One of our readers came up with this bit of research

An example of how badly Cunliffe is actually doing; here are the preferred PM numbers from party leaders a month or so in the job –  

Lange – Feb 1983 31%
McClay – Feb 1985 16%
Bolger – April 1986 22%
Palmer – September 1989 40%
Moore – October 1990 38%
Clark – Feb 1994 21%
Shipley – Dec 1997 35%
English – Nov 2001 18%
Brash – Feb 2004 26%

With Cunliffe on 12%, it doesn’t look flash for him.  He’s already written off before he gets started.

National support is 45%, Key as preferred PM: 43%  – 95.6% support of own party

Labour support is 34%, Cunliffe as preferred PM: 12%  – 35.3% support of own party

United Labour Party my arse…

The unions are the tail wagging the dog  here, and even their own voter base don’t like the look of it.

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.
