PM takes Cunliffe’s advice

When the Cunliffe became Labour leader he issued a challenge to the PM.

Inexplicably – the PM’s now taken that up:

With only 71 days to the election, Prime Minister John Key is taking an extended overseas holiday, thought to be at his bolt-hole on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

When the Herald contacted his office yesterday for comment on renewed calls for Foreign Minister Murray McCully to resign, it was told he was on holiday and would not be back at work until July 21.

Assuming he plans to spend Sunday July 20 reading Cabinet papers for the next day’s meeting, that’s a 10-day break.

Good on the PM for getting a break now while he can.

Gives David Cunliffe a great chance to grab the agenda and inject some hope back into Labour’s campaign….oh wait he’s gone skiing for a week.

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.
