The Huddle


I was on Larry Williams show The Huddle last night, with Josie Pagani.

Our topics were:

The referendum on asset sales will be held. Apparently the cost of having it as a stand alone vote would be $31 million. The cost of tagging it on to a general election would be $9 million. Either way it does feel like the horse has bolted and there’s nothing to be gained through holding a NON-binding referendum on an issue whereby assets have already been sold. Labour and the Greens are claiming a victory.  

Then we have the Labour party leadership race on – and that’s turning out to be a messy little affair. I can’ t for the life of me see how this whole voting system is good for the party. They are running off at the mouth saying they’re going to do all of these things – which are fiscally impossible – and they’re not even the leader yet – let alone the Prime Minister. The other issue is that if it’s Cunliffe or Robertson who win they’re only going to be likely to take votes off the Greens – and that’s not where elections are won or lost! This whole spectacle of them cannibalising each other is quite unseemly and doesn’t exactly bode well for the future.

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.
