Why would Grant lie about Alf?

Grant Robertson is out and proud, he is openly gay and uses that as an electoral crutch when it suits him.

However for some strange reason he lied to Seven Sharp the other night about the whereabouts of his partner Alf while trying to portray himself as a blokes bloke at the pub to watch rugby…with Kris Fa’afoi and for some unknown reason Auckland based MP Jacinda Ardern.

I presume the other MPs would have been in Wellington for the Levin meeting – quite why we’re paying for Jacinda to be in Wellington for a meeting of the faithful in Levin is the question… 

Why would Grant do that?

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.
