The result is blunt.

New Zealand has rejected the politics of envy of the left wing.

The voters have rinsed the Mana party.

They have destroyed the Internet party.

The credibility of the media is in tatters.

And John Key has increased his votes, destroyed Labour. They will now finish themselves off with internecine fighting.

Labour has real problems, they have had no renewal and still have a caucus filled with has-beens of the Clark era.

More than 1 million people voted for National, the missing million is in National’s camp.

Less than half that amount voted for Labour.

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.
