There is something troubling me at the moment: It is the opposition parties leadership.

I want to be serious here. Of course we criticise them mercilessly, and rightly so, they are such easy targets. However, what concerns me is the entrenched ignorance that motivates their vindictive, nasty and insulting commentary in the belief that, some how, it is appealing to voters. It was evident from the results of the last election that middle NZ’s were not impressed with this strategy, however they have continued in this vein, thus raising the question; Why?

As much as I detest their philosophy, I have to concede that there must be a degree of intelligence, however misguided, in their collective makeup.  

I understand their frustrations when they are confronted with one of the most popular PMs and Governments in history. I understand their frustrations over a booming economy. I understand their own internal frustrations, but what I can’t understand is their inability to combat these frustrations. If they can’t engage the populous in positive alternatives then they will never be fit to govern.

The opposition is barren. There appears to be no one who can guide this rudderless craft; and that is sad. I would never want a socialist government, but if it came to pass, then I would expect some dignity in the honour of leading our country and right now they are incapable of that. All the anger and abuse that erupts from these frustrations will destroy them.

George is dead right, just look at the frothing, the attempted bans and anger, death threats and bullying from the left wing.

They are constant crying tears of impotent rage and it is so unbecoming and graceless.

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.
