Big Money Doesn’t Win Campaigns



If you listen to the Greens you would think that Big Money was the most evil thing in politics, and that the wealthy could buy their way to power.

This election has proven this to be bullshit.

Colin Craig and Kim Dotcom have pissed away over $4m each on losing causes.

They spent far more than Labour or the Greens or Winston and still lost.

Money doesn’t buy elections. You need competent people, not egomaniacs. Money helps but if you don’t spend it wisely you end up with the results Kim and Colin got. 

Colin Craig and Kim Dotcom have wasted $4m each on losing causes.

Both made typical egomaniac mistakes. They both thought that success in other fields would transfer to success in politics.

They were wrong.

Colin Craig surrounded himself with sycophants. They told him how great he was, rather than telling him he was a moron for not getting proper professional campaign advisors in.

He pissed away his money doing it his way, rather than bringing a professional christian campaign manager out from the United States. He could have tapped all their knowledge to reach out to a significant part of our society that believes in god and holds similar views to Colin.

Kim Dotcom did reach out to professionals, but he managed to pick professional losers.

The hard left always lose, and by getting proven losers Martyn Bradbury and Laila Harre he didn’t just back the wrong horse he backed a couple of dead donkeys.

He should have kept on the seppo he had out here who was a campaign expert, and he should have asked Martyn and Laila what they had ever won before wasting his money.

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.
