Random reader observations about #Laboursgottalent

A reader emails:

If Grant Robertson becomes Labour leader, and in time, becomes Prime Minister, we’ll have to describe him as “New Zealand’s first openly gay Prime Minister”.

Just in the same way that some in Labour insist on describing Helen Clark as “New Zealand’s first elected female Prime Minister.”

There is some debate that Michael Joseph Savage was gay.

Personally I couldn’t give a toss for who someone sleeps with, I look at their ability and life experience and for that reason I find I am opposed to Grant Robertson rather than his sexuality. 

He has had a life time of mediocrity at everything except troughing, which he has taken a particularly liking to. He hasn’t ever had a real job, and is a the classic toady ascending through the ranks.

David Cunliffe on the other hand as pompous, arrogant and self-aggrandising as he is at least has worked in the private sector and overseas.

As Cactus Kate opined:

And for the same reasons I find I must support David Cunliffe as leader of the Labour party.

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.
