Minor Losers, Ctd – Grant Robertson – 3rd in the Party Vote



Grant Robertson was one of the major losers of 2014, failing in his bid for the leadership for a second time.

He was beautifully knifed by Phil Twyford, in a great play by an otherwise unknown politician.

This doesn’t qualify him as a minor loser.   

What qualifies Robbo as a minor loser is his abject failure in the party vote in his own electorate. He could only manage third.

National 14,689
Greens 11,545
Labour  9,306

This is an absolutely devastating result for Robbo.

He has pathetically talked about how others need to win the party vote, yet he can’t do it himself.

This is testimony to his lack of political ability as well his pious hypocrisy. Robbo would be well advise to spend the summer reflecting on how he will win the party vote in 2017 because sources inside Fraser House are saying that the party hierarchy are sick of him going on about the party vote when he cannot win it himself.

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.
