Backbencher: $144,600

The difference is $118,100

That amounts to an extra $2,271 a week that Shearer’s collecting on leave as leader of the opposition while no longer being in the role.

For the record the median weekly income is around $560… so David  Shearer is collecting more than four times this amount by sitting on his arse on gardening leave while Labour and the Opposition remain leaderless…on top of that he will still be availing himself, no doubt, of the ministerial limousines until one of the three stooges takes over.

Trevor Mallard has opened Labour up now to personal attacks against members of their families. Since Trevor Mallard doesn’t really have a record of building families, rather he prefers wrecking, them it is a bit rich for him to lead off this attack.

The new Labour leader needs to show they are family friendly by sacking Trevor Mallard and with the EPMU and SWFU in his electorate if he doesn’t go they should be able to stitch up a selection for the Anyone But Trevor candidate…perhaps a little judicious jiggery-pokery with the boundaries wouldn’t go amiss either.

In any case it looks like the Nasty Party is well and truly back now.

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.
