Skulduggery or Corruption?

Skulduggery is such an awesome word, though seldom used.

I used it extensive to blog about the tricks some ratbags were using in the national party Rodney selection and now Tracy Watkins is using it in discussing the Labour leadership talent quest.

The gloves appear to be off behind the scenes, with claims and counter claims from each side over how many votes they have within the caucus and wider party and among union affiliates. 

There are also claims of skulduggery, with suggestions that offers of winnable list spots are being offered to electorate officials able to bring in local votes.

I know of at least one bribe from one camp if the votes can be delivered…a high list ranking for a decidedly nasty and unelectable candidate if they delivr the local votes for David Cunliffe.

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.
