Can Andrew Little do a deal with Winston?



Labour’s latest hope as leader has yet to face the really tough question about forming a government.

Unless something seriously unexpected happens, for Little to form a government he is going to need Winston Peters to support him. 

While it is a long way from the 2017 election and there are many changes that could occur before then, the simple maths is that Little will need 61 or 62 seats in Parliament to be Prime Minister.

It is hard to see him finding any pathway to 61 seats without the support of New Zealand First.

Not unexpectedly the media have ignored this salient fact and no one has troubled themselves to actually ask Winston what he thinks.

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.
