Paranoid Winston Peters dumps candidate?

Via the Tipline

NZ First is in dire straights. They only had two people nominated in Tauranga  – Murray Guy, the ex city councillor being the frontrunner. Both were rejected. Guy is pretty annoyed after being promised a high list ranking by Winston’s minion Edwin Perry…


This of course reflects the fact that all of NZ First being a “party” is a face.  It is nothing more than a Winston Peters cult.  And those who want to be on the ride only have to do one thing:  say nothing.   You’re just there for 3 years to take the money and to do absolutely nothing of substance.  

To be fair, Murray has bigger plans and wants to make a difference.


So no matter how good the candidate, no matter how much supported by the party hierarchy, if Winston doesn’t like the cut of your jib, you’re dead in the water.

Winston is paranoid.

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.
