Credit where it is due: Andrew Little is setting a new record


Politics has been having trouble getting above the noise of allegedly sexually violated strippers and allegedly sexually harassed secretaries.   And boy has Andy been lucky.

He’s made a few boo boos over the last few days, but as they haven’t hit the media, he can get away with them.  After all, we’re all allowed to be incompetent when nobody really notices. 

Mind you, he hasn’t used Twitter for five days, nothing on Facebook for four days, so we can only rely on some of the comments he’s made at the request of the media.


And no wonder he is hiding:

  • appeared naked on a rug
  • made a joint appearance with right-winger Stuart Nash, and
  • got absolutely zero out of the Auditor General and is still being sued for defamation

Some people suggested that either one of those three should reset the “ballsup” counter, but we want to be fair to Andrew Little and only count his true ballsups.

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.
